Fans disappointed by Maroon 5 and Travis Scott's Super Bowl halftime show

Adam Levine

More than 100 million viewers watched Justin Timberlake's performance in Minneapolis past year, but there doesn't seem to be the same level of buzz for the 2019 halftime show.

Performing at the Super Bowl Halftime Show is a notoriously tricky gig for any musician, and Maroon 5 weren't helped by the bumpy run-up to their big moment.

Don't get me wrong: I grew up on Maroon 5's debut album Songs About Jane, a lovely collection of pop-rock earworms, and thankfully the band played beloved oldies like This Love and She Will Be Loved.

The Maroon 5 frontman also hinted at plans to honor those who feel like their voices aren't being heard.

In a possible attempt to add some spice to the vanilla display, Levine progressively stripped, from a long black coat, to a tracksuit, to a tank top and finally to a bare chest, as he brought proceedings to an end with Sugar and Moves Like Jagger. He shows off his full-body tattoos and abs so much that he even poked fun at this habit on "Saturday Night Live" in 2013 when, of course, he took off his shirt. The scene from the very beginning of the song, when the horns play, briefly was played before it started crossing over into Sicko Mode.

Last but not least there was Big Boi.

Wreckage of plane carrying missing Emiliano Sala found
On Wednesday, seat cushions believed to have been from the plane were recovered by French authorities, and the search continues. An official search operation for the plane was called off on January 24 but a privately funded search began yesterday morning.


Georgia native Big Boi, one half of the duo Outkast, received a hometown welcome, rolling up to the stage in a lowrider before jumping into Outkast's "The Way You Move".

"When we accepted the responsibility to perform at the SBHTS, I took out my pen and just wrote", he began.

Cardi B for Super Bowll LIV anyone?

Jackson's 2004 Super Bowl performance, which has been dubbed "Nipplegate", saw special guest Justin Timberlake rip off a piece of her clothing, thereby baring her nipple to the world.

Furthermore, many tweeted that they would have rather had Spongebob headline the show instead of Maroon 5! They have been surrounded by the controversy after some have boycotted the NFL over treatment of Colin Kaepernick, the former quarterback who protested racial injustice by kneeling during the national anthem. Maroon 5 opened the show with a "Songs About Jane" deep cut, so a lot of people probably lost plenty of money.
