The gentlemen of Maroon 5 don’t seem to have any hard feelings about Empire star Taraji P. Henson confusing them with Coldplay during the latter band’s Super Bowl 50 performance.
“Thanks for loving our performance from our seats at #SB50,” Maroon 5 tweeted Monday morning. “We think we sounded pretty good.”

During Sunday’s halftime show, Henson had exclaimed on social media, “YAAAAAAASSSSSS!!!! #maroon5 is life to me!!! #superbowl50 #HappyCamper I am.” Alas, Adam Levine and company weren’t anywhere near the stage, hence the lack of Jagger-like moves.
Henson eventually deleted the messages and tweeted, “Oooooooopppps. Lmao!”
She later said the mix-up was the result of her being over-served in her luxury suite. “I don’t know if you know how it goes down in the suites,” Henson told Entertainment Tonight. “They put a lot of drinks in there.”
Henson also returned Maroon 5’s good vibes with an emoji-filled tweet:
