OneRepublic Will Play Grey Cup Halftime Show

OneRepublic has been announced as this year’s Grey Cup Halftime Show headliners. However, some football fans are questioning the CFL’s decision to go with an American band rather than a Canadian one.

It’s the third consecutive year that the league has gone with a performer from south of the border.

“OneRepublic is one of the biggest bands in the world — they have played for millions of fans internationally and we are thrilled to have them at this year’s Grey Cup in Toronto,” said Christina Litz, the CFL’s senior vice-president of marketing and content, to The Hamilton Spectator.

OneRepublic has released a total of three albums, with their fourth, Oh My My, coming out in October.

The Grey Cup takes place on November 27th at Toronto’s BMO Field.
