Maroon 5 frontrunner to play Super Bowl halftime show

Maroon 5

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

Super LII is scheduled for February 3, 2019. The band itself, fronted by The Voice coach Adam Levine, has not commented, but Levine has in the past made it clear he'd love to perform there.

They're one of the most popular bands on the planet for a reason, and it's not Levine's reality competition gig.

Barr found her character's death to be disrespectful to those "who loved that family" in the original " Roseanne " show. The former sitcom star has apparently revealed how her character dies on ABC's upcoming spinoff The Conners .

The other aspect to consider is that the Super Bowl halftime show is as much about the show as it is about the music. Maroon 5 fits that bill perfectly: A record 13 of its songs have reached No. 1 on Billboard's Adult Pop Songs radio airplay chart. Mars has co-headlined the show twice in recent years, as has Beyoncé, while Justin Timberlake has appeared three times, most notoriously in 2004 when he had a literal hand in Janet Jackson's "wardrobe malfunction". If Maroon 5 can shake up the layout of an iconic venue certainly they can deliver when it comes to taking on the iconic Super Bowl. So just because Maroon 5 is playing, it doesn't mean that the National Football League can't also bring in someone like Ludacris or Janelle Monae.

Levine has long expressed his desire to check off the career milestone, telling Howard Stern back in 2015 that the band was on a "short list" of potential performers. Looking over their career, Maroon 5 could actually be a decent Halftime show if they make sure to invite all their friends. They have some big shoes to fill.
