Rihanna, Coldplay and Katy Perry are the NFL’s three leading candidates to play the halftime show at next February’s Super Bowl, according to a new report.

The Wall Street Journal says the league has “narrowed down the list” to that group of potential performers, although an NFL spokesperson refused to comment.

Super Bowl XLIX — that’s Super Bowl 49, for the less Roman numeral-inclined — will be played in Glendale, Arizona on February 1, 2015.

Bruno Mars headlined this year’s halftime show, accompanied by Red Hot Chili Peppers.

One interesting note: The WSJ report claims the NFL wants next year’s halftime performer to pay to play — meaning they’d be required to give the league a portion of their touring income in exchange for the high-profile gig.

That detail has also not been confirmed.

Who would you most like to see play at next year’s Super Bowl — Rihanna, Coldplay or Katy Perry?
