Maroon 5 respond to Empire actress Taraji P. Henson’s Coldplay Super Bowl mix-up

An Instagram post from Henson went viral after she confused the two bands

Maroon 5 have responded to Empire actress Taraji P. Henson’s confusing Coldplay for them during the Super Bowl halftime performance.

The Golden Globe-winning star posted a photo on Instagram of the halftime show stage with the caption: “YAAAAAAASSSSSS!!! #maroon5 is life to me!!! #superbowl50 #HappyCamper I am.”

Maroon 5 frontman Adam Levine shared a screen grab of Henson’s since-deleted viral post with the caption “THIS”. The band have now tweeted about the error, writing: “Thanks for loving our performance from our seats at #SB50 @TherealTaraji. We think we sounded pretty good!”

Henson replied with a series of emojis.
