Well they're both soulless pop sellouts, so I don't blame her, really. Colour me unsurprised that the same Coldplay who just released by far their worst album managed to fuck up a Super Bowl spot.

Genuinely curious, what did you guys watch? I watched Beyoncé just dancing and singing Uptown Funk.
I just meant that she gains more from it, she released a new single yesterday and announced an stadium tour after her appearance at the halftime show. I was expecting Coldplay to kinda do that for their tour

Coldplay really got the shitty end of the stick for this halftime show.

If they wanted to do a retro-throwback type show, DO THAT! Have Springsteen, Bruno, Beyonce, Madonna, U2, whoever the hell will show up, and have a 50th anniversary retro show.

This show tried to be too many things. The big explosion at the beginning of the coda of "Fix You" is a BIG moment at a Coldplay concert, like when the lights come on for Streets. But what were they showing instead at that moment? Footage of Springsteen from 7 years ago! It's just too bad, because this was Coldplay's chance to show America that they do have the chops to be a stadium band. Instead they ended up looking like the awkward, nerdy white guys at a black fraternity party. (Yes the movie Road Trip is what I'm basing that on).

This pic of Bono from the 2002 Superb Owl Halftime rehearsal is awesome.

Coldplay might have gone over better if Chris had been less pitchy. He's never been a good singer live.

I thought it was super entertaining aside from the fact that I hate Uptown Funk.

Gaga belted out a pretty good version of the national anthem.

In terms of the halftime show, Beyoncé and Bruno saved the day. Coldplay was surprisingly underwhelming.

I thought Coldplay did great and wish they had not included Beyonce and Bruno Mars in the show, as it took time away from Coldplay. I enjoy a good four piece rock band. Bruno Mars could have done something similar, but chose to go the dance pop way.

Beyonce was a disaster. Looking and dancing like a stripper at a nightclub has little to do with music.

Coldplay's performance was the closest to U2's performance from 14 years ago at the Super Bowl, while Beyonce's was the furthest from it.

If that is your 65th and last post I'll be very happy.
