Maroon 5's Super Bowl performance: Adam Levine's torso can't save tedious affair

Maroon 5 Rocks Super Bowl 2019 Halftime Show With Travis Scott and Big Boi

Maroon 5 is headlining the Pepsi Super Bowl LIII Halftime Show, which was a polarizing choice among fans for multiple reasons.

While the Patriots and the Rams were locked up at 3 points to 0, many looked to the halftime show like Marie Kondo looks to well-folded linen: They were searching for something to bring them joy.

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.

One of the female singers let it rip and blew Levine and everyone else off the stage in that fine moment.

On Twitter one person wrote: "The only upsetting thing about the Super Bowl was that Travis Scott only performed one song".

It also was followed by a good segment with the arrival of Big Boi from Outkast in a Cadillac convertible, wearing a fur coat, to perform a fast-rapped short segment of its hit "The Way You Move".

Another tweeted: "It's really sad that Adam Levine had to stoop so low to take his shirt off to get great reviews instead of his actual singing talent".

Meanwhile, some viewers were at least happy that the Maroon 5 show made room for both Big Boi and Travis Scott to perform.

The Superbowl halftime show is a legacy gig for musicians, a 10 minute all-in spectacle where they have the chance to grab the whole world's attention.

The replies section was quickly flooded by fans calling it one of the worst half-time performances in Super Bowl history.

The Atlantic - "Maroon 5's halftime show felt created to be forgotten".

But rumoured surprise guest Christina Aguilera was a no-show, despite Maroon 5 finishing with their duet Moves Like Jagger. 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.

The game is scheduled to begin at 6:30 p.m. EST.

It's safe to say that they'll still be making millions thanks to the Super Bowl promotion.
