Viewers from around the world tuned in to watch the Denver Broncos meet the Carolina Panthers in the Super Bowl 50.

It was a display of sporting excellence but if we’re honest, we were totally in it for the entertainment and of course, the ads.

2016  DID NOT disappoint. Not one bit.

THE ENTERTAINMENT:

First up, the amazing Lady Gaga belted out an emotional performance of the Star Spangled Banner (in a red sequinned pant suit and matching eyeshadow no less) and proved why she is one of the world’s best female vocalists. Lady has some serious pipes. Check her out here:

If Gaga was the entree, then we knew the main course was going to be a show-stopper and my God, it was.

HALF-TIME SHOW:

Coldplay, Bruno Mars and Queen Bey put on a spectacular half-time show…the kind of performance that gives you goosies the size of Smarties.

Levi’s Stadium was turned into a sea of rainbow colour and giant flowers during Coldplays performance, Bruno Mars banged out some serious dance moves during Uptown Funk and Beyonce knocked it out of the park with her new hit, Formation. Viewers were also treated to the ultimate “ladies” vs “fellas” dance-off which was followed by a nostalgic look back at half-time entertainment’s past including Michael Jackson, Whitney Houston, James Brown, Bruce Springsteen, U2 and Stevie Wonder.

Fans were left with a final message, “Believe in Love” which was displayed in colour from the stands.

Get ready to boogie to Bey and Bruno:

Cutest pic of the day was taken by Gwyneth Paltrow. Here is Beyonce’s daughter Blue Ivy Carter and Gwyn and Chris Martin’s daughter Apple walking into the stadium to watch their parents perform.

Kevin Hart is hilarious as an overprotective dad:

Dame Helen Mirren gives it to us straight:

By the way, the Denver Broncos won 24-10.
