ABC NEWS — By Catherine Thorbecke, ABC News - The NFL announced Sunday that musical acts Maroon 5, Travis Scott and rapper Big Boi will take the stage during this year’s Super Bowl halftime show.

The announcement put an end to months of speculation over who would perform during Super Bowl LIII, as the football league has caused controversy -- and allegedly alienated potential performers -- over its handling of former player Colin Kaepernick.
