Maroon 5's racy Super Bowl show

NFL fans had plenty of jokes for Maroon 5's Super Bowl halftime performance

NFL fans had plenty of jokes for Maroon 5's Super Bowl halftime performance

Marooon 5 managed to avoid political preaching during its Super Bowl LIII halftime show - but the band also forgot to be entertaining.

From there, Maroon 5 brought out a drumline and an entire choir for their performance of "Girls Like You" while the crowd waved its hands in unison behind them.

Kaepernick's subsequent treatment by the National Football League led to many A-list acts such as Jay-Z, Rihanna and Cardi B turning down the halftime-performance spot this year.

One of the female singers let it rip and blew Levine and everyone else off the stage in that fine moment.

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

According to the Recording Academy, which runs the Grammys, Maroon 5 donated its performance fee to Big Brothers Big Sisters of America. Then came hometown favorites Sleepy Brown and Big Boi (André 3000 is too busy starring in Claire Denis films), who performed the Outkast classic The Way You Move, clad in fabulous furs, and was gone in a flash.

The Galaxy S10 family is also reportedly in mass production - just weeks ahead of the formal launch that is set for February 20. It's also worth pointing out the S10E will only ship with two rear cameras instead of three like on the other two S10s.

Those thoughts lingered again when Levine sang "Moves Like Jagger".

"If halftime doesn't end soon Adam Levine might be naked", tweeted sports anchor Steve Layman.

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 US national anthem.

One person who signed their name said: "It's a hugely inspirational song that I listen to when working out and boosting confidence, but besides that I want it played at the Super Bowl to honour the man who gave us one of the greatest and most quotable cartoons of all time". After all, the Super Bowl halftime score was 3 - 0 Patriots.

The show closed with a guitar solo and fireworks, with the band hugging Scott and Big Boi before making their exits.

The game will be broadcast on CBS, and that's where the halftime show can be seen, as well. While some actually meant to watch the New England Patriots beat the Los Angeles Rams, many admittedly only tuned in for the halftime show. Live Super Bowl coverage on CBS will begin at 2:00 p.m. ET.
