The Super Bowl LIII Halftime Show, officially known as the Pepsi Super Bowl LIII Halftime Show, took place on February 3, 2019 at Mercedes-Benz Stadium in Atlanta, Georgia, as part of Super Bowl LIII. It was headlined by American pop group Maroon 5, joined by rappers Big Boi and Travis Scott as guests. In response to an online petition, a brief clip featuring the cast of SpongeBob SquarePants (referencing an episode that, itself, centered around a halftime show) was shown as a tribute to the show's creator, Stephen Hillenburg, who had died in November 2018.

  • The Super Bowl LIII Halftime Show, officially known as the Pepsi Super Bowl LIII Halftime Show, took place on February 3, 2019 at Mercedes-Benz Stadium in Atlanta, Georgia, as part of Super Bowl LIII. It was headlined by American pop group Maroon 5, joined by rappers Big Boi and Travis Scott as guests. Several musicians reportedly turned down offers to perform the show due to their support for Colin Kaepernick—who has accused the NFL and its franchises of colluding against him due to his national anthem protests against police brutality. As such, Maroon 5, Big Boi, and Scott, along with national anthem singer Gladys Knight, were criticized by fans and critics for accepting the invitation. In response to the controversy, Scott only agreed to participate if the NFL made a donation to a charity supporting social justice, and Maroon 5 later announced a similar donation to Big Brothers Big Sisters of America. In response to an online petition, a brief clip featuring the cast of SpongeBob SquarePants (referencing an episode that, itself, centered around a halftime show) was shown as a tribute to the show's creator, Stephen Hillenburg, who had died in November 2018. The show itself received largely negative reviews and had the lowest ratings in 10 years. Critics considered it to be boring and underwhelming, and argued that the choice of Maroon 5 was intended to be "safe" and uncontroversial in the wake of the Kaepernick controversy. (en)
