Sources Say Super Bowl Halftime Act Is Set

Maroon 5 Maroon 5 The Canadian Press

"It's a Super Bowl tradition to speculate about the performers for the Pepsi Halftime Show", the statement begins.

The NFL reportedly has tabbed Maroon 5 as the featured halftime show performer, and that's not landing well.

The selection is hardly surprising, considering the NFL's penchant for successful yet nonthreatening middle-of-the-road acts in recent years.

The Maroon 5 singer returns with Voice mainstay Blake Shelton, along with returning coaches Jennifer Hudson (Season 13) and Kelly Clarkson (Season 14).

That has you wondering that the tweet he sent out on Monday had a lot to do what he said on Monday when he responded to a troll. The Steelers aren't going to trade away the best receiver in football because he didn't show up to work Monday .

'Smart' Neymar does not act, says Klopp
The teenager will be fresh for Tuesday night's clash after being rested in PSG's recent win over St Etienne. That makes them a big challenge for us.

The band's touring schedule also has quite a convenient gap that would allow the group to perform at the Super Bowl. I'm sure nobody can forget the infamous 2004 set from Janet Jackson (featuring Timberlake) that was marred by controversy thanks to a "wardrobe malfunction". That incident led the National Football League to avoid any halftime act that could even conceivably cause trouble, first turning to aging rock acts like Paul McCartney, the Who and the Rolling Stones and then to the current run of Billboard stalwarts.

This year's Super Bowl will be held at Mercedes-Benz Stadium, the home of the Falcons. No word yet if either collaborator will be joining Levine and his bandmates at the Super Bowl. They're going to give us all the hits!

Should those other artists have been chosen to headline over Maroon 5? As most people know, a Super Bowl Halftime show can often only be as good as the special guests who join. You can make that case, but think about this: Would they have the same worldwide appeal that this band does? In the meantime, they've played NCAA March Madness in 2016 and again in 2018-just five months ago. They have the star power and the musical power to be the big event the Super Bowl halftime show demands. It's all falling into place.
