The NFL Announces Super Bowl Halftime Show Artist

Maroon 5 led by frontman Adam Levine will headline the 2019 Super Bowl halftime show Feb. 3

Three-time Grammy Award-winning band Maroon 5 was named Sunday as the headline act of next month's Super Bowl 53 half-time show, a performance that has aroused controversy and protest petitions. The league says Maroon 5 will feature guest artists, including Big Boi (the Atlanta-based rapper from Outkast) and Scott.

The annual Super Bowl halftime show is one of the most high-profile entertainment events in the United States, drawing tens of millions of television viewers. "In the years since, hundreds of other National Football League players have followed suit in a campaign against racial inequality". "Join me in asking Maroon 5 to drop out of the 2019 Super Bowl halftime show".

The only request that Travis Scott put to the NFL in order for him to perform at the seemingly-unbookable Super Bowl half time performance, the league would have to go in with him on a sizeable donation to charities that he supports.

"I back anyone who takes a stand for what they believe in", said Scott in a statement about the charitable donation.

Prior to the official announcement, numerous A-list performers - Rihanna, Adele, Jay-Z, Pink and Cardi B - reportedly turned down the Super Bowl offer to support former 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick, according to a Hollywood Reporter report. "I am proud to support Dream Corps and the work they do that will hopefully inspire and promote change". Scott's No. 1 single "Sicko Mode" was nominated for a Grammy for best rap performance and best rap song, and his latest album, "Astroworld", also earned a Grammy nomination for best rap album.

Adam Levine skirted around the rumours past year that Maroon 5 would be playing the Super Bowl half-time show.

Talk of who would perform at the February 3 game at Mercedes-Benz Stadium had been ongoing for months, with reports that several artists had refused requests out of protest of the NFL.
