Maroon 5, Big Boi and Travis Scott to play SuperBowl halftime show

Pop band Maroon 5 will provide the halftime entertainment at next month's Super Bowl in Atlanta in a show also featuring rappers Travis Scott and Big Boi.

Maroon 5, a three-time Grammy Award-winning group led by Adam Levine, will be joined by rising star Scott and Atlanta native Big Boi, who was previously one half of rap group Outkast.

The show will feature "the broadest range of musical genres ever seen on the Super Bowl stage", the NFL said on Sunday.

Levine on Sunday tweeted a video, showing the band preparing to go on stage. It also featured images of Scott and Big Boi.

US media reported in October that superstar Rihanna had declined an offer to headline the show because she supported former NFL quarterback Colin Kaepernick and his protest against racial injustice.

The annual Super Bowl halftime show is one of the most high-profile entertainment events in the United States, drawing tens of millions of television viewers.

Previous performers have included Beyonce, Lady Gaga, Katy Perry, Madonna, Bruce Springsteen and Prince.

The 2018 Super Bowl when Justin Timberlake performed at halftime was watched by a television audience of 103 million, the biggest by far for any TV event in the US.
