She’s also just marked her place on the throne of pop music with a Super Bowl halftime show that left Chris Martin and the rest of the Coldplay lads in her shadow.

Coldplay kicked things off with a trio of tunes, before Bruno Mars provided a much-needed buffer with a performance of (surprise surprise) Uptown Funk.

The New York Times describes Beyoncé as giving Coldplay a “much needed assist”, while The Guardian says she “effortlessly stole the Super Bowl halftime show from right under Coldplay’s noses”. Beyoncé and Bruno Mars performing together “brought screaming jolts of soul and funk and jubilation onto a stage that until that point had lacked all of those things“.

The critics of Twitter agreed…

Who run the world indeed.
