Maroon 5 Supply Super Bowl with a ‘WTF was that’ moment

by Paul Cashmere on February 4, 2019

The Super Bowl felt like an early April Fool’s joke with Maroon 5 turning in the least innovative performance of all-time at the major event.

The Super Bowl had traditionally attracted the best of the best for the halftime entertainment. Over the years Paul McCartney, The Rolling Stones, The Who, Madonna, Justin Timberlake, Lady Gaga, Beyonce, Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers, Bruce Springsteen & the E Street Band and Sting have played.

WHAT THE FUCK were they thinking signing up Maroon 5?

Everything about the Maroon 5 performance was a cliché. The fireworks, the Levine tanktop followed by tattooed chest, the ‘Insert Gospel Choir here’ moment. Was this actually real or some sketch being filmed for a Will Ferrell movie?

The addition of Maroon 5 was not only a mistake, it was an insult. This ‘made for elevator band’ is perfect for pop radio to fill sounds between ad-breaks but as a showcase for a global event, again …WTF were they thinking?
