Football season is upon us and there’s still no halftime performer scheduled for the upcoming Super Bowl. The NFL reportedly reached out to Adele about the opportunity, which they have denied, but she declined saying, “That show is not about music.” Fans are now doing their best to get the league’s attention to make Kanye West the choice to perform in Houston next year.
The hashtag #KanyeWestForSuperbowl51 has taken off thanks to TeamKanyeDaily on social media. There is even a petition for Kanye to perform nearing 1,300 signatures on change.org. Take a look at a few of the best tweets below.

Yeezy puts on a stellar performance in any environment to many diverse audiences, and you know he would take advantage of the big stage in Houston. His music catalogue is unprecedented in hip-hop, he has a number of hits he could perform as the Chicago rapper recently passed the great Michael Jackson on the top 40 hits list.
‘Ye would be coming off his Saint Pablo Tour, and may have a new project he would want to promote.
It’s time to let hip-hop in the door as the headliner for the Pepsi halftime show, let Kanye tear the stage up. We’ve seen in recent performances the NFL has tried to appeal to different audiences by synchronizing artists from different genres. So pairing Yeezy with another artist could work.
Kanye is one of the most polarizing artists in the world. As we see time to time ‘Ye could explode at any moment or go on one of his streams of consciousness (rants), so the NFL’s hesitancy is understandable, as he would turn off some of the audience.
You cannot deny his talent and creative ability though, the guy is a genius. It is the perfect time for a Kanye West halftime performance.
Listen to the kids bro!
