Review: Coldplay, Beyoncé & Bruno Mars' Super Bowl 50 Halftime Show

FUSE TV - Review: Coldplay, Beyoncé & Bruno Mars' Super Bowl 50 Halftime Show

So: Was it one of the best Super Bowl halftime shows of the millennium? Three years after Beyoncé shredded the stage solo (and, yeah, with some kickass help from Destiny's Child), Coldplay headlined the Super Bowl 50 halftime show with Bey and Bruno Mars at their side—plus a li'l appearance from Mark Ronson. And we're gonna answer that opening question with a huge YES!!! (Side note in the YES!!! Department: Beyoncé also just announced a three-month Formation World Tour. Get all the dates here.)

The 13-minute dynamite performance included rainbow violins, a zestily outfitted army of band geeks and a stage reminiscent of Coldplay's psychedelic A Head Full of Dreams album art. Bruno and some buds rolled up with '90s rap/R&B vibes (Ronson scratching on a turntable) to the now-immortal "Uptown Funk"; Bey turned up on the actual field itself with a couple dozen black-clad dancers to perform her brand new, one-day-old song "Formation." Before things wrapped, we got a beautiful montage of tons of Super Bowl halftime shows of years past, including clips of Michael JacksonThe Rolling Stones and Whitney Houston
