Ahead Of Super Bowl Halftime Show Performance NFL Cancels Maroon 5's Press Conference

With epic past performances by artists like Prince, Beyoncé and Bruno Mars, the halftime show is a big reason to watch the Super Bowl for some viewers.

But what was once considered a coveted gig has more recently been tainted by controversy.

This year's halftime performers -- pop band Maroon 5, rappers Travis Scott and Big Boi -- have received some criticism for agreeing to perform, despite the NFL's stance toward former quarterback Colin Kaepernick's decision to kneel during the National Anthem.

Other artists, including Rihanna and Cardi B, reportedly turned down the gig in support of Kaepernick.

Perhaps in an effort to avoid critics, the NFL canceled a press conference with the musicians that had been scheduled for Thursday.

"Maroon 5 has been working hard on a Pepsi Super Bowl LIII Halftime Show that will meet and exceed the standards of this event," the NFL said in a statement Tuesday about the decision.

"As it is about music, the artists will let their show do the talking as they prepare to take the stage this Sunday.
