Super Bowl LIV — hosted at Hard Rock Stadium in Miami Gardens, Florida — was one for the ages.

Image

The Kansas City Chiefs and the San Francisco 49ers faced off in what was indeed a clash of the titans.

Image

The Kansas City Chiefs’ prolific offence — helmed by quarterback Patrick Mahomes — was set for a showdown with the San Francisco 49ers’ league-leading defence.

Image

Things were dead even through the first half, with the San Francisco’s defence adequately containing Mahomes and both offences breaking through to score on two drives.

Image

And with the score knotted at 10, everyone took a break to enjoy a well-received halftime show from Shakira and Jennifer Lopez.

Image

Shakira rocked the stage with hits like “She Wolf,” “Whenever, Wherever,” and “Hips Don’t Lie.”

Image

While J.Lo pulled out classics like “Jenny From the Block,” “Get Right,” and “Waiting For Tonight.”

Image

Her daughter, Emme Maribel Muñiz, even joined her onstage for a song.

Image

Shakira and J.Lo teamed up to finish off the show with “Let’s Get Loud” and “Waka Waka.”

Image

Then it was back to the action on the gridiron.

Image

The Niners started to pull away in the second half, putting up 17 unanswered points to take a 10-point lead heading into the fourth quarter.

Image

But if we’ve learned anything over the past two NFL seasons, it’s to never count out Patrick Mahomes.

Image

Running back Damien Williams helped lead the Chiefs to three unanswered touchdowns in the fourth quarter to steal a victory from the jaws of defeat.

Image

And Kansas City celebrated accordingly.

Image

Before the confetti started falling, Kansas City wide receiver Sammy Watkins basked in the glory of victory on the sport’s biggest stage

Image

And Mahomes got in on the early celebrations as well.

Image

The third-year quarterback earned Super Bowl MVP honours after leading the Chiefs to a come-from-behind victory in the fourth quarter.

Image

And he was all smiles while hoisting the Lombardi Trophy.

Image

He was emotional as he took in the big moment with head coach Andy Reid.

Image

Sunday night’s victory marked Reid’s first Super Bowl win in his illustrious 21-year head coaching career.

Image

And the ordinarily stoic head coach was uncharacteristically — and justifiably — animated after the victory.

He got a Gatorade bath, as all Super Bowl-winning coaches do.

Image

Then he received props from four-time Super Bowl champion-turned-broadcaster Terry Bradshaw.

Image

And his loved ones were on hand to celebrate the victory by his side — or on his shoulders.

Image

Chiefs outside linebacker Demone Harris spent some time making “confetti angels” after the big win.

Image

As did defensive tackle Derrick Nnadi.

Image

Then he went for a belly slide.

Image

He even had to revive linebacker Demone Harris after the win.

Image

Wide receiver DeMarcus Robinson played in the streamers as well.

Image

Defensive tackle Xavier Williams was overcome with emotion after the win.

Image

And defensive back Armani Watts paused to absorb the gravity of the moment on his own.

Image

While Travis Kelce spent some quality time with the Lombardi Trophy.

Image

Linebacker Dorian O’Daniel was more than ready for his Super Bowl ring.

Image

And Terrell Suggs took in his second career Super Bowl victory with a simple finger point to the sky.

Image

But not everyone was basking in the glory of the big win. 49ers wide receiver Deebo Samuel was caught in the falling confetti while grieving his team’s loss.

Image

And his quarterback was clearly feeling the pain as well.

Image

Jimmy Garoppolo comforted free safety Tarvarius Moore as they walked off the field.

Image

And 49ers head coach Kyle Shanahan wore a solemn look as he made his exit.

Mahomes locked himself in as the face of the NFL’s future with his 286-yard, 2-touchdown performance.

Image

And, for the first time in half a century, the Lombardi Trophy is headed to Missouri.
