And, no surprise, she looked great doing it.

Add in some montages of the Grand Canyon, Boston and Seattle and you just can't help but love 'Murica even more than you already did.

That's a joke, people. The song was the national anthem, which probably confused a lot of 6-year-old football fans out there.

We're not sure which commercial we liked better; all we know is that we want to buy some insurance now.

It cost him a world of hurt -- Lane suffered a nasty-looking arm injury -- but that just made his intercept of a Tom Brady pass all the more amazing.

The sneaky commercial made it look like our TV reception had failed for a split second. We you fooled too? So was half the Twitterverse.

The cute comedy couple kept fans entertained with their posts, pics and totally infectious attitude.

Kevin Hart, Will Ferrell, Kenny Chesney, Mark Wahlberg, Steven Tyler, John Travolta, Sir Paul McCartney, John Travolta -- they were all there. But the biggest star of the night? Totally Tom Brady.

This little-known Seahawk pretty much won the first half of the Super Bowl. Too bad about the rest.

Super Bowl, Katy Perry

Because all the giant tigers were busy last night.

Super Bowl, Missy Elliot

Things got way more energetic when Missy Elliott joined Perry onstage. And those jumpsuits!

Which is actually what teenagers dream about, at least 80 percent of the time. True fact.

Super Bowl, Chess

Now that was real witchcraft. We've never seen "Dark Horse" performed with such cool production value.

Super Bowl, the More You Know
14 of 16 Erik S. Lesser/Landov

14. This became an instant meme.

Super Bowl, Butler Interception
15 of 16 Larry W. Smith/EPA/Landov

The elated Patriot said he had a vision that he was going to make an amazing play. Guy should really try the lottery.

Budweiser, Gallery, Super Bowl XLIX

Yet another Budweiser commercial owned the Super Bowl this year. If a bunch of horses saving a puppy from a wolf attack didn't move you to weep, then you're a big meanie.
