London: Boy band One Direction will reportedly join the line-up to play at Super Bowl half-time show with a "farewell" performance.
Singer Bruno Mars was first linked to the coveted spot, but the "Night Changes" hitmakers could play their last show before their extended hiatus next year, reported Daily Mirror.
"NFL bosses want a superstar line-up and One Direction are very much in the mix. They want a pop and rock mash-up and it is thought that Coldplay and Bruno Mars are in talks too. They want a one-off show that will be remembered and garner the greatest audience figures ever.
"Obviously the 12-minute half-time show will be worth millions in revenue, sales and downloads too. With the band finishing it would be the ultimate way for the group to say farewell to their fans," a source said.
Earlier, band member Liam Payne had said the group will work together again after their break.
"I realise now this is the time to start branching out and exploring. This won't last forever, and there will be a point when we will break off and do our own things, but... We will work together again."
