Technically, it was Coldplay’s Halftime Show for Super Bowl 50. But unofficially, Bruno Mars and Beyonce stole the show. Enough so that there is a youtube clip of just their portion of the performance.
It’s nothing against Coldplay. They have some great music. But when it came to deliver a performance that felt fresh, clever, playful, and alive, Bruno Mars and Beyonce succeeded.
The guys vs. girls, black/gold costumes to black/gold costumes, mash up to mash up was something to remember.
