Beyonce's Super Bowl pride

Beyonce felt "proud" of her Super Bowl performance.

The 34-year-old singer stole the show from headliners Coldplay with an explosive rendition of her new single 'Formation' - which she surprise released on Saturday (06.02.16) - and loved being on stage in front of the audience at the Levi's Stadium in Santa Clara, California, as well as the billions of viewers watching on TV around the world.

She said: "It felt great. It makes me proud."

And Beyonce hopes the song will have a positive impact on her fans' lives.

She told 'Entertainment Tonight': "I wanted people to feel proud, and have love for themselves."

During her performance, the singer and her dancers, clad in black leather bodysuits, also enjoyed a dance off with Bruno Mars, 30, as they sang his hit 'Uptown Funk'.

But despite having a great time, Beyonce insisted the highlight on the event was Coldplay's performance.

She said: "The best part was seeing Coldplay, for me, because I was able to watch from the back."

The British group opened with 'Yellow', followed by 'Viva La Vida', 'Paradise' and 'Adventures of a Lifetime', but they were upstaged by the arrival of Mark Ronson and Bruno, followed by Beyonce.

Coldplay gave a nod to deceased stars including Michael Jackson, Whitney Houston and Clarence Clemons during 'Fix You', before being backed by Beyonce and Bruno to finish with 'Up & Up', from their new album.

The NFL championship game saw the Denver Broncos beat the Carolina Panthers, while Lady Gaga sang the US national anthem.
