Earlier this week, news broke that Adele turned down the NFL's request to have her perform at the Super Bowl LI halftime show in Houston in February, 2017. Shortly after word got out, the NFL and Pepsi released an official statement explaining that they never made an official offer to Adele despite ongoing conversations. This made it sound like the league was trying to save face after being denied by Adele. It also means that there's an opening for one of the most-watched concerts in the world.

Who will the NFL choose? Well, we likely won't find out for months, but we have some thoughts on who they should pick.
