ATLANTA -- Maroon 5 closed out its glitzy halftime show with frontman Adam Levine going shirtless for "Moves Like Jagger," and a controversy-free performance was complete.

Rappers Travis Scott and Big Boi each performed one truncated song. A marching band and a gospel choir joined in, but there was no apparent reference onstage to supporting former San Francisco quarterback Colin Kaepernick, a focal point following his kneeling during the national anthem to protest social injustice.

The performance also featured an homage to a popular episode of "Spongebob Squarepants" that featured a fictional halftime performance at a major football game.
