Maroon 5 'Thanks' Taraji P. Henson After Mistaken Super Bowl Shout-Out

Maroon 5 are good sports when it comes to cases of mistaken identity.

On Monday, the band issued a cute response to Taraji P. Henson's now-deleted shout-out from Super Bowl 50 in which she confused them with halftime performers Coldplay.

"YAAAAAAASSSSSS!!!!! #maroon5 is life to me!!! #superbowl50 #HappyCamper I am," she wrote on Instagram during Sunday's big game, captioning a shot of the concert stage.

The "Empire" star acknowledged her error within minutes, after corrections came flooding in from one user after another.

"Oooooooopppps. Lmao! #Superbowl50," she Tweeted. 

Maroon 5 didn't seem to mind, however, and poked good-natured fun at the fumble.

"Thanks for loving our performance from our seats at #SB50 @TherealTaraji," the band wrote on Twitter. "We think we sounded pretty good!"

Frontman Adam Levine also chimed in on Taraji's innocent mix-up, sharing a screenshot of her original post on his own Instagram page.

"THIS," he captioned.

The actress is apparently still chuckling over the incident, Tweeting a series of blushing, laughing and kissing emojis in response to the band's playful joke.
