The headliner for the halftime show at Super Bowl LIII, set to air Feb. 3 on CBS, will be the rock band Maroon 5, Billboard reports.
“While special guest appearances for the performance have not yet been finalized, Cardi B and Travis Scott are on the short list, Billboard has also learned,” the publication reports. Neither the band nor the NFL would confirm the booking.
The NFL issued a statement saying: “It’s a Super Bowl tradition to speculate about the performers for the Pepsi Halftime Show. We are continuing to work with Pepsi on our plans but do not have any announcements to make on what will be another epic show.”
The report notes that Maroon 5’s single “Girls Like You” featuring Cardi B is currently No. 2 on the Billboard Hot 100.
Billboard adds: “For Maroon 5, performing during the Super Bowl has been a longtime dream. During a 2015 interview with Howard Stern, Adam Levine admitted that the band ‘very actively wants to play the Super Bowl.’”
The game is set for the new Mercedes-Benz Stadium in Atlanta.
