Maroon 5 criticized for Super Bowl performance seen as ‘boring’ and ‘safe’

The Super Bowl halftime show (SBHTS) is even more talked about and is an extravagant affair with performances from top artists.

Maroon 5 had faced some backlash following their decision to headline the halftime show. In fact, people on Twitter are making it known that they wish Spongebob was the headliner instead of Maroon 5, who also performed with with Scott and later Big Boi.

While he performed 'Sweet Victory, ' since his moment was pretty short, the fans were not entirely satisfied. However, prior to the event, there were reports that big-name artists like Jay-Z and Rihanna had turned down performing, taking a stand in solidarity with former National Football League quarterback Colin Kaepernick to highlight social justice issues. They went into "This Love" immediately after - complete with a guitar solo from frontman Adam Levine.

The song "Sweet Victory" comes from one of the most iconic episodes of "SpongeBob SquarePants".

While the New England Patriots may have taken home the victory from the 2019 Super Bowl, Twitter emerged as the real victor of Super Bowl Sunday, thanks to the field day they had with this year's halftime show.

You don't have to go all the way, just pledging to take a more plant-based approach is enough for Bey and Jay. But is this for real? Bey shared the contest via an Instagram post to her more than 123 million followers.

Next up was 50 percent of Atlanta's own OutKast, when Big Boi rolled in (in a Cadillac no less!) for his own brief stint on the microphone. He added: "I'm not in the right profession if I can't handle a little bit of controversy". Maroon 5's songs will skyrocket up the charts on iTunes, Spotify, Apple Music and more following their Super Bowl performance.

The group ran through its biggest hits, including "Girls Like You" and "She Will Be Loved" - while lead singer Adam Levine barely moved on stage and eventually worked his way to a shirtless performance.

While T-Mobile may have taken the right route, major brands or social media pages have always been known to take organic content shared by unknown creators and reappropriate them without permission or credit.

"I spoke to many people, most importantly though, I silenced all the noise and listened to myself, and made my decision about how I felt", he said.

Michael Powell, the Chair of the Federal Communications Commission (FCC), was called before the Senate and said that the incident represented "a new low for prime time television".
