WATCH: Beyoncé Busts Out Politically Charged ‘Formation’ at Super Bowl Halftime Show

The halftime show at Super Bowl 50 on Sunday was a well-executed affair, as Coldplay was joined onstage by Bruno Mars and Beyoncé, who performed her new single “Formation” a day after releasing its politically-charged music video.

Coldplay ran through a number of their most recent hits including “Viva La Vida” and “Paradise” and were then joined by 2014’s Super Bowl halftime headliner Bruno Mars, who delivered a fresh take on his mega-hit “Uptown Funk.”

Next to join in was Beyoncé, who performed “Formation” — the video of which Breitbart’s Jerome Hudson calls “a big wet kiss to Black Lives Matter” — while being accompanied by an all African-American dance crew and managing to slickly avoid what could have been an embarrassing fall:

Beyoncé, Mars, and Coldplay’s Chris Martin capped the show by leading a sing-along to the band’s “Fix You” as a montage of previous Super Bowl performers, including Michael Jackson, Prince, and Bono — and notably, not Justin Timberlake or Janet Jackson — played on in the background.

Immediately after the show, Beyoncé announced a 40-date Formation Tour, with shows in North America, the UK, and Europe, set to begin April 27.
