NFL-Maroon 5 to play 2019 Super Bowl halftime show
U.S. media reported in October that Pop superstar Rihanna declined an offer to headline the show because she supported former NFL quarterback Colin Kaepernick and his protest against racial injustice.
Previous performers have included Beyonce, Lady Gaga, Katy Perry, Madonna, Bruce Springsteen and Prince.
The 2018 Super Bowl when Justin Timberlake performed at halftime was watched by a television audience of 103 million, the biggest by far for any TV event in the United States.
CBS will broadcast the Super Bowl in 2019. Levine is a judge on the NBC talent show "The Voice". (Reporting by Rory Carroll, editing by Ed Osmond)
