After Levine threw the ATLiens jacket he wore during Big Boi's performance into the crowd and launched into the band's hit "Sugar", Twitter lit up with reactions to his geometric-print brown tank. "Some of the words that came to me in that moment eventually made their way onto the incredible lanterns that flew high and low tonight", he wrote in a lengthy caption.

"We thank the universe for this historic opportunity to play on the world's biggest stage", said Levine. This halftime show though. We thank our fans for making our dreams possible.

Framingham native and TV personality Katie Nolan, actress Aisha Tyler, rapper Amine, and others took to Twitter to share their thoughts during Super Bowl Sunday, or what some on the social media site have referred to as "Janet Jackson Appreciation Day". And we thank our critics for always pushing us to do better.

Many Super Bowl watchers, however, were more unimpressed by what Levine wasn't wearing - with some declaring the shirtless last-quarter of his halftime performance the sweaty second coming of "Nipplegate".

"Janet Jackson showed a nipple and the country went nuts", comedian Maz Jobrani tweeted.

As part of the choreography, Timberlake had attempted to tear off a section of Jackson's outfit but then accidentally removed her bra in the process.

Per usual, the halftime show generated the most conversation for both the diehard football fans and the casual snackers alike.

"Baz, Adam Levine left this comment on my instagram post in December because I called him a sellout for saying rock is dead".

And now, after Levine's performance, Twitter users noticed the double standards as the Super Bowl allowed the Maroon 5 star to strip intentionally.
