Adele Snubs Super Bowl Half-Time Show

The mega star admitted she won’t take on the biggest event US soil has to offer because she “can’t dance”.

Adele, 28, is touring the US and revealed to her fans at the Staples Center in Los Angeles on Saturday that she rejected the chance to perform at Houston’s NRG Stadium in Texas on February 5, 2017 because the show is more about shaking your booty than it is about singing.

Adele said: “First of all, I’m not doing the Super Bowl. I mean, come on, that show is not about music. And I don’t really- I can’t dance or anything like that. They were very kind, they did ask me, but I said no.”

If she had accepted the invitation, Adele would have followed Coldplay and their spectacular mash-up show during which they were joined by US stars Beyoncé and Bruno Mars.

Their 12-minute medley saw Beynocé march around the field with a team of dancers that sported matching outfits and afros, whilst Chris Martin and Bruno belted out hits from centre stage

But, organisers were keen to sign Adele up to headline next year’s extravaganza and believed she had enough star power to do it alone, with a source telling The Sun newspaper: “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.

"She’s sold out every date on her tour, everyone wants a piece of her and they know they can bank on her bringing in the viewers.”

Before the game in February, Lady Gaga also performed a classic version of the national anthem, accompanied by a piano and dressed in a red suit with matching eye shadow, in tribute to David Bowie.

We understand her reasons, but we hope Adele has a change of heart like she did when she changed her mind about performing at Glastonbury. We’re behind you, girl!
