The NFL season is back, baybeh! And now that we’re settling in to Week 2, with all the fanfare of the season’s kickoff dying down, attention is now turning to the real great unanswered question of Season 2016: Just who in the hell is gonna perform at the Super Bowl Halftime Show in February?
“We have had conversations with several fantastic artists about the Pepsi Super Bowl Halftime Show. However, at this point we do not have a final decision. We’re happy there is so much excitement about the show.”

This, however, is pretty typical of the notoriously control-obsessed NFL, who would likely hold off on “officially” confirming anything until a time that suits them best; likely during a primetime broadcast on Monday Night Football. This is a familiar pattern that’s been followed time and time again by the league when it comes to Super Bowl show speculation.
