Beyoncé to Join Coldplay For Super Bowl 50 Halftime Show

Queen Bey is back for her throne: Beyoncé will join Coldplay on stage during the Super Bowl 50 halftime show on Feb. 7, according to Entertainment Tonight. The band will presumably play "Hymn for the Weekend," according to ET, with accompanying vocals by Beyoncé. 

Coldplay frontman Chris Martin said headlining the Super Bowl is "the greatest moment of our band's life" in an interview with ET shortly after it was revealed they would be performing. 

Beyoncé isn't the only guest slated for the evening: Rumors have been circulating that Bruno Mars will also be in attendance. If history is any indication, fans can expect plenty of surprise performers. In 2013, Beyoncé headline Super Bowl XLVII — and was joined by former Destiny's Child members Kelly Rowland and Michelle Williams. 

The Bey Hive was quick to react on Twitter to the news Beyoncé would be performing.


Super Bowl 50 will air live from Levi's Stadium in Santa Clara, California on CBS.
