The Super Bowl halftime show is notoriously one of the biggest spectacles on the planet, and despite Super Bowl LI being more than six months away, rumors are already swirling about which superstar could be taking on the world famous slot in 2017.
A number of huge names have been banded about as to who could follow in the footsteps of Coldplay, Beyoncé, and Bruno Mars, who stole the show last year, but sources are now revealing that British superstar Adele is currently at the top of the NFL's list of stars for Super Bowl LI.
According to a new report by the Sun, the NFL are "desperate" to get Adele to sign on the dotted line to perform during the halftime show in 2017 in Houston, Texas, after an NFL insider admitted that the federation is doing everything they can to get Adele to agree to a Super Bowl performance.
"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," the Super Bowl source told the site.
Adele has yet to comment on the swirling Super Bowl LI reports, though it's thought that NFL executives are worried that she could potentially turn down the halftime offer due to nerves.
"It's Adele's nerves that are the issue," the site's source admitted, adding that attempting to persuade Adele to take her talent to the Super Bowl stage "hasn't been an easy sell."
Adele has been vocal about her struggle with nerves in the past, even telling concert goers during her headlining slot at Glastonbury festival that she'd put off appearing at the iconic event for years because she was "too scared" to take to the stage, according to the Belfast Telegraph.
