Two of the world's biggest popstars have declined the offer to perform at the Super Bowl halftime show, one of the most watched sporting events in US television.

Taylor Swift was approached to headline the huge gig, but turned it down. As did her friend and former collaborator Ed Sheeran.

While Taylor didn't give specific reasons for why she turned the event though, many are assuming it's because she's simply too busy!

The popstar is currently on her 'Eras' tour which is spanning nearly two years. Right now she's touring different cities around the States and will come across this side of the Atlantic in 2024.

Ed Sheeran meanwhile doesn't think he has the "pizzazz" to pull off a Superbowl Halftime performance.

“I think that would be the only way that I would do it is if I was joining someone else."

“I don’t have pizzazz. Like, all of these amazing performers — I’m just not that. I’m not gonna have dancers on stage. I’m not gonna have fireworks and blah blah.”

“I just can’t, that’s not me. I don’t think that anyone wants to see me do the Super Bowl either."

Ah don't doubt yourself too much Ed!

So who do we think will be headlining the Superbowl Halftime Show in 2024? Our bet is Harry Styles but leave a comment with your guess on our social media!
