Anyone praying that we'd be getting another iconic diva performance at the 2019 Super Bowl Halftime Show...I'm so sorry, sweetie, it's not gonna happen. Variety reported this morning that Maroon 5 are close to securing the gig. Heterosexuality wins again!
A NFL 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." The publication speculated that Maroon 5 is a safe choice for the Super Bowl, considering their lack of controversy and history of collaborations.
Maroon 5 follows 2018 halftime performer Justin Timberlake as well as Lady Gaga, Coldplay, Katy Perry, Bruno Mars and Beyonce.
