Between Bruno Mars' halftime performance with the Red Hot Chili Peppers, Laurence Fishburne's opera and Ellen Degeneres' Beats commercial, which Super Bowl moment nabbed the most Shazams?

The music search app beat its own Super Bowl record with over 700,000 uses -- more than double the count of last year's game that featured Beyonce and Destiny's Child as its halftime performers.

Despite all the music-related ads that aired throughout the broadcast, over half of the Shazams occurred during Mars' halftime performance. The top searched moment of the entire game was when the Red Hot Chili Peppers emerged shirtless and rocked the stage with "Give It Away," followed by Mars' first solo hit, "Just The Way You Are," with which he closed halftime, along with a ton of fireworks.

Coming in third in Shazam's statistics was Chevrolet's "Life" ad, a sentimental spot for which featured "Don't Leave" by Ane Brun. Fourth place belongs to Jaguar's "Rendezvous" ad, with appearances by Ben Kingsley, Tom Hiddleston and Mark Strong and using an epic action-film score.

Rounding out the top five was Mars' "Runaway Baby" performance, which pulls from Barry Strong's 1960 hit "Money (That's What I Want)."

Following Chevrolet and Jaguar in the top Shazamed Super Bowl ads were Bud Light's "Cool Twist," Bank of America's ad which debuted the new single "Invisible" by U2, and Budweiser's moving military homecoming, "A Hero's Welcome."
