After a powerhouse performance of Justin Timberlake in 2018, the NFL reportedly has tapped Maroon 5 to be the headliners of the 2019Super Bowl Halftime Show.
According to Variety, which cites two sources who confirm that the Adam Levine-led band on the show, which is scheduled for February 4, 2019.
Neither representatives for Maroon 5, nor the NFL immediately responded to Fox News’ request for comment.
While nothing has yet been confirmed, US Weekly notes that the Super Bowl Halftime show has long been an ambition of Maroon 5. “The Voice” coach reportedly told Howard Stern in 2015, that they “actively want to play the Super Bowl.” He went on to say that they are already on the short list of artists for a while.
The group has a big year with hits like “Girls Like you” and “Don’t Wanna Know.” Moreover, they are not shy about collaborating with other artists. Their two hits of 2018 featured Cardi B and Kendrick Lamar, respectively. As most people know, a Super Bowl Halftime show can often be just as good as the special guests that join in.
The band is expected to tour of their new album “the Red Pill Blues” for the next few months. However, there appears to be a hole in their schedule that the Halftime Show could fit perfectly.
