Super Bowl 2019 Halftime Show: Confirmed Performances by Maroon 5, Travis Scott and Big Boi

As the Los Angeles Chargers faced a blowout defeat by the New England Patriots Sunday, the National Football League announced the performance lineup for the upcoming Super Bowl LIII Halftime Show.

Taking to Twitter, the NFL announced Maroon 5 would be accompanied by Travis Scoot and Big Boi during the February 3 Halftime Show.

Prior to the official announcement, numerous A-list performers — Rihanna, Adele, Jay-Z, Pink and Cardi B — reportedly turned down the Super Bowl offer to support former 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick, according to a Hollywood Reporter report.

Before the agreement, Scott required the NFL to make a donation to an organization that fights for social justice, Billboard confirms. The chosen organization has not been disclosed at this time.

Despite the agreement, Scott's performance was received with its fair share of negativity, including from Black Panther's Michael B. Jordan, who told TMZ that his performance goes against what the rapper stands for.

Al Sharpton went so far as to call the 26-year-old rapper a hypocrite for his involvement with the NFL.

"I think anyone that goes into the halftime show is in effect directly violating those that want to raise the question that the NFL should come to terms with what they have done and continue to do to Colin Kaepernick and those that protest on criminal justice issues," Sharpton told TMZ.

"I think he should do what a lot of other major artists have done: say 'I'm not going to participate.' You can't fight against Jim Crow and then go sit in the back of the bus," the 64-year-old activist added.

The controversy with Kaepernick first began in 2016 when the quarterback knelt during the national anthem in protest of racial inequality and police brutality in the United States. He hasn't played professionally since March 2017, and seven months later, decided to file a grievance report against the league and its owners.

"Colin Kaepernick's goal has always been, and remains, to simply be treated fairly by the league he performed at the highest level for and to return to the football playing field," Kaepernick's attorney, Mark Geragos said in a statement published by ESPN.

Kaepernick recently posted to Twitter a poll published by Bleacher Report saying that 95 percent of NFL players surveyed agreed the 31-year-old belonged back in the NFL.

"The Athletic polled 85 defensive players from 25 different NFL teams, and 95 percent of them said they feel Kaepernick belongs on an NFL squad," the report said. "Of the 85 players who voted, only two said he should not be on an NFL roster, and two responded by saying, 'No comment.'"
