The Super Bowl Halftime show lineup/announcements are typically a big to do-(especially since social media).
Although Coldplay was announced in December (2015) as the February 7 shows headliner, it seemed to have received a lukewarm response and rang no alarms.
Running up to save the play is non other Ring The Alarm powerhouse performer Beyonce who, all of media just got word will be joining the her Tidal mate to save the day.
In case yous didn’t know-Beyonce is featured on Coldplay’s new album “A Head Full of Dreams” where she’s featured on a song called Hymn for the Weekend; making that song the likely song of choice.
Last year’s headliner, Katy Perry (featuring Missy Elliott and included Lenny Kravitz) was the most watched Super Bowl Halftime performance in history.
The shows 2014 headliner Bruno Mars and the Red Hot Chilli Peppers blew the roof off-giving quite and electrifying performance.
The NFL has been cracking down on racy performances for quite some time now given the annual, live, family television event yet, over the past 5 years or so, the show’s 15 minute Halftime Shows have become been just as much an anticipated part of the show as the commercials in between as the Super Bowl game itself. They all go hand in hand these days.
So while the NFL treads lightly with ‘family safe’ music programming for its halftime picks, they’ve got their work cut out for them in picking artists like all who over the years, rocked.
For the record, as a fan of Chris Martin/Coldplay, they rock…but rocking Superbowl Halftime in 15 minutes is a whole different ball game.
Super Bowl 50 takes place (live) at Levi’s Stadium in Santa Clara, California on Sunday, February 7, 2016 on CBS.
