A little more than a month after learning that Bruno Mars could be returning as next year's Super Bowl halftime show star, word is circulating that it might actually be Maroon 5 taking the stage for Super Bowl L in Santa Clara, Calif. on Feb. 7, 2016.

E! News hears that the NFL and Adam Levine's troupe "have had extensive talks about performing." A rep for Maroon 5 did not respond to Fuse's request for comment.

Entertainment Weekly and Billboard's sources about the Bruno Mars news also mentioned that he'd been asked to "curate" the halftime show, which could jibe with the Maroon 5 news. Until Katy Perry reeled in 121 million viewers in 2015, Mars' Super Bowl gig was the most-watched ever, with 115 million folks catching his Red Hot Chili Peppers–aided act in 2014.
