Super Bowl 50 is finally here! There is so much more that goes into this epic broadcast than just the football game itself, and we’ve rounded up all the biggest moments from one of TVs biggest nights. Check ’em all out here!
From amazing performances to epic plays and fun celebrity sightings, the Super Bowl really has it all! With Cam Newton, Peyton Manning, Beyonce, Lady Gaga so many more under one roof, there was no doubt that the 2016 game would be a big one, and everyone totally delivered. Relive the night’s best moments here!
Things started off beautifully when the Armed Forces sang an incredible rendition of “America The Beautiful” with actress Marlee Matlin performing the song in sign language. Literally got chills watching this one — especially when cameras cut to a shot of the men and women serving our country in Afghanistan.
And, of course, Gaga absolutely slayed while singing the National Anthem for the Kickoff Show….as if we would expect anything less! She looked beyond stunning in a sparkling red pantsuit and her matching eye shadow was ON POINT. Seriously, who could pull off bright red shadow like that except for her?! And can we talk about THAT VOICE?! The whole thing was absolutely breathtaking. The crowd went totally wild as she hit all the right notes, and Gaga just couldn’t wipe the huge smile off her face as she thoroughly enjoyed herself throughout the whole thing.
As for game play, things were crazy right from the first quarter! Trailing 3-0, Panthers’ QB, Cam, was sacked by the Broncos’ outside linebacker, Von Miller, allowing Malik Jackson to recover the fumbled football and score a touchdown. With a solid extra point kicked, the score was up to 10-0 just halfway through the 1st — not what we’re used to seeing from the Panthers!
Obviously the halftime show was one of the biggest moments of the evening. Coldplay kicked the event off with a medley of their hits, and then threw it to Bruno Mars, who really got the crowd going by singing his song “Uptown Funk.” And then, of course, the moment we were all waiting for — Queen Bey!! She totally NAILED her performance of her new hit “Formation” in the center of the field, and then had the most epic dance-off with Bruno to the beat of “Uptown Funk.” The trio closed off the show altogether, singing to Coldplay’s “Up&Up” while reminiscing on previous halftime shows with throwback video clips. AMAZING!
Of course, we also can’t forget the epic commercials that aired during the broadcast — from ads starring celebs like Ryan Reynolds, Christopher Walken and SO many more, the entertainment never stopped throughout the full four hours. And we have to mention the amazing celeb sightings in the crowd, too! Gwyneth Paltrow was there to support her ex and baby daddy, Chris Martin, and she even babysat little Blue Ivy while Bey performed. Nina Dobrev, Julianne Hough, Ryan Seacrest, Nick Jonas and so many more were also in attendance — so fun!
