LOS ANGELES — Adele dashed hopes that she will perform at the next Super Bowl.

At a concert in Los Angeles on Saturday night, Adele told her fans that the NFL asked her to be a part of Super Bowl LI in Houston on February 5, 2017 — but she declined.

“Come, on. That show is not about music, and I don’t dance or anything like that. They were really kind, they did ask me, but I did say no,” she said Saturday, eliciting boos from the audience.

The singer was responding to rumors that she would headline the Super Bowl’s half time performance, which has been taken on by a long list of musical legends — like BeyoncĂ©, Madonna, Bruce Springsteen and Prince.

But the shows are known for being upbeat and high-energy, while Adele’s is known for her soulful ballads.

“I know I’m not BeyoncĂ©, I can’t dance or anything like that,” Adele said.

The NFL could not immediately be immediately reached for comment.
