Maroon 5, the Adam Levine-led pop rock band behind hits like "Moves Like Jagger" and "Love Somebody," has reportedly "pretty much accepted" the headlining spot at the Super Bowl LIII halftime show in February, according to Us Weekly. The report is unconfirmed, but Us Weekly's sourcing on Super Bowl performances has proven to be pretty reliable through the years.

Super Bowl LII will take place February 3, 2019 at Mercedes-Benz Stadium in Atlanta. Last year's Super Bowl performer was Justin Timberlake. Maroon 5 would be the first band to play at the Super Bowl since Coldplay in 2016.

Maroon 5 would hopefully be joined by some special guests, because their catalog is less distinguished than previous recent performers like Beyoncé and Lady Gaga. Christina Aguilera is an obvious possibility as a guest performer, as she is featured on "Moves Like Jagger," as is Cardi B, who appears on the group's current single "Girls Like You," or perhaps Levine would draw upon his other The Voice connections, such as Blake Shelton, Kelly Clarkson or Alicia Keys.
