Maroon 5, Travis Scott, Big Boi to Perform at Super Bowl

Maroon 5, Travis Scott, Big Boi to Perform at Super Bowl

Maroon 5 released a hype video to celebrate becoming the Pepsi Super Bowl LIII Haltime Show performers on Sunday.

'I'm still formulating a lot of things, ' Adam said of the band's 2019 plans when asked by Variety. "And the rumor is a rumor that everyone seems to be discussing", he said. It stands to reason that the announcement comes late in the football season schedule - Justin Timberlake, who performed at the 2018 Super Bowl, was announced on the preceding October 23; Lady Gaga, the 2017 performer, was announced on the preceding September 29 - because of negotiations dragging out.

The lineup for the most-watched musical event of the year is now official. Numerous acts have turned down the NFL in support of Colin Kaepernick and other players who have knelt during the national anthem in protest of racial injustice. In partnership with the league, Scott, 26, will make a $500,000 contribution to Dream Corps, a non-profit organization that champions social justice.

Some of the biggest names in music and entertainment have performed at Super Bowl halftime shows over the years, including Katy Perry, Lady Gaga, Beyonce, Aerosmith, Tom Petty, and Bruce Springsteen just to name a few.

A second source involved in the conversations also told ET that the NFL actually approached both Rihanna and Pink - who sang the National Anthem ahead of Super Bowl LII back in February - to perform at halftime early on, but because the negotiations took so long, both women made a decision to move on. "I am proud to support Dream Corps and the work they do that will hopefully inspire and promote change".

Super Bowl LIII will be broadcast on CBS and and streamed on on Sunday, February 3.
