UPDATED: Maroon 5's Superbowl performance is being called mediocre, at best. Add the damage already caused by their controversial 'take-the-knee' dissing decision to perform, and it all seems to have been hardly worth it for the band. Just in case you are still not convinced, check out these stats from Pandora and Amazon
Maroon 5 has a 253% spike in station adds on Pandora after their Superbowl performance. Not bad, until you learn that Big Boi spiked more than 946% on Pandora, despite a very brief appearance.
The night’s other top performers on Pandora:
- Chloe x Halle: 365% (America the Beautiful)
- Gladys Knight: 262% (National Anthem)
- Outkast: 114% (as a result of Big Boi’s appearance)
