It was Maroon 5's first Super Bowl halftime show appearance, and they were joined on stage by rappers Travis Scott and Big Boi.

In the end, Adam Levine took a knee - sort of.

The performance also featured a cameo from Spongebob Squarepants before Travis Scott hit the stage to perform "Sicko Mode".

Atlanta native Big Boi then entered in a convertible, rocking a fur coat to perform "The Way You Move" with Levine singing the hook with Sleepy Brown.

Not unlike the Academy's inability to secure a viable host for the Oscars, the NFL's quest to nail down a halftime performer proved a surprisingly controversial affair.

Cardi B says she received an offer to perform at the Super Bowl, but struggled with the decision to turn down the lucrative opportunity in support of ex-NFL player Colin Kaepernick.

Maurizio Sarri: Maybe I Am Not Able To Motivate Players
He can grow a great deal over the next few weeks". "Conceding four goals is unacceptable, and we are very angry with that". Antonio Conte , Sarri's predecessor, also publicly questioned his players in his second season at Stamford Bridge .

Big Boi arrives in style in a convertible for the half-time show during Super Bowl LIII at Mercedes-Benz Stadium on February 3, 2019 in Atlanta, Georgia. "No one put more thought and love into this than I did".

Adam Levine has broken his silence after Maroon 5 chose to perform at the 2019 Super Bowl after months of protest. "I was expected a better show, dreadful".

The only positive thing about their performance is that Maroon 5 stayed true to themselves by singing their own hit songs, as opposed to covering songs by other artists (They learned from Justin Timberlake's mistake last year).

Following the halftime show, Twitter was filled with mixed reactions from spectators. In mid-January, Maroon 5 posted a video teasing their halftime performance, and fans noticed that it contained a brief clip of the titular sponge.

Amber Tablyn also scorned the "mediocre" band for playing at the Super Bowl after NFL quarterback Colin Kaepernick effectively lost his job for protesting the killings of black men by police by taking a knee during the USA national anthem. He's arguing that owners have conspired to keep him off any National Football League team since he became a free agent in 2017 because of his decision and the political firestorm it ignited.
