Maroon 5’s Super Bowl performance didn’t fare well with fans

Maroon 5’s Super Bowl performance didn’t fare well with fans

But the crowd seemed to get riled up the most for Big Boi, who rolled into the show in a classic vehicle.

Maroon 5 will take the stage at halftime of Sunday night's contest at Mercedes-Benz Stadium in Atlanta, and they will be joined by Big Boi and Travis Scott.

As you know by now, the band took over the field at the Super Bowl in Atlanta, Georgia earlier tonight but it seems like fans were more excited over a possible Spongebob appearance at the big event. Nevertheless, it was certainly a momentous occasion for Scott who accepted the opportunity after catching criticism for his decision to appear in light of the NFL's treatment of Colin Kaepernick.

Maroon 5 frontman Adam Levine had a number of wardrobe changes during the short performance.

He'd exit the stage just after leading the crowd into a classic "ATL Hoe" chant.

"Solution: Perform "Sweet Victory" at the Halftime Show". I think we're doing the same thing.

And while some tweeted praise for Sunday's halftime entertainment, in this politically polarized time, a beloved cartoon character and a shirtless Levine stalking the stage weren't enough to win over every critic.

Following the halftime show, Twitter was filled with mixed reactions from spectators. After their performance, Maroon 5 shared a message on Instagram, thanking fans for support and revealing a list of words they wrote down after accepting the gig. Scott made a joint donation with the National Football League weeks before the show to a social justice organization called Dream Corps.

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.

The band teased "SpongeBob Squarepants" song "Sweet Victory" before Scott entered with a slew of fireballs and pyrotechnics.
