We'll Just Say It: Beyonce Won Super Bowl 50
As expected, Bey blew it out of the water.
We really were hoping to deviate from the norm, but in the interest of authenticity, we're going to have to say it: Beyonce just won Super Bowl 50.
While this year's show was noteworthy, it was a far cry from 2015, when Katy Perry dressed as a beach ball and fluttered around a digital oasis with directionally-challenged sharks.
We know, we know, we miss it too.
This year, Coldplay's Chris Martin headed up the band's own rainbow road-reminiscent performance with fan favorites "Viva La Vida" and "Paradise," prior to jumping into brand new single "Adventure of a Lifetime."
Please note that he was rocking a rainbow mic. Mario be damned.
As expected, art and theatrics were intensely fun and visual. The theme throughout was worldly, meant to honor the myriad halftime shows of the last 50 years while offering a vibe of peace and love.
Bruno Mars followed Martin with his own hit, "Uptown Funk." Unsurprisingly, however, the most exciting part of the show was when Beyonce joined in. The two danced and sang together before the collection of moments from past halftime shows began to flick across the big screen.
Everyone from James Brown to Perry were paid tribute...though we all know who the real star of last year's show was.
Beyonce's brand new song, "Formation," also hit the field. Supported by a bevy of similarly clad ladies and sporadic fire shoots, 'Yonce stole the show in approximately six seconds.
There's no denying the talent of each of the artists who participated, but in all reality, how could anyone have topped this?
Your play, Left Shark. Your play.
