Maroon 5 is set to perform at the 2019 Super Bowl, reports Variety.
The boy band, fronted by Adam Levine, will take the stage the night of Feb. 3, at the Mercedes-Benz Stadium in Atlanta.
With several hits like “Makes Me Wonder,” “Moves Like Jagger,” and “Lovers Do,” viewers can expect an upbeat performance from the pop-rock musicians.
Most recently, the group’s track “Girls Like You” featuring newcomer Cardi B reached No. 2 on the Billboard Hot 100 chart. So will the Bronx rapper – who now resides in the Atlanta area with husband Offset – join them on stage? Fans will have to wait and see.
While Maroon 5 has yet to comment publicly on the news, the NFL did release a statement that neither confirmed or denied Variety’s report.
“It’s a Super Bowl tradition to speculate about the performers for the Pepsi Halftime Show,” an NFL representative told Variety. “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.”
If the band is chosen, they should aim to attract more viewers than Super Bowl LII performer, Justin Timberlake. According to Nielsen, 103.4 million total viewers – a 7 percent decrease from 2017 – tuned in to watch Timberlake perform.
