That's another Super Bow halftime show in the books -- and as was to be expected, Beyonce stole the show away from Bruno Mars and headliners Coldplay. Just one day after releasing her new single "Formation" Bey brought the track to Levi's Stadium, in an epic dance off with "Uptown Funk" singer Mars.
But, before the moment that is sure to have people talking for years to come, we had to get through Coldplay, who were clearly so full of glee to be up on the stage. Accompanying the band's message of love and peace for the world (which was emphasized through colorful signs held up by the audience in the background), Chris Martin was all smiles, interacting with the small crowd surrounding the stage.
Martin and Coldplay opened up the show crouching on the Super Bowl field, singing Coldplay's massive hit "Yellow." Soon, he joined the rest of his band onstage and ran through a best-of setlist, including "Viva La Vida," "Paradise" and "Adventure of a Lifetime."
But, Coldplay soon turned into a straight-up backing band when Mars brought the biggest song of the last year, "Uptown Funk" to the stage, with some DJing help courtesy of Mark Ronson. Dressed in a dramatic black (in contrast to Coldplay's rainbow staging) and his dance moves brought some much-needed energy and sass to the stage -- his performance almost seemed unmatchable, until Queen Bey took to the field.
Dressed in a gold and black bodysuit (paying homage to Michael Jackson's Super Bowl halftime show look), Beyonce and her all-black dance crew got in "Formation" with a boldness and determination. Though the single itself is fresh off the presses, it resonated with a force that could not be reckoned with -- sorry Coldplay.
Beyonce and Mars continued their dominance with a "Formation/Uptown Funk" mashup and dance-off, which escalated into a massive, intense stare-off that was only broken up by Coldplay coming back to the forefront and singing "Clocks."
Thought the dance-off could have signaled a massive rivalry between Bey and Bruno, in a message of love, all of the Super Bowl performers came together for a touching rendition of "Fix You," bringing the message back to love and peace.
