Adele will say hello from the other side in front of millions of people at next year’s Super Bowl Halftime Show.
The NFL is reportedly eyeing the 25 singer for the spectacle.
“I can reveal American football bosses are desperately trying to land Adele for what is one of the world’s most-watched sporting events,” The Sun reports.
An NFL source said: “There is nobody bigger in the world than Adele right now and organisers 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.”
They added: “It’s Adele’s nerves that are the issue — it hasn’t been an easy sell.”
Hits Daily Double mentions the move is highly appealing for Sony because of the exposure she’d get in the U.S., “though manager Jonathan Dickins is notoriously incredibly picky over the gigs Adele accepts.”
OneRepublic is rumored to join her on stage. Frontman Ryan Tedder co-wrote and produced “Remedy” off 25.
There were also rumors of JLo and Britney Spears taking over the halftime slot, but if Adele can get her anxiety under control she’d certainly snag it.
Which leads us to wonder… is Adele’s catalogue appropriate for the Super Bowl?
