Twitter flips out after Maroon 5 announced as Super Bowl act

Share

"Moves Like Jagger" shook things up in 2011.

Maroon 5 is set to headline the 2019 Super Bowl Halftime show, according to Variety.

But Maroon 5 have everything that the National Football League could ask for: They're commercially successful, critically acclaimed, have a massive fan base not only in America but all over the world, and their music is accessible to a very wide audience.

Maroon 5 follows up last year's performer Justin Timberlake. Most recently, Maroon 5 has been hitting it hard with "Girls Like You" featuring Cardi B, "What Lovers Do" with SZA, "Cold" with Future and "Don't Wanna Know" with Kendrick Lamar. In addition, they're not shy about collaborating with other artists.

Myrtle Beach, a SC beach resort, was virtually deserted with empty streets, boarded up storefronts and very little traffic. The eye of Hurricane Florence is expected to make landfall in North Carolina on Friday morning.

So, who could Maroon 5 bring out? They're going to give us all the hits!

Performing during the famed Super Bowl halftime show would be a dream come true for the band, with Levine telling Howard Stern in 2015 that they "very actively want to play the Super Bowl", but had been on a "short list". They have the star power and the musical power to be the big event the Super Bowl halftime show demands.

Numerous notable Twitter users bashed the halftime show choice, with many calling for Atlanta rap acts like Usher, T.I., and Migos to perform instead. It's all falling into place.
