Adele Denies Super Bowl Performance Reports During Los Angeles Concert

Will the 'Hello' superstar do another U-turn though?

Adele has spoken out to deny reports that she’s set to follow in the footsteps of Beyonce and Madonna by performing at the Super Bowl halftime show.

Last week, rumours that the ‘When We Were Young’ superstar was set to take on the mammoth task of performing at 2017’s show began circulating, but Adele has now had her say.

Speaking on stage in Los Angeles over the weekend, she told the audience: “First of all, I’m not doing the Super Bowl. I mean, come on, that show is not about music.

“I don’t really - I can’t dance or anything like that.”

However, we’re not sure whether to take Adele’s words as final on this one.

Remember when she insisted that she’d never perform Glastonbury? And then headlined this year’s festival? Our point exactly.

If Adele does do a u-turn on her decision, she’ll be joining an elite group of stars who have wowed sports and music fans by performing the halftime show.

This year, the responsibility was given to Coldplay, who risked being upstaged by inviting Beyonce to perform a rendition of her single ‘Formation’ midway through their set.
