Maroon 5, Travis Scott and Big Boi will be performing during the Super Bowl LIII halftime show on Feb. 3.

The NFL announced the performers on Twitter Sunday.

Maroon 5 will be the headlining performance while Travis Scott and Big Boi are guest performers.

Prior to deciding on the pop and hip-hop performers, the NFL had trouble finding artists to agree to perform. Dozens of artists including Rihanna turned down the gig to stand in solidarity with former NFL quarterback Colin Kaepernick according to WABE.

Super Bowl LIII will be in the Mercedes-Benz Stadium in Atlanta.
