Pop star Beyonce performed her new song “Formation” for the first time at the Super Bowl halftime show.
The pop star performed the song during the Super Bowl 50 halftime show, joining Coldplay and Bruno Mars, who mixed in bits of his and Mark Ronson’s hit “Uptown Funk.” Eventually, Beyonce, Mars and Coldplay frontman Chris Martin were all singing “Uptown Funk”, reported Variety.
Beyonce’s performance comes one day after she debuted the politically charged music video for the song. The video is set in New Orleans and finds Beyonce on top of a sinking New Orleans police cruiser.
Coldplay, the first act that was announced for the Pepsi spectacle, performed a medley of hits, including “Viva La Vida.” At one point, clips of the most iconic Super Bowl musical moments played, showing footage of Michael Jackson, Whitney Houston, U2 and more.
Coldplay also performed new song “Up&Up,” with Beyonce and Mars alongside. The Pepsi Super Bowl 50 halftime took place at Levi’s Stadium in the San Francisco Bay Area.
