Colin Kaepernick's Attorney Thinks Maroon 5 Is Crossing the "Picket Line"

Maroon 5 lead singer Adam Levine performs during the halftime show in Super Bowl LIII at Mercedes-Benz Stadium.

After SpongeBob creator Stephen Hillenburg passed away past year, more than 1.2 million fans signed a petition to have the song "Sweet Victory", featured in an iconic SpongeBob episode, performed at the Super Bowl.

That may be the case with Maroon 5's halftime performance Sunday during Super Bowl 53.

He'd exit the stage just after leading the crowd into a classic "ATL Hoe" chant.

While the lead-up to Maroon 5's appearance at the Super Bowl sparked a spirited debate about the decision to perform during a controversial year, the band's actual 14 minutes on stage will likely go down in halftime history as rather forgettable.

Gisele Bündchen, wife of New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady, after the Patriots won the 2019 Super Bowl. The wider public was confused with Scott's short performance, while Spongebob fans weren't impressed with the shorter "Sweet Victory" snippet. However, Levine told Entertainment Tonight that "no one thought about it more than I did".

Wade, Nowitzki honored as special additions to All-Star Game
So far this season, the 37-year-old is averaging 13.6 points, 3.6 rebounds and 4.3 assists per game. The 68th NBA All-Star Game will take place at the Spectrum Center in Charlotte on February 17.

More than a million people signed a petition to get the cartoon character on the highly anticipated moment during the largest sporting event of the year. Well, similar in that another nipple was almost-sort-of on display, after Justin Timberlake exposed Janet Jackson's breast during the halftime show in 2004.

So Maroon 5, Travis Scott and Big Boi (one half of hip-hop duo Outkast) will all likely receive small potatoes for performing.

The song itself is extremely fitting for a halftime show - especially considering that SpongeBob and his "band" performed it during halftime of a football game in the episode itself.

It was supposed to be the exclamation point to Maroon 5's performance, but that came earlier in their set when Levine was joined by a drumline and local gospel choir on stage for the band's latest hit Girls Like You.

"To watch the game is to compromise my beliefs, "she tweeted".
