SANTA CLARA, Calif. (CBSMiami) — The Pepsi Superbowl 50 halftime show was a musical showcase of the present, a look ahead to the future and a nostalgic nod to the past.
Headliner Coldplay filled Levi’s Stadium with a medley of some of their biggest hits such as Viva La Vida, Paradise and many more.
It was an explosion of colors and positivity, with a look ahead to a bright future.
Bruno Mars took over with his mega dance hit Uptown Funk.
With cheers from the fans at the Fontainebleau Miami Beach, who were supposed to be enjoying a cabana poolside watch party but took it inside due to cold temperatures, they all felt the heat of Queen Bee.
Beyonce rocked the stadium with her brand new song Formation.
Just after the show, Beyonce announced a new world tour called “Formation” kicking off, where else, but in Miami at Marlins Park on April 27th.
Back to the past, the musicians celebrated the Superbowl’s most historical halftime performances.
We saw Springsteen, Missy Elliot, The Rolling Stones, Paul McCartney, James Brown, U2, Whitney Houston, Michael Jackson and many more. All three performers joined together in unison celebrating the night.
Fans at this Super Bowl party were not disappointed.
“I loved Beyonce” said one young bride to be. “I loved Colplay” said her fiancé. “So we’re all good.”
“It was the real deal McNeal,” said a fan named Steve. “You will never see a show like this again. I don’t care if Elvis came back, you’ll never see a show this great again.”
At the end of the day, while we all know the Superbowl is an evening of champions, both in sports and entertainment, on this night’s spectacular halftime show, it took it to another level.
