A spokesperson of the NFL told The Hollywood Reporter, "It's a Super Bowl tradition to speculate about the performers for the Pepsi Halftime Show. We are continuing to work with Pepsi on our plans but do not have any announcements to make on what will be another epic show."

A representative for Maroon 5, fronted by lead vocalist Adam Levine, did not immediately reply to a request for comment.

In 2017, Justin Timberlake headlined the Super Bowl Halftime.

The group joins other artiste, including Lady Gaga, Coldplay, Katy Perry, Bruno Mars and Beyonce, to headline the show.
