  This year, the 53rd Super Bowl took place on Feb. 3, 2019, at the Mercedes-Benz Stadium in Atlanta, Georgia. This year’s Halftime show was performed by Adam Levine with Maroon 5, Travis Scott, and Big Boi.

  Some of the songs that were performed are the following: “Sicko Mode” by Travis Scott, “The way you move” by Big Boi, and “Girls like you” and “Moves like Jagger” plus “She will be loved” by Maroon 5.

  There was plenty of controversy between people and the fact of how one song never got the chance to shine: “Sweet Victory” by David Glen Eisley. There were many teasers with Spongebob and if that version was going to play or not. There was even a petition online, which reached 1.2 million signatures, to make sure that the song would play.  

  Sophomore James O’Hara explained how upset he was when he realized that “Sweet Victory” did not play at the Halftime show.

  O’Hara stated,  “When I realized “Sweet Victory” wasn’t going to play, I hated it. The fact that it didn’t play was garbage.”

  Sophomore, Brody Elias expressed his disgust with the halftime show as well.

  Elias stated, “I didn’t like the show at all. I think “Sicko Mode” is way too overplayed and Maroon 5 really only has like two good songs. The whole show was lame in my opinion.”

   Senior Chaz Lumpkin on the other hand thought the show was pretty good, but then his opinion changed very quickly.

  Lumpkin explained, ”I liked it in the beginning with Maroon 5. Then Adam Levine started to take his shirt off and I stopped watching.”

  Lumpkin continued, “I was really mad they kind of baited me with “Sicko Mode” and they didn’t even play “Sweet Victory”; that’s when I became really depressed.”

So, Lakeview’s students had many different opinions on the Super Bowl Halftime show, some enjoyed it and others didn’t.
