Adele Reportedly A Possible Headliner For Super Bowl LI Halftime Show

Adele. She sold bestselling albums. She won an Oscar. And now she might be the main performer in the Super Bowl LI halftime show. Yes, next year could be the Adele Super Bowl extravaganza.

It's just a rumor at this point, though.

If this ends up happening, she'll join a star-studded list of past Super Bowl performers, including Michael Jackson, Prince and the Rolling Stones.

According to The Sun, the artist and the NFL have already been discussing the possibility. The report claims:

“There is nobody bigger in the world than Adele right now and organizers are doing absolutely everything they can to try to persuade her to sign up. She’s sold out every date on her tour, everyone wants a piece of her and they know they can bank on her bringing in the viewers.”

Last year, more than 115 million U.S. viewers tuned in to the Super Bowl Halftime Show, which featured Coldplay, Beyonce and Bruno Mars. Further, that's four million more than the game itself - which holds the record of third most-watched game in US television history. Thus, the pick for the halftime performance can have a huge impact on the ratings. According to music website Pigeons and Planesthe NFL might offer Ryan Tedder of OneRepublic a deal to perform with the award-winning singer.

Ultimately, the league hopes that the additional singer will boost Adele's confidence on the stage.

Nevertheless, Super Bowl LI is February 5, 2017 at NRG Stadium in Houston, Texas.
