A source tells ET that the 26-year-old rapper will join Maroon 5 on stage when the band headlines the Super Bowl halftime show. The source notes that additional guest performers will be added.
While multiple sources have confirmed that Maroon 5 is headlining the Super Bowl halftime show to ET, the band, NFL and Pepsi have not officially announced or commented. ET has reached out to all parties for comment.
“Rihanna was the front runner for next year’s Super Bowl halftime show," a source told ET in October. "CBS and the NFL reached out to Rihanna first, who, after thinking about the offer, decided to pass due to the NFL and the situation regarding players kneeling."
According to the source, the "Love on the Brain" singer "stands with the players and Colin Kaepernick."
A second source involved in the conversations also told ET that the NFL actually approached both Rihanna and Pink -- who sang the National Anthem ahead of Super Bowl LII back in February -- to perform at halftime early on, but because the negotiations took so long, both women decided to move on.
Meanwhile, when Maroon 5 frontman Adam Levine was asked about performing at next year's Super Bowl late last month, he cryptically told Variety, "I’m still formulating a lot of things."
