Adam Levine is going to the Super Bowl!

Twitter users soundly criticized the news that pop band Maroon 5 will perform Super Bowl LIII's halftime show in Atlanta, with many asking why a popular rap artist wasn't chosen, since that's the city's most popular musical genre. This follows an early report from Us Weekly, where a source told the publication the "offer has been extended and they've pretty much accepted".

In contrast to FIFA's prize, the Ballon d'Or victor is determined by votes from journalists, and Griezmann described the prize as more prestigious.

An NFL spokesperson refused to confirm or deny whether Maroon 5 will headline the Super Browl LIII halftime show. They have some big shoes to fill. Instead, the National Football League has gravitated toward more pop music-centric artists for its most recent Super Bowls, with the likes of Justin Timberlake, Lady Gaga, Coldplay, Katy Perry, Bruno Mars, and Beyoncé having all taken the stage in recent years. The last time a band was tapped to play the Super Bowl, it was Coldplay, who happened to bring out Bruno Mars and a just a singer named Beyonce. Who knows, perhaps Cardi B will join them for a guest appearance to perform the summer smash hit "I Like It, ". That city has a rich musical heritage, including being home to an fantastic number of hip-hop artists. "Moves Like Jagger" shook things up in 2011.

The point is, Maroon 5 is blah and boring and not very Atlanta.
