Last night millions tuned into CBS to watch the Denver Broncos beat the Carolina Panthers in Super Bowl 50. But like many Super Bowl’s past last night’s big game left viewers with many memorable music moments as well. Weather it was Lady Gaga’s national anthem performance, or Coldplay’s special guest filled halftime show, there is no doubt that music’s impact over the past 50 Super Bowls has taken center stage.
The National Anthem
From The Super Bowl 50 Pr-Game Show
It all started with Janelle Monae premiering her brand new Pepsi commercial who sponsored the performance. Then Coldplay took over the stage as an energetic Chris Martin jumped into a medley of their hits like “Viva La Vida,” “Paradise” and “Adventure Of A Lifetime.” This was followed Beyonce getting everyone in “Formation” with her new single that was released just before the big game.

Super Bowl 50 Halftime Show By Coldplay Featuring Beyonce, Bruno Mars And Mark Ronson
As if that wasn’t enough Bruno Mars and Mark Ronson made the surprise appearance that the web was talking about over the weekend thanks to a teased pair of photos Bruno shared on his Instagram. They wasted no getting into last year’s biggest hit single, “Uptown Funk.” Chris and Bey then joined the “Funk” as all the performers moved effortlessly into Coldplay’s “Up And Up.” This was a visual and musical moment in history that is keeping us all talking today. It was something we knew we had to share first thing today, but as usual, it has been difficult to find a good quality version of the entire performance that was not ripped off of YouTube due to a copyright claim, But we did find a good version shared by Rolling Stone, and a few different versions found both on YouTube and Daily Motion. Take a look at them, and enjoy and see what everyone is talking about
