Adam Levine Strips During Maroon 5's Super Bowl Halftime Show

Adam Levine Strips During Maroon 5's Super Bowl Halftime Show

Adam Levine's group Maroon 5 headlined the Super Bowl 2019 halftime show at the Mercedes-Benz stadium in Atlanta.

Honestly, the better question is probably: When is the Maroon 5 frontman not shirtless?

Maroon 5 is the headliner performance for tonight's Super Bowl between the New England Patriots and the Los Angeles Rams. Well, SpongeBob did appear...but if you blinked, you missed it. Squidward did show up during the Halftime show, only to introduce Travis Scott.

Maroon 5 and the gospel choir.

Meanwhile, Atlanta's own Big Boi donned a giant fur coat as he rolled up in a auto and quickly spit out OutKast's classic "The Way You Move".

But hey, at least people did recognise that Adam Levine had a cool jacket.

Anyone expecting a political statement from Travis Scott or Big Boi during the Super Bowl halftime performance were left severely disappointed.

The band reportedly struggled to find guests to join them on stage following the stand taken by a number of artists against the National Football League over the organisation's ongoing controversial relationship with Colin Kaepernick.

The dowdy pattern on his tank top had social media comparing it to curtains, cushions, and even the look favoured by Russian gangsters.

Big Boi also knew how to make an entrance, arriving on the field in a vintage Cadillac convertible, before getting up on stage to sing OutKast's The Way You Move while dressed in a fur coat and red Atlanta baseball cap.

"Love how Adam Levine can take off his entire shirt and grind on the stage but Janet Jackson..." said Washington Bar Association chair Preston Mitchum with a gloss of sarcasm.

Others were distracted by Scott's belt. Some performers declined participation in the Super Bowl as a result, so the band took a risk just being there.

The LA pop band only got the gig by default after the NFL's first choice - Rihanna - turned it down in October out of support for Colin Kaepernick's peaceful kneeling protest, according to Us Weekly.
