Actually, it wasn’t only Adam Levine but the rest of Maroon 5, Travis Scott and Big Boi(?). The tv was on but I watched a portion of the halftime only as I was entertaining some people at the same time who were over to watch the game. Today, lots of people are discussing the halftime show and saying it was really bad. For those of you who saw it, was it that bad? What did you think? And what is it that everyone’s talking about Sponge Bob? I don’t understand, can someone clarify?

My husband and I laughed our heads off at Adam Levine’s try-hard cool face during the show. Seriously, we couldn’t catch our breath just howling at how ridiculous he was. I wasn’t familiar with the other performers (we are very much classic rock & 80’s pop people and don’t venture much out of our bubble) but one of them had a Sponge Bob intro with a meteor? It was just as silly as it sounds.

I didn’t think it was bad per se, but it wasn’t phenomenal or anything. It was obviously thrown together last minute, but it’s Maroon 5 so it wasn’t like it was a train wreck. I’d say it was a pretty fitting halftime for the type of game it was.
ETA: I have no idea about Spongebob. I missed the first minute or two, so I missed the younger rapper entirely.

People were expecting to see the performance of the song “Sweet Victory” from a famous Spongebob episode in honor of the late Steven Hillenberg, creator of the show, who passed away. A petition was signed by many for them to honor him at the Superbow halftime and there were articles and rumors that it was going to happen. And it was very disappointing

I am shocked that he is a judge on the VOICE. He is not a good singer. It was bland. But I do recognize that there was a lot of controversy around the halftime show so they kind of had to be bland to not upset anyone.

He wasnt impressive, I was pretty shocked at how bad he was live. Travis Scott sucked, I like his album but he sucks live.
The best part was when Adam Livine took his shirt off, those tats are hot

I feel like it’s always hard to hear the lead singer in those halftime shows, but Adam was so quiet and initially out of breath that it was embarrassing. He seemed to recover and sounded decent in the second half, but did so many awkward dance moves and faces that it was just cringy. I thought it wasn’t horrific, but definitely not great. I honestly feel kind of bad for them for how mean people are being on social media. Like yeah Adam is rich and famous and married to a model, but it’s gotta hurt to read the hate.

I loved OutKast back in the day so I was happy to see Big Boi. I really wasn’t impressed by Adam Levine. He really can’t sing very well. There have been MUCH better half time shows.

i have seen maroon 5 probably about 7-8 times in the last 4 years and his voice was very off during his performance. They are talented musicians and I have never had a bad experience seeing maroon 5 live , In all honesty it sounded like Adam had a cold or something , he was definitely off. So he did not make a polital statement , Donated 500,000 to chairty and had to share a stage with some foul mouthed rappers and maroon 5 is getting the bad reviews for those who are saying they were lame and boring? the game was lame and boring!!!

they’re getting such backlash because they did exactly what they got paid to do , PERFORM. They stayed away from politics which in turn makes me love them even more. Adam did not sound like himself last night i have also seen them in concert and his voice is amazing. Regardless I applaud maroon 5 for the donation for the big brothers and sisters charity , That was a beautiful donation. the game was TERRIBLE!!! I have seen many halftime shows and this one was not the worst , so lets blame the game for the bad vibes.
