Adam Levine Addresses Critics and Fans After Super Bowl Halftime Show

Ben's Chili Bowl head chef gives Super Bowl food advice Here's How Much Maroon 5 Is Getting Paid to Perform at the 2019 Super Bowl

Maroon 5 was Super Bowl 53's halftime performers, along with Big Boi and Travis Scott, and the internet had some thoughts.

A drumline and a gospel choir joined the band for a rendition of "Girls Like You" just before Big Boi rolled in to sing parts of his song "Kryptonite", before jumping in with Levine for parts of OutKast's "The Way You Move".

Maroon 5's Adam Levine performs at the halftime show of the 2019 Super Bowl. During the show, a brief clip from that scene was shown and then, when fire started raining down in the SpongeBob clip, special effects made it look like a fireball was about to hit the stadium.

The Jazz point guard busted out the acoustic guitar and had the party singing a classic from Maroon 5 in "She Will Be Loved".

It was, according to those who watched it at the time, "the worst" Superbowl halftime performance in the history of the Superbowl.

The halftime show yesterday did have a short reference, and it was a nod to "Sweet Victory". "I got to sacrifice a lot of money to perform". The most-talked-about moment was when the lead singer, Adam Levine, took off his t-shirt to sing "Moves Like Jagger". The Maroon 5 front - man was the main highlight of the show who won the audience's heart with his electrifying performance.

A third commentator said: "Absolutely screaming that Big Boi and Travis Scott were literally on stage for five seconds".

Kaepernick is known for protesting racial injustice in 2016, by taking a knee during the national anthem.

Following the tragic passing of SpongeBob creator Stephen Hillenburg, more than one million fans signed a petition for "Sweet Victory" from the Bubble Bowl episode, "Band Geeks", to be played in his honour.

Scott only got a few minutes onstage solo, and for most of it, people on social media were very distracted by this fashion choice. The act of protest was later taken up by a number of players across the league. Not only is the title fitting for the occasion and says it all, but the chorus ("Welcome to Atlanta, where the players play") couldn't have been any more ideal and a great save for this otherwise awkward situation.

Controversy and pay aside, there's still a major upside for the artists to performing at the Super Bowl. I want to thank everyone for the support and especially Change.org, this wouldn't have been possible without their platform.
