Adele wasn't interested in saying "Hello" to the National Football League.

The decorated singer and songwriter told a Los Angeles crowd on Saturday that she turned down an offer to participate in the Super Bowl LI halftime show. The halftime concert -- as well as the game -- will be broadcast from Houston on Feb. 5.

"First of all, I'm not doing the Super Bowl," the 28-year-old Adele told the crowd at the Staples Center, per Variety.com. "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 said no."

Bruno Mars, Beyonce and Coldplay put on a show earlier this year as a whopping 115.5 million viewers in the United States tuned in. Michael Jackson, Paul McCartney, Prince and the Rolling Stones have also participated at the NFL's signature event.

"I'm sorry, but maybe next time," Adele told the crowd on Saturday. "I'll put out a dance album next time. Maybe I'll do it then."
