Big Boi performs during halftime of the NFL Super Bowl 53 football game between the Los Angeles Rams and the New England Patriots Sunday, Feb. 3, 2019, in Atlanta.

Maroon 5, then, were a suitable choice for a league that has taken great pains to safeguard its status as the national pastime and maintain as broad an appeal as possible.

While on stage, Maroon 5 was supported by guest performers rapper Travis Scott, 26, and Outkast's Big Boi, 44.

The group then launched into "This Love", with Levine removing his black trench coat, with Levine playing an extended guitar solo.

Social media cried foul when Maroon 5 frontman Adam Levine boldly removed his shirt during the band's performance in the 2019 Super Bowl LIII Pepsi Halftime Show.

The band paid tribute with a clip from the cartoon's second season that shows Spongebob performing at the Bubble Bowl, Bikini Bottom's version of the Super Bowl.

The musician was only one stage for a couple minutes - to the disappointed of many fans, some of whom complained about his short appearance.
