The appearance of Maroon 5 during the Super Bowl break could rely on small applause on Sunday night. The American media had many comments about the concert of Adam Levin and his band.
deadline writes that Maroon 5's "horrible" half-time story lacked the necessary soul and did not seem to start. gunner noted that Levine "at least took off his shirt" but also joked that the band's appearance was overshadowed by SpongeBob. The figure of the animated film was just on the picture to present guest Travis Scott.
USA Today said the group had played safely during performance. According to the newspaper, this is exactly what the NFL is looking for after the critical criticism and the refusal of the stars like Rihanna and Cardi B to play at Super Bowl. The reviewer felt that this boring approach was not enough to make the concert unforgettable.
Music guests Big Boi and Travis Scott received more positive comments, although Scott made a very short contribution before leaving the scene in crowdsurfing. Only TV viewers can enjoy part of the Big Boi performance. The Outkast rapper's lyrics were often too bold for US television, so the sound was turned off several times during his performance.
