Maroon 5 will perform at the Super Bowl halftime show

Maroon 5 Maroon 5 To Play Super Bowl Halftime 2019

Maroon 5 will join the pantheon of Super Bowl halftime show performers.

With the Super Bowl set to be in Atlanta for the first time in 19 years, the National Football League had a real opportunity to showcase the city's incredible music culture. Maybe they'd even do something with Levine's The Voice co-stars!

This has been a long time coming for the band, who have been on a "short list" of groups over and over.

The other aspect to consider is that the Super Bowl halftime show is as much about the show as it is about the music. Along with "Moves Like Jagger", they have also penned "Love Somebody", "Sugar", "Payphone" and "Animals". I'm sure nobody can forget the infamous 2004 set from Janet Jackson (featuring Timberlake) that was marred by controversy thanks to a "wardrobe malfunction".

If they can't get Cardi, they can call up any of the people they recently collaborated with.

Levine has previously expressed interest in performing the halftime show, telling Howard Stern in 2015 that he and his bandmates "very actively want to play the Super Bowl".

One of the great challenges in choosing a halftime performer isn't just its mainstream appeal, but in finding an artist who hasn't already performed. They don't have any dates between New Year's Eve and February 19, leaving room for a Super Bowl show.
