After fans demanded a performance by Spongebob Squarepants at this year’s Super Bowl LIII, and 1.2 million signed the change.org petition for the performance to happen, it seems that it WILL be happening this year during Maroon 5’s halftime performance. The petition began late last year, following the death of SpongeBob’s creator Stephen Hillenburg.
Maroon 5 is set to performance at the halftime show tomorrow (February 3rd), a massive stage which has been played by the likes of Beyonce’, Lady Gaga, Coldplay, and last year Justin Timberlake. Some very notable influencers and characters have come from Super Bowl performances year after year like Justin Timberlake’s selfies with the now known, Selfie Kid on social media or what about Katy Perry’s ‘Left Shark’ in 2015 which quickly went viral. We think that Spongebob’s “Sweet Victory” is going to top all of those during Maroon 5’s performance tomorrow.
“Sweet Victory” was performed by Spongebob, Patrick Star, and the Bikini Bottom Super Band conducted by Squidward at The Bubble Bowl (Super Bowl in Bikini Bottom). You can check out their original performance of the song below:
A few weeks ago when Maroon 5 teased their performance, announcing that they will be performing at this year’s Super Bowl across social media, Spongebob appeared in the teaser snippet video which you can check out below:

Also, the venue hosting the Super Bowl LIII this year, teased the Spongebob halftime performance with a photo on their Twitter with a GIF of the “Sweet Victory” Bubble Bowl Performance.

Well, Now reports have come in from people who are on site in Atlanta for this year’s Super Bowl performance and game that can confirm that “Sweet Victory” seemingly will definitely be included within the halftime performance as Sports Reporter Angela Moryan tweeted out a photo of the rehearsal she was able to capture as well as saying in her tweet “we can hear Maroon 5 practicing right now.”
