Delmarva’s Opinion on the Big Game’s National Anthem Performance, Halftime Show & Commercials
It seems like the performers for the big game, along with the commercials, get talked about on social media, even more than the game itself. The Morning Crew on 102.5 WBOC with Sarah and Corey asked the listeners their opinion Monday morning on the radio.
Lady Gaga did a wonderful job singing the National Anthem on Sunday night, all decked out in a glittery, red suit with blue nail polish on. Sarah went as far to say this might be up there with one of the most iconic National Anthems sung for the Super Bowl since Whitney Houston.
Yvonne from Berlin said “It was awesome! She’s my girl!” and Sue tweeted us, “She was fantastic!”
Coldplay, Beyonce, and Bruno Mars were all a part of the halftime show. Coldplay sang hits like “Viva La Vida,” “Paradise,” and “Adventure of a Lifetime.” Beyonce sang her new song “Formation” and then had a dance battle with Bruno Mars.
The three sang a collaboration of Coldplay’s “Up & Up” and the audience held up colorful cards that spelled out “Believe in Love” in the stands.
Corey and Sarah loved all the artists in the halftime show, but they didn’t think the three meshed well together. Listener Tracy said, “You’d think for the 50th, there would have been a more epic lineup. Neither artist, including the overrated Beyonce, is epic.”
Thomas said, “It was OK, but I would have like to seen Aerosmith and Run DMC sing Walk This Way” and Skip said, “Coldplay was hijacked.”
Dale tweeted us saying “@WBOC1025 Coldplay was the backup band! Poor Sound!”
The commercials during the big game made a big hit all across social media platforms Sunday night. Sarah and Corey had their first Super Bowl commercial ever as well! Check it out!
They asked listeners what their favorite and least favorite commercials were.
Thomas from Parsonsburg sent us a Facebook Message saying, “Awesome commercial Sarah and Corey! Yours, I think was the best.”
Brandon from Harbeson said, “The Doritos commercial was my favorite.” Mallory from Salisbury said, “The skittles commercial with Steven Tyler was the worst, but the Doritos Commercial was the best!”
Corey’s Mom Lori called in to say that no one remembered to say the Christopher Walken Kia commercial that really made her laugh. Mike from Salisbury said he liked the Turkish Airlines commercial that was a Batman vs Superman preview.
Here are some of the top rated commercials from the big game:
