​Maroon 5's Super Bowl Halftime Show Was as Bad as Everyone Expected

​Maroon 5's Super Bowl Halftime Show Was as Bad as Everyone Expected
Maroon 5 took the gig that nobody else wanted, stepping into the role of Super Bowl halftime show headliners in a year where plenty of others turned it down to support Colin Kaepernick and protest the NFL. As expected, Adam Levine and co. delivered a lacklustre string of greatest hits, with very brief cameos from Travis Scott and Big Boi (and SpongeBob SquarePants).
 
In addition to barely playing the guitar he made a big show of wearing around his neck, Levine also used the stage to perform a layer-by-layer striptease, eventually ripping off his dizzying tank top during "Moves Like Jagger" — a far less subtle move than the one that got Janet Jackson blacklisted in 2004.
 
Others were more offended by the teased intro to SpongeBob's Bubble Bowl rendition of "Sweet Victory" — which abruptly cut out and went into Scott's "Sicko Mode."

Oh, and in case you turned off the game during Maroon 5's performance, the Patriots beat the Rams 13–3.
