Will Adam Levine and Maroon 5 Perform Super Bowl 50 Halftime Show?


Adam Levine and Maroon 5 are reportedly in talks with the NFL to possibly sign on to perform at 2016's Super Bowl 50 halftime show, the small-town rocker turned pop icon's biggest stage yet.

As E! Online suggests, The Voice judge and his band Maroon 5 are the current "frontrunners" to play the event, although Coldplay and Bruno Mars are also being considered.

Maroon 5 playing the Super Bowl would be a logical conclusion for the pop-rock band, who are in the wake of their latest album V. The band is bigger than ever, with Levine's stint on The Voice and its viral hit "Sugar."

If Levine and co. were to take on the NFL's biggest night, they would be following in the footsteps of Katy Perry, who performed the show with the resurrected Missy Elliott appearing as a suprise guest last year. Perry's performance went viral on the internet for her goofy "Left Shark" costumed stage dancer who seemed to have some killer moves. If Levine and his band end up playing the event, there hasn't been any mention of who the surprise guest could possibly be.

Although a representative from the NFL has yet to confirm or deny this fact, the event will be here before you know it so the headliner should be announced in the coming months. Super Bowl 50 is scheduled to take place at Levi's Stadium in Santa Clara, California, on Sunday, Feb. 7, 2016, and will be broadcasted on CBS.

As it stands for Maroon 5, the band only has a few U.S. tour dates scheduled until the end of the year before they embark on an extensive overseas tour in February 2016.
