This year, after much clamor, Adam Levine's Maroon 5 and Travis Scott linked up for the halftime show. Scroll through our gallery to see all of the most incredible moments!

In between, Maroon 5 cranked out the biggest hits from its catalog, from "your divorced mom listens to this before going out for two glasses of wine" to "that's the song that made Uncle Jerry hurt his hip at your cousin's wedding".

Elsewhere, viewers questioned the relative lack of theatrics or style in Maroon 5's performance. Throughout the show they continued to hit all of their fan's favorite tunes.

Marooon 5 managed to avoid political preaching during its Super Bowl LIII halftime show - but the band also forgot to be entertaining.

"I've never been more excited in my entire life to present this to the people because I believe that it's truly a reflection of all of us", said Levine.

Jackson's 2004 Super Bowl performance, which has been dubbed "Nipplegate", saw special guest Justin Timberlake rip off a piece of her clothing, thereby baring her nipple to the world.

After graduating from Yale Law School, Booker went to work for a nonprofit that represented tenants against slumlords. As a bachelor, Senator Booker has often faced questions about his sexuality from political opponents and journalists.

The band reportedly struggled to find guests to join them on stage following the stand taken by a number of artists against the National Football League over the organisation's ongoing controversial relationship with Colin Kaepernick.

After Beyonce tore the house and neighboring suburbs down with her performance in 2016 and Lady Gaga dived off a building in 2017, there was a lot for Maroon 5 to live up to, sure.

Anyway, Levine stuck to tradition here: He started in a long black coat, then went to a tracksuit, then a tank top, and then no shirt at all.

Another person commented: "Why the hell did these bring Travis Scott if they are legit gonna bleep every other word that comes out of his mouth?!?" Rapper Cardi B said she declined the lucrative opportunity as well. Justin Timberlake headlined the show previous year with minimal fuss (aside from references to his "Nipplegate" involvement), and in 2017 Lady Gaga was the main attraction.
