Besides the game, the biggest thing surrounding the Super Bowl is the halftime entertainment. And we now know who be playing at Super Bowl 53 in Atlanta: Maroon 5.
Really? Was Taylor Swift or literally anybody else not available?
Maroon 5 is ok, but they’ve become nothing more than a radio group. Everything they produce essentially sounds the same. For the last several years, it’s been pretty easily to pick out a Maroon 5 song. It’s usually the most generic sound imaginable.
In addition to their massive popularity, another big reason Maroon 5 was selected had to be that they are a relatively safe choice. Except for a few curse words here and there in their lyrics, they are just like every other pop group. The NFL doesn’t have to worry about any Janet Jackson-Justin Timberlake type antics with this band.
No, instead Adam Levine will sing a medley of all the songs about loving/missing/wanting to be with this girl and that girl. They’ll be a few surprise appearances probably from the likes of Cardi B or Christina Aguilera, somebody like that. Likely, won’t be anything memorable, much like Timberlake’s performance at last year’s Super Bowl.
Oh, well here’s hoping that game is a classic because from the looks of it, the halftime show won’t be.
