According to E! News, Adam Levine and his band Maroon 5 have had extensive talks with the league about performing during halftime of Super Bowl 50 in 2016. And if this comes to fruition, Levine might be moving like Jagger in front of the largest audience of his life.
A source tells E! News the other acts the NFL have discussed at one point have included Coldplay and Bruno Mars, who just performed in 2014 at Super Bowl XLVIII. However, the source says Maroon 5 is the current front-runner for the gig.
While Katy Perry’s Super Bowl performance drew 121 million viewers (the highest viewership for the halftime special according to Nielsen) and Bruno Mars’ performance brought in 115 million (2nd highest), personally I think the NFL needs to quit booking these bubblegum pop acts and shake things up a bit..
