Let’s face it – Superbowl LIII was a massive let down across the board with a very low scoring game, 13-3, with the Patriots beating the Rams to take home the Vince Lombardi trophy.
But one thing that everyone, NFL fan or not, looks forward to is the halftime show and the reaction we wake up to afterwards.
Maroon 5 took to centre stage this year and called on Spongebob, Travis Scott and Big Boi as supports acts, but even that couldn’t save them from the thrashing they got on Twitter.
It is being called dull, boring and just plain by the users on twitter, with the performance lacking any sort of spark.
Adam Levine tried to salvage the show by ripping his shirt off during ‘Moves Like Jagger’, but that only made things worse.
Have a look:
I got them mooooves…

What’s the verdict?
Well, let twitter do the talking:
IF TWO ADAM LEVINE NIPPLES WERE APPROVED THEN SOMEONE OWES JANET JACKSON A BIG APOLOGY

Maroon 5 literally became Nickleback right before our eyes tonight.

Scottish football may be plagued by bitterness, incompetence, paranoia, hatred, a lack of transparency from officials and pettiness, but it will never sink low enough to let Maroon 5 perform at half-time in the Scottish Cup Final

They invited Adam Levine to the barbecue and it’s not going as planned. He brought the potato salad with raisins in it.

yeesh if this is what they came up with for Maroon 5 I don’t even want to know what Maroons 1 through 4 sounded like.

Hi there while you’re enjoying this mediocre Maroon 5 halftime please remember a football legend was blacklisted from this entire sport for merely putting his knee on the ground in protest of black people being murdered. Enjoy your pop music!
