Maroon 5, Travis Scott, and Big Boi Perform at super bowl LIII 2019 halftime show
It’s lit. Following past headliners such as Justin Timberlake, Lady Gaga, and Beyoncé, Maroon 5 made history as the latest act to headline the Pepsi Super Bowl Halftime Show in Super Bowl LIII on Sunday (Feb. 3) with special guests Travis Scott and Big Boi. Emerging on a giant M-shaped stage at Mercedes-Benz Stadium in Atlanta, the Grammy-winning band kicked off the 13-minute functionality with their Songs About Jane hit “Harder to Breathe” before continuing with “This Love.”
The performance was dedicated by frontman Adam Levine Jordan Feldstein, to the group supervisor. “This one’s for you, Jordy,” he said at the start.
SpongeBob SquarePants and his friends from Bikini Bottom, including Squidward and Patrick, led a group that was marching to intro Travis, who crashed on the field at a meteor. Donning leather trousers and his very own Air Jordan 6 sneakers, Young LaFlame sparked the point with the volatile performance of “Sicko Mode.” Then he joined Levine for a rock mashup of the chart-topping Astroworld hit before exiting the point into the audience by diving back.

When we accepted the responsibility to perform at the SBHTS, I took out my pen and just wrote. Some of the words that came to me in that moment eventually made their way onto the incredible lanterns that flew high and low tonight. We thank the universe for this historic opportunity to play on the world’s biggest stage. We thank our fans for making our dreams possible. And we thank our critics for always pushing us to do better. One Love. ❤️ And the list of words is… 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
Maroon 5 continued with “Girls Just Like You,” complete with a gospel choir, and slowed things down with “She is going to be Loved.” ATL’s very own Big Boi rolled onto the field in style in the back of an old school Cadillac to “Kryptonite.” Rocking a fur coat, the OutKast legend performed “The Way You Move” with some aid from Sleepy Brown. Levine joined in, wearing an “ATLiens” bomber.
Stripping off his shirt, a tatted Levine closed out the medley with a set of Maroon 5 championships, “Sugar” and “Moves Like Jagger,” while enjoying a sexy pink guitar. There was controversy. Many artists such as Rihanna, Cardi B, and JAY-Z reportedly turned down the gig in support of Colin Kaepernick, that had been drummed for kneeling.
Travis, who kicked off the next leg of his “Astroworld: Wish You Were Here” tour each month, donated $500,000 in a venture with the NFL to social justice accelerator Dream Corps.
