The Super Bowl Halftime Show created a lot of stir. Coldplay, the band for the show, was unable to beat Beyonce in terms of glamor and appearance as the latter rocked the stage.


In the recent Super Bowl Halftime Show graced by Beyonce, Chris Martin, and Bruno Mars, sound played the villain.

The opening notes of Coldplay’s Yellow was quite unclear and it continued till the end. Beyonce tried her best to keep the stage alive with her vibrant presence. While she can easily be called the show-stealer, even her performance experienced a setback, owing to the shabby sound.

Halftime shows always have a theme to follow. This year, Super Bowl 50’s Halftime Show offered a glimpse of yesteryears. Beyonce tried to present her biggest gigs of the year. However, she was not able to make up for the quality of the sound.

The show started with Chris Martin, who surely looked out of track, though he tried to cover the stage as much as possible. Bruno Mars performed Uptown Funk. Coldplay is a good band and they proved it once again on stage.

The final turn was for Beyonce to perform her new song “Formation.” She performed more songs and ended the show with a medley paying tribute to the history of the Halftime show.

Bruno Mars and Coldplay were enough to heat the stage, but the sparkle was missing. This was brought by Beyonce with her presence. Though the audio was not clear, it was still enjoyable.

While the artists did their best to make the Super Bowl Halftime Show stand out, it fell short to expectations. It was not as entertaining as the previous years.
