Each of us have different motives to watch the Superbowl--some for the commercials, some for the actual game and some for the halftime show. But, this year's halftime show was definitely one of the most memorable ones in recent years.
It was announced several weeks back that Coldplay and Beyoncé would be headlining the show. However, Bruno Mars also made a surprise appearance and performed his smash hit, "Uptown Funk."
Coldplay started off the show with its hit record, "Viva La Vida." Breaking away from its typical somber tone, Chris Martin and the band's energy was passionate and vibrant--matching the band's colorful attire and set.
Moments later, in between Bruno Mars' "Uptown Funk" performance, Queen Bey made her grand entrance. The Queen and her B's performed Beyoncé's newest track, "Formation," with intricate choreography to match. Beyoncé also payed homage to the late King of Pop Michael Jackson, by donning an outfit similar to Jackson's in his 1993 Superbowl performance.
However, during her performance, Beyoncé made a slight error, which could have ended badly but she took it in stride. Watch it below:
The show closed in astounding fashion with Coldplay's "Fix You." As the song approached its finale, Beyoncé, Bruno Mars and their respective dance crews joined Coldplay on the main stage and caroled along. At one point, the bunch and the fans sang in chilling a cappella. The show concluded with a camera pan to the stands, which read "Believe In Love," in an array of colors.
