A day after Amy Schumer took credit on Instagram for the lack of performers willing to perform at halftime of the Super Bowl, it has been announced that Travis Scott will be joining Maroon 5’s Super Bowl halftime show.
A source confirmed to People that the 26-year-old rapper will be performing at the Super Bowl in February:
The 26-year-old rapper will perform at the event in Atlanta on Sunday, Feb. 3, a source confirms to PEOPLE. Reps for Maroon 5 and the NFL did not immediately return PEOPLE’s request for comment.
A source previously confirmed to PEOPLE in September that Maroon 5 would perform at the halftime show, but the NFL has yet to officially announce it, though they issued a statement.
“It’s a Super Bowl tradition to speculate about the performers for the Pepsi Halftime Show,” it read. “We are continuing to work with [longtime sponsor] Pepsi on our plans but do not have any announcements to make on what will be another epic show.”
I guess Amy isn’t as powerful as she thought she was. It is the halftime show of the Super Bowl after all, one of the the most viewed events of the entire year.
The controversy surrounding it will just get more people to to tune in. As the game gets closer there will be plenty of performers who want a little stage time.
