Maroon 5 surprises with 'Harder to Breathe' open

  • Here's How Much Maroon 5 Is Getting Paid to Perform at the 2019 Super Bowl

There were guest appearances from Travis Scott, Big Boi and a gospel choir, but nothing was more polarising than frontman Adam Levine's dancing.

The Super Bowl 53 halftime show began with a fireworks display going off around a Miami Marlins Maroon 5 "M" at midfield, presumably waking up the thousands in attendance who had been given a full dose of Ambien by the Patriots and Rams.

Brimming with countless hit songs, Maroon 5 had a plethora of tracks to choose from when determining their set list.

Maroon 5's lead vocalist, Adam Levine, removed his shirt, which led viewers to remember the reaction to Janet Jackson and "Nipplegate" 15 years ago.

In a possible attempt to add some spice to the vanilla display, Levine progressively stripped, from a long black coat, to a tracksuit, to a tank top and finally to a bare chest, as he brought proceedings to an end with Sugar and Moves Like Jagger.

And worse, its neighbouring glaciers would raise sea levels an additional eight feet if all the ice was lost. This has made the melt rate on this part of the glacier unsettlingly high, the researchers said.

Confused about the brief "SpongeBob" scene that served as an intro into Scott's "Sicko Mode"?

Adam Levine, Big Boi, and Sleepy Brown.

Mercedes-Benz Stadium tweeted out a GIF from the "Band Geeks" episode of SpongeBob in December, and Maroon 5 even briefly put SpongeBob into their preview video last month. "I know it must sound like a privilege ass sacrifice but it's all i got", in an Instagram caption in October.

The 2004 incident was dubbed "Nipplegate" by the media and left Jackson and Timberlake forced to issue apologies while CBS - the network that aired the Super Bowl performance that year - was punished by the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) with a hefty fine of US$550,000 (RM 2.25 million) for indecency. Maroon 5 performed the very awful hit "Girls Like You", making the already bad song sound worse by mixing in a gospel choir, led by a singer whose voice would make you walk out of church (sorry, girl). "But there's a man who sacrificed his job for us, so we got to stand behind him", Cardi B said of her decision to not to perform.

Quarterback Colin Kaepernick (7) and Eric Reid (35), both with the San Francisco 49ers at the time, kneel during the American national anthem before a game in 2016. 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". Maroon 5 opened the show with a "Songs About Jane" deep cut, so a lot of people probably lost plenty of money.
