Watch: Beyoncé, Bruno Mars & Coldplay Perform at Super Bowl 50 Halftime Show


The hype for the Super Bowl 50 Halftime Show was just as high as the big game, and it fully delivered!

The headlining act was Coldplay but the famed band invited special guests Beyoncé and Bruno Mars to join them in the live spectacle at Levi’s Stadium in Santa Clara, California.

The colorful set began with Coldpay’s Chris Martin joining his band members on stage for “Viva La Vida,” “Paradise,” and “Adventure of a Lifetime” as a crowd jumped up and down along the stage.

Mark Ronson manned the ones and twos as Coldplay passed the mic to Bruno Mars, who gave a fiery rendition of their smash “Uptown Funk.” The singer, who channeled MC Hammer with his all-black leather Versace outfit, gave it his all for a verse before Queen Bey took over for a finely choreographed live debut of her new single “Formation.” Flanked by an all-black female dance troupe, Bey paid tribute to Michael Jackson with her military-inspired outfit from the King of Pop’s 1993 Super Bowl halftime show.

Backed by her ladies, she and Bruno squared off in a dance throwdown, joining back up with Martin after a montage looking back on 50 years of halftime shows to conclude with a group singalong to Coldplay’s “Up&Up.”

Immediately following the halftime performance, Beyoncé announced “The Formation World Tour,” which kicks off April 27 in Miami.

Beyoncé Gets Us Into Coordination With New Single + Video “Formation”!


Got damn, got damn, got damn!

Beyoncé is byke and she is here to play with NOT ONE OF YOU!

Right in time for her Super Bowl performance with Coldplay and Bruno Mars, the eldest child of Matthew and Celestine Knowles is here to give y’all the business on the track with absolutely no f*cks given. Delivering a Southern-banger titled “Formation,” the cornbread and collard green loving Texas diva gave the Mike WiLL Made-It-produced track exactly what it needed.

Co-written by Swae Lee of Rae Sremmurd, the song was released along with its own New Orleans shot visual. Paying homage to her background, black heritage, and country upbringing, Queen Bey encourages us to slay before we get eliminated.

Hosting a cameo from Blue Ivy herself, shots of Bey on top of a cop car in a flooded N.O. street, wearing all black with black men surrounding her, choreographed dance scenes, and everything else you can imagine from her, the five-minute visual story gives fans the response they’ve been waiting for from the Queen in reference to supporting the #BlackLivesMatter movement.

Featuring a young black boy in a black hoodie as cops raise their hands, a white wall reads in black spay paint: “Stop shooting us.” Simple, yet effective enough to get your attention.

“Formation” is available for free download on TIDAL now, and Bey has also dropped her “Formation Collection” of clothing featuring lyrics like “I twirl on them haters” and “You that bitch when you cause all of this conversation,” “Slay,” and “Hot Sauce.”

“You know you that b*tch when you cause all this conversation / Always stay gracious / Best revenge is your paper,” she sings out as the song closes.

Watch Queen Bey go off below!
