The Super Bowl halftime show is one of the most anticipated parts of the game.

This year’s Super Bowl performance was led by Coldplay, who performed mashups of old favourites such as “Yellow”, “Paradise” and “Viva La Vida” as well as a rendition of “Fix You” accompanied by a montage of past performers including Michael Jackson and Katy Perry.

But the show has been met with mixed responses.

While some were blown away by the show this year, especially when Beyoncé and Bruno Mars — who have both performed in the Super Bowl halftime break before — took to the stage in an epic dance-off. But the montage of past performances didn’t go down so well, with some describing the show as something like a “school project” and it was all “a bit too nuts” for poor Piers Morgan.

Here’s a look at some of the responses below.

Many people were impressed by the performance this year…
