What a fantastic journey for all of us during the Super Bowl 50 Halftime Show. There were fireworks and marching bands during ColdPlay’s musical segment but, undeniably, their fantastic songs were front and center.
I have to say, though, that the audio feed was pretty weak. I could barely hear Chris Martin. Can these audio engineers ever get it right?
But, then came Bruno Mars and his Uptown Funk, with Mark Ronson on the DJ Board. I could hear him just fine – not all the time but better than Chris Martin and Coldplay. And, man, can that boy move! I could watch this guy all night. So much talent, so much charisma and that song is ridiculously contagious in the best way possible.
Then the diva of the night, the talented Beyoncé, hit the stage – well, the grass really. She performed her newly released single, “Formation“, before rocking on with Bruno and his gang. They did the Uptown Funky dance together. Then Chris Martin of Coldplay joined in and the three together were dynamite. So much musical talent on that stage. Incredible.
Finally, all three artists performed with a ton of background vocalists and dancers and, of course, the traditional fireworks display while a video collage of past Super Bowl performers were streamed across our TV screen. What a tremendous moment in time this was.
Don’t believe it? – Just watch!
