Maroon 5 is criticized as "boring" and "safe" for Super Bowl's performance

Maroon 5 may regret that it has accepted the offer of this year's Super Bowl Halftime Show.

Critics in the social media were largely dissatisfied with the perceived as boring and safe performance. The most talked about moment was when the singer, Adam Levine, took off his T-shirt to sing "Moves Like Jagger".

The New Yorker gave the headline: "The Artless Spectacle of Maroon 5 in the Super Bowl."

The performance started promising. There were synchronized fireworks off the stage shaped like an "M". The band played some well-known pieces like "Harder to Breathe" and their oldie "This Love". But the performance was widely viewed as incoherent and uncomfortable, although Travis Scott and Big Boi were in Atlanta's Mercedes-Benz Stadium.

PATS WIN SUPER BOWL Kavitha Davidson, an ESPN writer, tweeted that the performance was like the "Fyre Festival" of mid-term shows. Another user has tweeted: "Maroon 5 is like the pumpkin spice-latte of music and no, that's not a compliment."

have boycotted the NFL for handling Colin Kaepernick, the former quarterback who protested racist injustice by kneeling during the national anthem. Some interpreters refused to participate in the Super Bowl as a result, so the band just risked being there. Levine was even criticized online for taking off his shirt.


Some in social media called what they perceived as double standards in the treatment of Janet Jackson in 2004 after the infamous "wardrobe malfunction."

"A friendly reminder that Janet Jackson has been blacklisted for what Adam Levine was doing," wrote one user.

Levine gave a positive message after hearing about criticism, saying, "We thank the universe for making our dreams possible. And we thank our critics for always getting us to do better. One love.
