Travis Scott to join Maroon 5 during Super Bowl LIII halftime show

As rumoured, Maroon 5 will perform at the halftime show of Super Bowl LIII, the band confirmed today.

Levine previously spoke only in hypothetical terms - joking that "whoever is lucky enough to get that gig probably is gonna crush it" - when Ellen DeGeneres asked him about the Super Bowl during an appearance on her show in November. "I know being an artist that it's in my power to inspire".

According to insiders, "no one wants to be associated with the NFL" thanks to the league's controversy with Colin Kaepernick and his "take a knee" protest against police brutality.

A second source involved in the conversations also told ET that the NFL actually approached both Rihanna and Pink - who sang the National Anthem ahead of Super Bowl LII back in February - to perform at halftime early on, but because the negotiations took so long, both women made a decision to move on. "I am proud to support Dream Corps and the work they do that will hopefully inspire and promote change".

Performing alongside Maroon 5 are Travis Scott and Atlanta native Big Boi of Outkast.

In September, sources told ET that Maroon 5 was chosen as the Super Bowl LIII halftime performer. An online petition began circulating asking Maroon 5 to drop out of performance.

Jay-Z, Meek Mill and the Reverend Al Sharpton were among the people who sources or reports said criticized or tried to convince Scott to decline the performance.

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.
