The Super Bowl is one of the most watched events and one of the most popular sporting events as two final teams battle it out for the Lombardi Trophy. Aside from the entertaining matchup, most of the time, there is a group or individual who headlines the halftime show. The halftime shows can be a hit or miss usually with fans and the media. It has been confirmed that renowned band Maroon 5 will be headlining the upcoming Super Bowl.

Exciting, but unpredictable season

This year's NFL season has been pretty unpredictable with teams like the Cincinnati Bengals, the Cleveland Browns getting their very first win since 2016 behind rookie quarterback Baker Mayfield, and the Tampa Bay Buccaneers surging behind Ryan Fitzpatrick.

Teams such as the Pittsburgh Steelers and New Orleans Saints are struggling mightily.

It is still way too soon to predict which two teams will be able to reach Super Bowl 53, but people have some favorites in mind, like the explosive Los Angeles Rams with their improved defense and one of the best offenses in the league. Other favorites are teams like the New England Patriots, Kansas City Chiefs, Los Angeles Chargers, and the Green Bay Packers.

Colin Kaepernick, the leader of the movement to kneel during the National Anthem sent shockwaves throughout the NFL. An article by Variety reports that Jay-Z turned down an offer to perform at the Super Bowl because of Kaepernick still not being employed by a team in the NFL since he started kneeling back in 2016.

According to the article from a lyric in a song called "Apesh" the rapper says, "I said no to the Super Bowl: you need me, I don't need you."

Maroon 5 set to headline halftime show

Maroon 5 is set to be this year's halftime performers, according to an article by Variety and other sources. They are an acclaimed pop band who have worked with many other popular artists such as Cardi B, Future, and Kendrick Lamar.

Many performers have led exciting halftime shows, like Bruno Mars, recent performer Justin Timberlake, Katy Perry, and the Black Eyed Peas. There was a lot of sadness brought to the rap community and throughout the world, as weeks ago, rapper Mac Miller reportedly passed away at the age of 26 due to a reported drug overdose.

Many have been disappointed that Maroon 5 is headlining the halftime show, instead of other Atlanta artists, but according to an article by Bleacher Report, other well-known artists could be performing along with the band. The article states: "According to Billboard's Emina Lukarcanin, Cardi B and Travis Scott are "on the short list" of guests who could appear alongside the Adam Levine-led outfit on Feb. 3 in Atlanta."

Some took to Twitter to make some hilarious reactions to Maroon 5 performing at the Super Bowl instead of other famous Atlanta artists. Many thought other artists like Outkast, T.I., Ludacris, or the Migos should have been picked instead to represent Atlanta.

It will have to be seen how the band does at the Super Bowl, but it could be a great one if other guests like Future, Cardi B, and Travis Scott join them.
