Fans want to have a little more say in the 2020 Super Bowl halftime show.
Following Maroon 5's performance at the 2019 game, which has been panned nationwide by fans and critics alike, fans are unwilling to sit back and watch the NFL run themselves into the ground.
The Super Bowl suffered a lot of hiccups in finding its halftime show acts.
After the NFL's handling of Colin Kaepernick's protest during the National Anthem, more than five artists reportedly turned down the gig, including Rihanna, Cardi B and P!nk.
And Maroon 5's performance was...well, there's no other description for it:
a yikes festival.

So fans want to take control of the next halftime show to make sure we never go so wrong again.
The Super Bowl in 2020, which will be held in Miami, is already getting fans hyped up.
In fact, the Miami Super Bowl committee released a video for that very purpose.

And the main voice of the video is exactly who fans want at next year's halftime show.
A fan began a petition on Change.org to get Armando Christian Pérez, aka "Pitbull",
to perform next year.
"Our city is a melting pot of all different cultures, and Pitbull is the voice for that," said JP Gutierrez, who started the petition.
"I just think we deserve that."

@wsvn Yess also Daddy Yankee our miami Dade pride— Gaby (@Gaby)1549499326.0
Pitbull was born in Miami on Janury 15, 1981, to Cuban emigrant parents. He underwent a rather rough upbringing but now represents all of the art and culture of Miami proudly.
"I texted it to my group chat like, 'Hey, what if this happened?'" Gutierrez said, about creating the petition.
"I thought someone's probably going to have the idea to do this, so let me be the one to have the initiative to do it."
And his idea is definitely catching fire.

@LeJuan__James @NFL It’ll be Pitbull.— Krista M. Torralva (@Krista M. Torralva)1549245316.0
Pitbull himself has not commented on the choice yet, but if fans want him this much, it leaves the door open.
The show can only get better after this year's, after all.
