List Rules Vote up the acts you would most like to see perform during Super Bowl Half Time. No repeat performers.

Musical acts Maroon 5, Travis Scott, and Big Bio are the most recent performers to agree to tackle the Super Bowl halftime show in 2019. The list of Super Bowl halftime performers of years past includes an illustrious list of musicians including Beyonce, Bruce Springsteen, and Justin Timberlake. But each year as the search for new halftime performers for the Super Bowl gets underway, we can't be reminded of who haven't played the Super Bowl yet but should.

Here you'll get a chance to let the world know your dream choices for Super Bowl halftime performers. Which musical acts would you love to see perform in the next Super Bowl halftime show? Do you want Ariana Grande to light up the stage or are you feeling like well-established stars like Dolly Parton, Eminem, or Elton John should finally have a shot at the Super Bowl? It can be surprising who hasn't played the Super Bowl yet, it feels like Kanye and Justin Beiber should have taken the stage by now.

Cast your vote for your would-be half time favorites and see how they stack up against other people's picks for Super Bowls to come and add any performers you think we missed!
