Maroon 5 Really May Tribute SpongeBob with “Sweet Victory” at Super Bowl Halftime Show

Amidst a lot of controversy about Maroon 5 and their 2019 Super Bowl Hafltime performance, some amazing news breaks through from the rehearsing sessions at Mercedes-Benz Stadium, Atlanta. According the leaking news, Maroon 5 really could be considering the request to perform “Sweet Victory” from the popular kids animated series SpongeBob SquarePants.

“Sweet Victory” originally is by the American rock singer and songwriter David Glen. SpongeBob series adopted this song for their episode ‘Band Geeks’ in season 2. In this epic scene, SpongeBob performs the lead vocals of the song backed by an ensemble of a fish band and conducted by Squidward the Squid. In the episode, we see SpongeBob and his band trying to perfect music, but failing. However, during the actual performance, everybody pulls through and delivers an amazing “Sweet Victory” performance to a football crowd. And the football show is called ‘Bubble Bowl.’ 🙂

In November 2018, the creator of SpongeBob SquarePants–Stephen Hillenberg passed away due to ALS at the age of 57. TMZ reports that his ashes were scattered in the ocean near California. This stirred up a petition to pay tribute to this legend at the Super Bowl 2019 Halftime show.

Angela Moryan and Jamal Williams were the first to hint the song being performed at the show. They both Tweeted images and sound recordings from the rehearsing sessions by Maroon 5 at the stadium.

If this show does happen, it would be a rightful tribute to the amazing SpongeBob SquarePants show as well as its creator Stephen Hillenberg. We will be keeping our eyes peeled for more updates on this regard. Stay tuned with us.

In the meantime, catch the “Sweet Victory” performance by SpongeBob and the Bikini Bottom Super Band from the TV episode below.

RIP, Stephen Hillenberg!!!

UPDATE:

Pepsi Super Bowl LIII Halftime Show flopped so badly that “Sweet Victory” was not performed live at the show. They did air a 6-second clip from the episode, which was met with a wave of outrage. This 6-second clip was only an intro to Travis Scott’s “Sicko Mode.” Stephen Hillenberg dedicated his entire life to this creation and this was not the send-off he deserved. Mercedez-Benz Studio tried to calm the massive backlash by playing the SpongeBob scene to an empty stadium–after the game was over. Like who wants that. This has sparked the Twitter spree #SpongeBobDeservedBetter. We couldn’t agree more!
