After Maroon 5 put on their halftime show at the Super Bowl, many were left saying it was dull. 

While there was nothing really bad about their performance as Adam Levine does have perfect pitch and it was a totally fine performance, it lacked the "wow" factor that we've come to expect from a halftime show.

Sure he took his shirt off and brought out Travis Scott and Outkast, but Lady Gaga jumped from the roof. Katy Perry had left shark. Beyonce caused a blackout. Bruno Mars never stopped dancing.

So what do you do when the Super Bowl heads to a city like Miami in 2020 where over-the-top is expected for a simple trip to the grocery store?

You bring in a pop superstar who delivers over-the-top performances night after night on tour. 

You bring in Taylor Swift.

Hear me out on this one. 

She may not be the first person you think of when you think of Miami, but she certainly could fit the bill and rise up to the expectations of the Miami mindset.

Everything from costumes, to set design, to stadium effects, to dancers is what Taylor does on her tours. Don't believe me? Watch her Reputation Netflix special and you'll get it.

Taylor may be a full-on pop star in 2019, but just 10 years ago, Taylor Swift was a country princess who had Nashville's harshest critics in the palm of her hand.

She dances the fine line of country and pop even after releasing 2-full pop albums. Pop music has fully embraced her and country music would take her back in a heartbeat.

She has a decade and a half long career with countless hits that the crowds would know every word to. 

And the special guests she could bring out would make it THAT much bigger.

Taylor has collaborated with artists like Tim McGraw, Ed Sheeran, Future, Sugarland, Kendrick Lamar, and more. 

She checks off every single box and she did say, we'd have a new album from her by her 30th birthday which happens to be this December, so maybe even new music just in time for the Super Bowl.

Taylor is arguably one of the biggest stars on the planet today and her appeal would definitely be a draw for the game's viewership. 

So, I'm stating my case now. 

Taylor 2020.
