Maroon 5 will be the halftime performers at the 2019 Super Bowl.
Reached for comment, an NFP rep told Variety, “It’s a Super Bowl tradition to speculate about the performers for the Pepsi Halftime Show. We are continuing to work with [longtime sponsor] Pepsi on our plans but do not have any announcements to make on what will be another epic show.” A rep for Maroon 5 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 — “I Like It,” 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.
They will headline the Super Bowl LIII halftime show in Atlanta, Georgia on February 3rd, 2019.
The Super Bowl LIII halftime show, like the game itself, will air on CBS, which makes the Maroon 5 selection interesting considering that Levine is a mainstay on NBC’s The Voice, one of the rival network’s highest-rated shows.
