Next season’s Super Bowl halftime performer could be an artist who has already performed the halftime show in the past.

According to the New York Daily News, the NFL has had discussions with Britney Spears about performing during the halftime of Super Bowl LII on Feb. 4 at U.S. Bank Stadium in Minneapolis, Minnesota.

Spears performed alongside NSYNC, Mary J. Blidge, Nelly and Aerosmith at Super Bowl XXXV between the Baltimore Ravens and the New York Giants in 2001.

An insider told the Daily News that Spears wants to be the headliner of the Super Bowl halftime show, and the package could include other notable performers.

“Britney has made it clear to her team that it is a dream to perform at a Super Bowl,” the insider said. “She has the hits package and appeal to be a headliner.”

Spears was asked about her desire to perform at the halftime show last year during an interview on BBC 1 Radio, and she said she would “probably do that” if offered the chance.

Spears is still a recognizable household name, though her biggest hits are nearly two decades old. It’s likely Spears will enlist other performers to join her on stage during the 12-minute performance.
