Super Bowl halftime show performers

Colin Kaepernick

Marooon 5 managed to avoid political preaching during its Super Bowl LIII halftime show - but the band also forgot to be entertaining.

There is no band more consistently, doggedly embarrassing in America than Maroon 5.

Kaepernick's subsequent treatment by the National Football League led to many A-list acts such as Jay-Z, Rihanna and Cardi B turning down the halftime-performance spot this year. He followed it up with "The Way You Move" with collaborator Sleepy Brown as Maroon 5 danced along with them for a soothing, soulful experience.

Adam Levine's group Maroon 5 headlined the Super Bowl 2019 halftime show at the Mercedes-Benz stadium in Atlanta.

"No one thought about it more than I did", Levine said in a pre-Bowl interview with Entertainment Tonight.

The show included everything from a shirtless Adam Levine to Big Boi arriving in a big fur coat to Scott being introduced by Squidward of SpongeBob SquarePants. Never failing to entertain, the 2019 show brought with it a whole lot to unpack, and what better way to make sense of it all than with a meme or two?

According to Timberlake, who spoke ahead of his performance at the 2018 Super Bowl, both he and Jackson have made amends since then.

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

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".

Atlanta-born songstress Gladys Knight, who was also put on the defensive for accepting an invitation to sing, belted out the Star-Spangled Banner before kickoff between the Los Angeles Rams and New England Patriots.

The game is scheduled to begin at 6:30 p.m. EST. He started the show with a jacket on; he ended the show topless. Vocal criticism of their choice has come from other celebrities like comedian Amy Schumer, who didn't shy away from calling out the band, writing "I think it would be cool if @maroon5 backed out of super bowl like @badgalriri Did".
