Bruno Mars we knew about. When Mark Ronson showed up to mix "Uptown Funk" we were pleasantly surprised.

She slayed, performing her brand new single "Formation." Note: Beyoncé gave the world a gift when she released "Formation" and it's accompanying video the day before the big game.

As if four Coldplay songs, "Uptown Funk," and Beyoncé's new jam "Formation" weren't enough, Bruno Mars and Beyoncé rallied their crews for a high-energy dance battle as Mark Ronson fused their two songs.

At one point during the dance battle, Beyoncé nearly fell. If you blinked you probably missed it because she played it off so gracefully. How? She's Beyoncé, that's how.

Coldplay brought light to the Super Bowl 50 Halftime Show theme "Past, Present, and Future" by honoring Super Bowl performances of the past. As clips from past halftime shows played on screens and on the video-screened stage, Coldplay ended the show with a new rendition of their hit "Fix You."
