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

Travis Scott

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. It stands to reason that the announcement comes late in the football season schedule - Justin Timberlake, who performed at the 2018 Super Bowl, was announced on the preceding October 23; Lady Gaga, the 2017 performer, was announced on the preceding September 29 - because of negotiations dragging out. Numerous acts have turned down the NFL in support of Colin Kaepernick and other players who have taken a knee during the national anthem in protest of racial injustice.

The announcement, which was also shared by CBS Sports, the network broadcasting the event, comes after rumours began circulating late previous year that Maroon 5 would take the stage.

Black Panther's Michael B. Jordan told Vibe magazine in December he hoped Travis Scott, also rumoured as a performer at the time, wouldn't participate for the same reason. Scott himself donated $500,000 to Dream Corps. The rapper reportedly told National Football League he would agree to perform at the Super Bowl only if they committed to donating money towards a cause for social justice.

"I back anyone who takes a stand for what they believe in", Scott said in a statement. "I am proud to support Dream Corps and the work they do that will hopefully inspire and promote change".

This year's Super Bowl will be broadcast from Mercedes-Benz Stadium it Atlanta by CBS on February 3.
