  • Less than 50 days until the Super Bowl and organizers are reportedly struggling to find stars for the big halftime show.  Channel 2 Action News told you that Maroon Five will headline the half time show in February. However, Variety Magazine reports the band is having problems finding featured musical guests for their performance.  Among those considering the appearance are Cardi B, who is featured on the Maroon 5 hit “Girls Like You,” which spent seven weeks at No. 1 over the fall, Variety reports. The rapper is also scheduled to appear at the Grammy Awards on Feb. 10. Andre Benjamin, AKA Andre 3000 of beloved local act Outkast, is under consideration too. Others — like Mary J. Blige — had been approached, but faced scheduling conflicts. Still more, like Usher, Lauryn Hill and Nicki Minaj -- who performed at the 2012 Super Bowl with Madonna -- are names rumored to be in the mix, according to Variety. Many musicians are protesting the NFL’s stance toward Colin Kaepernick, and other players' right to protest. The Super Bowl halftime show does not pay, Variety explains, which makes it “even trickier to book an A-list act.” Variety’s Jem Aswad and Shirley Halperin add, “While the viewing audience is undoubtedly enormous, the criticism over aligning with the NFL promises to ring as loudly.”
  • Thousands of people are packed in downtown Atlanta to celebrate Atlanta United's championship win.  An open-top bus parade is traveling down Baker Street, Marietta Street, and Andrew Young International Boulevard and will end with a pep rally at the Home Depot Backyard at Mercedes-Benz Stadium. Eight-year-old Carlos Garcia and his brother, 10-year-old David Garcia, begged their mom to drive them downtown for all the festivities. “I said mom I want to come down to the stadium because they won their first championship,” Carlos tells WSB Radio.  When asked what is was like to watch the championship game, his brother David, replies, “Exciting!”  The boys’ mother Alejandra, who drove here from Jonesboro, bought her kids Atlanta United hats and t-shirts at Dick’s Sporting Goods. She tells WSB Radio, “Well my kids brought me here, I’m a soccer fanatic too, we love Atlanta United.”  All of the Atlanta United players, coaches, owner Arthur Blank, Atlanta mayor Keisha Lance Bottoms and governor Nathan Deal will be in attendance. The last time Atlanta celebrated a major sports championship was the Braves in 1995. Blake, an Atlanta United Fan whose had season tickets, is playing hooky from work, so he can go to the parade and ceremony today. “I’m pretty ecstatic, I’m pretty pumped about it.”
