Maroon 5 to Perform at Super Bowl Halftime




 

Maroon 5 will be the halftime performers at the 2019 Super Bowl, two sources confirm to Variety. Reps for the group and the NFL could not immediately be reached for comment.

While the group is stylistically more similar to recent performers like Justin Timberlake and Bruno Mars than more controversial ones such as Beyonce and Lady Gaga, Maroon 5's most recent hit was a tag-team with Cardi B - "Girls Like You," named one of the top songs of the summer by recent streaming service charts - and it recently collaboration with Kendrick Lamar on the song "Don't Wanna Know," so some left-field guest appearances on Super Bowl Sunday are certainly a possibility.

One of the great challenges in choosing a halftime performer isn't just its mainstream appeal, but in finding an artist who hasn't already performed. Over the years, Bruce Springsteen, Paul McCartney, The Who, Katy Perry and even the Black Eyed Peas have all performed, and of course the 2004 set from Janet Jackson (featuring Timberlake) was marred by controversy due to her "wardrobe malfunction."
