The NFL announced the halftime show of Super Bowl LIII will be led by Maroon 5. They will be joined by rappers Travis Scott and Big Boi. Maroon 5 is a pop-rock band from Los Angeles known for "Harder to Breathe" and "Moves Like Jagger." Travis Scott is a rapper who grew up in Houston. His single "Sicko Mode" was a hit last year. Big Boi is a staple of Atlanta hip-hop, from his work in Outkast to his solo career.

Big Boi will join Maroon 5 for the halftime show at Super Bowl LIII, the NFL revealed Sunday.

Also known as Antwan Andre Patton, Big Boi is one half of the famed Atlanta-based hip hop duo Outkast.

It’s been known for a while that Maroon 5 would perform at Mercedes-Benz Stadium during the Feb. 3 game, but the accompanying acts have been up in the air.
