Maroon 5 has reportedly been announced as the headliner for Super Bowl LII, which will be kicking off in Atlanta, Georgia on February 3rd, 2019, according to Variety.
Led by frontman Adam Levine, Maroon 5 makes for a suitable fit for the coveted performance slot. Not only have they been consistently on top of the Billboard charts since their 2002 album Songs About Jane, but Maroon 5 has a lot of potential for exciting collaborations on the Halftime stage. Some of their more recent hits off their 2018 album V include the chance for appearances by Cardi B who was featured in “Girls Like You,” SZA from “What Lovers Do”, as well as their song “Cold” which featured Future and “Don’t Wanna Know” with Kendrick Lamar.
The band will follow in the footsteps of Justin Timberlake who performed last year with previous headliners including Lady Gaga, Coldplay, Katy Perry, Bruno Mars, and Beyoncé. You can watch Timberlake’s full performance below!
Maroon 5 has been nominated for a total of 12 Grammy awards and has walked away with three wins. Despite the band’s performance being confirmed by multiple sources, the NFL is still remaining coy in a statement released to Variety.

Having studied Media & Writing at James Madison University, I always knew that I wanted to do some type of creative writing, but being able to write about zombies, Starks, and superheroes on a daily basis for Fan Fest is my actual dream. While I probably shouldn’t be as proud as I am to be so similar to Nick Miller, I do hope to one day write my own “Pepperwood Chronicles’.
