Super Bowl Half Time Show 2019: List of Performers

As has been the tradition of the NFL Super Bowls, the Super Bowl Half Time Show 2019 musical event has its official headliner and special guests. As Justin Timberlake was the headline performer at the Super Bowl 2018 half time show, Maroon 5 was picked as the headline performer for the Super Bowl Half Time show 2019. The pop-rock band was selected after the show’s organizers underwent an unfamiliar challenge with a good number of star artists being unwilling to perform in the show. According to reports, music icons like Rihanna and Cardi B were part of those who refused to perform at the Super Bowl Half Time Show 2019. Their refusal to perform was in support of Colin Kaepernick, the controversial and star quarterback who is reportedly in a dispute with the NFL for refusing to stand for the U.S national anthem in his protest at police brutality against racial minorities.
