Multiple Grammy Award-winning singer Adele has revealed that she turned down an offer to perform at the 2017 Super Bowl half-time show.

The singer told an audience at her Los Angeles gig that she was asked to perform at the event.

"First of all, I'm not doing the Super Bowl," Adele said from the stage in a video posted on Twitter.

"I mean, come on, that show is not about music. And I don't really - I can't dance or anything like that. They were very kind, they did ask me, but I did say no.

"I'm sorry, but maybe next time."

Performers at previous half-time shows have included Beyonce, Madonna, and Prince.
