"Maroon 5 headlined the Super Bowl halftime show, with throwback songs like 'This Love" as well as their more recent hits. Judging by the internet's reaction to their performance, and Levine's post-show Instagram note that reads like a sort-of explanation/apology, it was a disaster.
Fans were especially hoping to see the tribute in the form of a reference to "Sweet Victory", a song which is performed by SpongeBob and friends in an arena, making it flawless for the Super Bowl.
"Janet Jackson's good reputation was tarnished for 50 percent less nipple than we saw today", another user added. "Forgive, Laugh, Cry, Smile, Share, Live, Endure, Embrace, Remember, Enlighten, Preserve, Inspire, Sweat, Fight, Express, Give, Receive, Elevate, Climb, Unify, Fortify, Soften, Dance, Scream, Dream, Educate, Provide, Inhale, Exhale, Persevere, Stand, Kneel, Overcome, Love, Listen".

While there were many that enjoyed the halftime show, there were a lot of people who were not fans of it. No one was particularly excited to see Maroon 5 performing at the halftime show in Atlanta when there were so many great Atlanta artists to choose from.
All of the above distress and disappointment seemed to come to the fore during last night's Superbowl halftime performance. Unfortunately, the tribute wasn't what fans had hoped for but don't worry: fans are fixing that oversight by giving Super Bowl audiences the "Sweet Victory" they were looking for. Rihanna also reportedly turned down the opportunity to perform.
Compared to the energy bands like The Rolling Stones have brought to the Super Bowl stage in previous years and the incredible production values musicians like Lady Gaga have put forth, Maroon 5 was just ... boring.
