TORONTO - The Canadian Football League is offering a diverse mix of performers for the halftime show of the 100th Grey Cup.
Teen heart-throb Justin Bieber, singer-songwriter Gordon Lightfoot, pop-rock group Marianas Trench and pop star Carly Rae Jepsen will perform at halftime of the league's championship game Nov. 25 at Rogers Centre, the CFL announced Saturday.
Country artist Johnny Reid and rocker Burton Cummings will headline a special kickoff show before the game.
"We are absolutely thrilled to unveil an all-Canadian, all-star lineup that features the biggest pop star in the world, the woman who gave us one of the biggest songs ever, one of the hottest young bands in the country, an iconic balladeer, a rock and roll legend, and one of this country's leading entertainers," CFL commissioner Mark Cohon said in a release.
"This array of stars will command a huge and diverse audience, entertaining our most loyal fans and attracting new ones to our game's greatest showcase. It spans genres and generations. And it's quintessentially Canadian and undoubtedly world class, at the same time."
Nickelback played last year's Grey Cup halftime show in Vancouver.
