ESPN has announced the halftime entertainment for the College Football National Championship.
Grammy Award-winning band Imagine Dragons will perform at halftime live from Treasure Island at San Francisco Bay. Network officials made the announcement Monday. Fans with passes to Treasure Island will get in to the show for free. A trailer for the band’s appearance is streaming online now here.
According to a news release from ESPN, the band is scheduled to perform a handful of songs from its most recent album Origins. The band’s performance is just one part of a season-long partnership between ESPN, Interscope Records and Universal Music Group Nashville.That partnership also saw ESPN feature Imagine Dragons’ hit song ‘Natural’ as ESPN’s college football anthem.
This is the second year that ESPN has partnered with Interscope Records for its college football broadcasts. The network featured Kendrick Lamar as the halftime headliner for last year’s College Football Championship. Alabama defeated Georgia in overtime in that game, which was watched by 29.9 million viewers, making it the second most watched cable presentation ever.
