Playing the halftime show at the Super Bowl is one of music's biggest and most prestigious gigs. And now artists hoping to receive that honor are being asked to pay for the privilege.
According to The Wall Street Journal, the National Football League has eyed three possible performers for..

Our top moments of the week:
13. Birds of a Feather Award: Wednesday's episode of Arrow unites the Black Canary and the Huntress, two members of the so-called "Birds of Prey," but in a nice twist, they're adversaries. Their fight gains even more symbolism when Laurel — who will eventually become the Black Canary and a member of the "Birds of Prey" — joins the fray. An interesting way to...
It was all Top 10 all the time on Wednesday's American Idol, with the 10 finalists performing Top 10 songs from 2011 or later (a.k.a. songs that will make viewers of a certain age feel very old if they are unfamiliar with them).
Throughout the course of the evening, selfies were taken, judges Harry Connick Jr. and Keith Urban did amazing impersonations of each other, and Malaya got her first bouquet of flowers (aww) from Ryan Seacrest and the Idol crew. But let's get to the performances:
Jessica Meuse, Caleb Johnson, MK Nobilette
Let me start by saying that all the contestants on Season 13 of American Idol seem like truly lovely people. And also that I'd rather watch the green paint dry on that house in True Detective than sit through another 11 weeks of performances from this crew.
And apparently, I'm not alone. Idol's ratings have (once again) been in steady decline this season and hit an all-time low a couple of weeks ago with the Feb. 20 episode. Granted, the show faced stiff competition early on this year from the Winter Olympics, but its post-Olympics numbers remain languid.
How the American Idol judges failed MK Nobilette
Of course, the numbers could just be...
Keith Urban, Jenifer Lopez, Harry Connick, Jr.
Did American Idol's Top 13 rise to the occasion?
Monday was the official debut of the Top 13 finalists and apparently, the debut of voting at the top of the hour. The night's theme is "This Is Me," which we take to mean we can totally psychoanalyze the singers by their song choice. Will anyone dare to do "Billionaire"?
Bruno Mars, Anthony Kiedis
The Seattle Seahawks destroyed the Denver Broncos Sunday. No way around it. The Seahawks won Super Bowl XLVIII 43-8.
At a certain point, the Seahawks domination felt almost cruel. But this is football. The people on the field suffer long-term brain damage. The game is ruthless.

The Red Hot Chili Peppers will join Bruno Mars onstage for the Super Bowl halftime show next month, the NFL announced Saturday.
Bobby Moynihan, Sasheer Zamata
Lorne Michaels took the first step in fixing Saturday Night Live's diversity problem by hiringSasheer Zamata earlier this week, making the Upright Citizens Brigade alum the first black female cast member on the series since Maya Rudolph left in 2007. Zamata will face extra pressure, thanks to the ongoing controversy surrounding SNL's whitewashed cast, but new co-star Bobby Moynihan has full faith she'll be able to handle it with ease.
"I've seen her perform at UCB and I've never seen a more beautiful, confident person onstage than Sasheer," Moynihan tells TVGuide.com. "I think we're very, very lucky to get her."
