The set included the songs "Girls Like You," "She Will Be Loved" and "Moves Like Jagger."

The group performed on an M-shaped stage, which had flames popping out of it. At times, the musicians were joined by a marching band, gospel choir, and rappers Travis Scott and Big Boi.

At one point, Maroon 5 lead singer walked through a crowd of spectators holding glowing balls as the words "One" and "Love" lit up the night sky above them.

The NFL officially announced last month that Maroon 5 would be the headlining musical act for the high-profile football game, which is being played by the New England Patriots and the Los Angeles Rams.

Among the previous music icons who have performed at past Super Bowls are Justin Timberlake, Lady Gaga, Coldplay, Katy Perry, Missy Elliott, Lenny Kravitz, Bruno Mars, Red Hot Chili Peppers, Madonna, Nicki Minaj, The Who, Bruce Springsteen & The E Street Band, Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers, Prince, the Rolling Stones, Paul McCartney and U2.
