Super Bowl 2016 has come and gone. We all know what happened: The Denver Broncos won. Linebacker Von Miller was named MVP. Doritos confused the Internet. Lady Gaga, Beyonce, Coldplay and Bruno Mars all slayed their performances. But we are still not over this much-hyped broadcast. So, here are our picks for the best moments from Super Bowl 2016.
5. The Moment When Lady Gaga’s Eye Shadow Was So On Point It Stole The Show
Lady Gaga’s rendition of the American National Anthem was on point. But not nearly as on point as her glittery eye make-up.
4. Lady Gaga’s Whole Performance, Really
Yes, Internet. The Mother Monster can really sing.
3. The Moment When Beyonce and Bruno Mars Have The Most Epic Dance-Off
Beyonce. Bruno Mars. Uptown Funk. Need we say more?
2. The Moment When Beyonce Nearly Fell…But She Handled it Like The Queen That She Is
As expected, Beyonce’s performance was flawless. But not nearly enough, as Buzzfeed pointed out, she nearly fell in her heels! The alleged slip-up was captured in this Vine. Try to spot the exact moment the Queen fell…before she quickly recovered with the sleekest impromptu choreography.
1. The Moment When Past Half Time Shows Were Remembered
Coldplay, Bruno Mars and Beyonce sang Up & Up, while a montage of past Super Bowl halftime performances was shown. Everyone – from Bruce Springsteen to Katy Perry – was honored.
Some might suggest that Coldplay front man Chris Martin is this year’s Left Shark. This, because they say he “couldn’t keep up” with the high energy of guests Beyonce and Bruno Mars. But we disagree. We still think Chris Martin is awesome. Just as much as his ex wife Gwyneth Paltrow certainly does, anyway. The actress came to the show to support Martin. She brought her daughter Apple and she even baby sat Beyonce’s daughter Blue Ivy.
“Left Shark” refers to one of Katy Perry’s back up dancers when she performed at the half time show last year. The dancer, dressed as a shark, won the Internet with his awkward moves and apparent confusion.
Coldplay might be the Left Shark. But we still think they gave an awesome performance.
