Adam Levine and band Maroon 5 may be performing during the 2016 Super Bowl 50 halftime show.
The singer and his band are in talks to appear during NFL’s biggest event, according to E! News. The two parties have had extensive talks about the performance. However, both the NFL and the band’s representatives have yet to comment on the news.
A source also told E! that the NFL is looking to include Bruno Mars and Coldplay to the halftime show performers' list. The insider mentioned that while Super Bowl 50 organizers are eyeing other acts for the show, Levine and his Maroon 5 band remain the current front-runner of the halftime event.
Earlier in September, Billboard reported that Mars was invited to join the 2016 Super Bowl 50 halftime show. The source told Billboard that the “Uptown Funk” singer was asked to “curate” the upcoming halftime show. This means that the singer would probably be joined by other stars and performers on the show.
If true, this won’t be the first time that Mars performed during a Super Bowl halftime event. Two years ago, the singer rocked the stage for Super Bowl XLVIII, along with Red Hot Chili Peppers. Last year, NFL chose Katy Perry for its Super Bowl halftime event. Mars’ performance drew 115 million viewers, according to Nielsen, while Perry’s Super Bowl stage garnered 121 million viewers.
Meanwhile, Levine is also set to join other artists in a special primetime tribute for the iconic singer, Frank Singer, Deadline reported. “The Voice” coach will be performing with singers such as Carrie Underwood, John Legend, Alicia Keys, Garth Brooks and Usher to honor the late Sinatra and the 100th anniversary of his birth. The special, titled “Sinatra 100 – An All Star Grammy Concert,” will be held on Dec. 2 at the Wynn Las Vegas’ Encore Theater.
CBS is set to broadcast the two-hour special concert on Dec. 6.
