The halftime show brings with it some questions

The Super Bowl halftime show is always a very popular event and Usher's performance was no exception. A few moments before the game started, the most popular “football” search was “How long is halftime in American football?”

The singer's clothing also caused a stir on the Internet. Many Google users asked the following question: “Why does Usher wear gloves?”

It seems that working with Alicia Keys has inspired more than one person. The singer joined Usher and they performed two songs, “My Boo” and “If I Ain't Got You.” The 43-year-old singer began her performance sitting in front of a magnificent piano. This impacted searches for “adult piano lessons near me,” which increased by more than 250% during the halftime show.

The term “roller skates” grew by more than 1,850% when Usher was on stage. Fun fact, the search “roller skates vs. rollerblades” [patins à roulettes contre patins à roues alignées] rose sharply during and after the singer's performance.
