Beyonce and Bruno Mars Join Coldplay For Super Bowl Halftime Show

(Radio.com) Coldplay began this year's Halftime show in broad daylight, with "Viva la Vida," joined by a string section of kids; from there they were joined by a marching band for Paradise, which quickly went into their recent hit "Adventure of a Lifetime."

Then it was guest star time: Mark Ronson behind the turntables announced that they would go into "Uptown Funk" and Bruno Mars, his dancers and band took over for about a minute; when they said "Stop! Wait a minute!" it was Bey Time." She launched into her brand new song "Formation" - so brand new, it was released yesterday. The turned into a mashup between Bey and Bruno, and then towards the end, Chris Martin joined them for a bit of "Uptown Funk."

Then, the guests left as Coldplay went as Coldplay started "Up and Up," as medley that also dropped a few other songs by past Halftime performers. As the performance ended, a commercial announced Beyonce's upcoming tour, which will surely be one of the can't-miss outings of 2016. Read more here.
