Maroon 5 & Travis Scott Officially Confirmed as Super Bowl 2019 Headliners

Maroon 5 Travis Scott Big Boi to perform at Super Bowl 2019

Pop band Maroon 5

Maroon 5 on Sunday premiered a teaser ahead of their Super Bowl LIII halftime show, hinting at the inclusion of SpongeBob Squarepants' iconic "Sweet Victory" song. Until the league changes their policy and supports players' constitutional right to protest, no artists should agree to work with the NFL.

It's an unusually late move for the organisation, which typically has the musical act lined up for months, to make an official announcement during the second week of the playoffs - less than a month before the big game.

Maroon 5's 2019 Super Bowl halftime show airs February 3 on CBS.

"I think anyone that goes into the halftime show is in effect directly violating those that want to raise the question that the National Football League should come to terms with what they have done and continue to do to Colin Kaepernick and those that protest on criminal justice issues", Sharpton told TMZ.

Winter Weather Advisory In Effect Until Sunday
While Scotland will approach freezing temperatures on Monday afternoon most of England and Wales will see figures approaching 9C. So, if you're going down to watch the Eagles-Saints game at a Philly restaurant or with friends there, you should be fine.

The gig marks Scott's most high-profile performance to date, capping off an incredible year that saw him get a No. 1 album with Astroworld, multiple radio hits like "Sicko Mode" and a tour that had superstars like Beyonce, JAY-Z, Kim Kardashian West and Kanye West in attendance.

Travis' participation has sparked controversy following the NFL's treatment of Colin Kaepernick.

This is the first time the three-time Grammy-winning pop band has gotten the plum gig, joining other big time artists including Bruce Springsteen, Paul McCartney, The Who, Katy Perry (who could forget Left Shark?) and Tom Petty.

The only request that Travis Scott put to the NFL in order for him to perform at the seemingly-unbookable Super Bowl half time performance, the league would have to go in with him on a sizeable donation to charities that he supports. "I know being an artist that it's in my power to inspire. Join me in asking Maroon 5 to drop out of the 2019 Super Bowl halftime show".
