Famous Dutch DJ Tiësto canceled his participation as part of Super Bowl LVIII, claiming the reason was a family emergency. The artist, real name Tijs Michael Verwest, was called to enliven the sports show during some breaks, being the first famous person in his field to do this.
This in no way affects the halftime show that R&B singer Usher is producing, as it was just another independent way of trying to liven up the timeouts during the game during the NFL grand finale.
