Watch Maroon 5's hit-packed Super Bowl performance

Watch Maroon 5's hit-packed Super Bowl performance

With regards to Maroon 5's performance, the pop-rockers called on Spongebob, Travis Scott, and Outkast's Big Boi to lend them a helping hand during the show but it didn't improve their fate.

He told "Entertainment Tonight" that "no one thought about" doing the halftime show performance more than he did. "No one put more thought and love into this than I did". The musical interlude was headlined by Maroon 5, with appearances by Travis Scott and Big Boi.

The concert carried the added burden of a historically lackluster game: the score between the New England Patriots and the Los Angels Rams was just 3-0 at halftime when Maroon 5 took the stage amid fire blasts and a light show.

The controversy reared its head again on Tuesday when a previously scheduled press conference for Maroon 5 and the halftime show was canceled, with the National Football League issuing a statement saying that "the artists will let their show do the talking". Kaepernick has filed a lawsuit agains the NFL, claiming that they tried to lock him out from league after he repeatedly kneeled during pre-game playings of the United States national anthem as a protest against police brutality towards African Americans.

The Superbowl halftime show is a legacy gig for musicians, a 10 minute all-in spectacle where they have the chance to grab the whole world's attention.

In the Instagram post, Adam Levine wrote: "When we accepted the responsibility to perform at the SBHTS, I took out my pen and just wrote".

Fireworks heralded the beginning (and end) of Maroon 5's performance as they played on a stage in the shape of an M and started with their early hits Harder to Breathe and This Love.

"Janet Jackson's good reputation was tarnished for 50 percent less nipple than we saw today", another user added.

Last night's performance was the first time a lot of non-Maroon 5 stans out there realised that Adam was covered in a shit ton of tattoos and now, the internet is swarming with memes about his torso. "I have the same a chair!" they said.
