The NFL and CBS may have officially decided on their Super Bowl LIII Halftime Show act and it is a group many people out there are certainly familiar with.
According to a new report from Variety, Maroon 5 is currently set to perform during the big game on February 3, which will be broadcast from Atlanta for the first time in many years. This news has not been confirmed just yet, but it does make a certain degree of sense given that they are one of the biggest pop / rock bands out there and they are well-known by most viewers. They also have collaborated with enough other major stars during their run that you can bring out other people for cameo performances here and there.
What we do wonder though, is this: Will Maroon 5 manage to deliver a Halftime Show that really delivers huge headlines, or is that something that really even matters anymore? These performances are almost always big, but in the end, they are also fairly fleeting. We don’t think that they really have the impact they did years ago unless something really controversial happens.
The thing that surprises us the most, provided that this is the actual pick, is that Maroon 5 frontman Adam Levine has so many ties to a rival network to CBS in NBC, which broadcasts The Voice — we’re not saying that they should book a CBS-friendly band, but we are still surprised that they would bring on Levine since he and Blake Shelton in particular are really synonymous with the work they do on that talent show. (They are the only two coaches who have been on The Voice from the very beginning.)
We’ll let you know in the event that this starts to become confirmed over the coming weeks — typically, though, these early reports on Halftime Show performers end up being true.
