Super Bowl LVIII

CNN Sports
Quarterback, Patrick Mahomes celebrates his second Super Bowl win in a row.

On February 11th, the Kansas City Chiefs took on the San Francisco 49ers. Thousands of fans from all over the world traveled to Las Vegas, Nevada to see one of the most aggressive, and exciting games of the year. Tied at the end of the 4th quarter, the Kansas City Chiefs took the trophy with a win of 25-22. 

Kansas City Chiefs fans were exhilarated to return and watch their favorite team come back for the second year in a row to hopefully win the Super Bowl championship again. Before 2024, the 49ers took their place on the field in 2020 but unfortunately lost to the Kansas City Chiefs. It has been almost twenty-nine years since the 49ers held the Super Bowl trophy. 

At the start of the game, the pace was extremely slow with a 0-0 score by the end of the first quarter. Eager to win, Jake Moody kicked a 55-yard field goal to put the 49ers ahead 3-0 during the second quarter.

Viewer, Emily Kiernan, mentioned, “I always look forward to watching the Super Bowl with my friends and family, but this year, the slow pace threw me off. During the second quarter, there was finally a touchdown by the 49ers to raise the score to 10-0. By this time, I was ready to watch Usher kill it during the half-time show!”

At the end of the first half, Harrison Butker hit a three-point field goal to leave the score 10-3. 

Ushers half-time show lifted the intensity of the game and created a stadium full of lights and dance moves! Hoping that he would bring out special guests, Usher kicked off his performance with “Caught Up” and showed his dance skills right from the start.

Not far into the performance, Alicia Keys was brought to the stage and sang, “If I Ain’t Got You” on the piano. Later, H.E.R., Lil Jon, Ludacris,, and Jermaine Dupri shared the stage. Overall, Usher’s performance contained amazing vocals, rollerblade dancing, and a great atmosphere. 

With a final score of 25-22, the Kansas City Chiefs took the win and remained the 2024 Super Bowl champions. Watcher, Henry Sellers mentioned, “In the start the game was hard to watch, but by the end, they amount of solid plays and good calls made by both teams created an amazing ending.”
