Variety first reported that Adam Levine and company had locked down the in-demand performance, noting that the group’s proclivity towards all-star collaborations – like the Cardi B-featuring “Girls Like You,” “What Lovers Do” with SZA, “Cold” with Future and “Don’t Wanna Know” with Kendrick Lamar – could open the door for similar appearances.
A representative for Maroon 5 did not immediately reply to a request for comment.
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.
Maroon 5 follows 2018 halftime performer Justin Timberlake. Recent artists to headline the halftime show include Lady Gaga, Coldplay, Katy Perry, Bruno Mars and Beyoncé.
