OK, it’s only just happened, and everyone is still reeling from the experience, but already people are calling this year’s Super Bowl half-time show the greatest of all time.
Of course, as usual it boasted a serious slew of talented stars, this year led by Dr Dre, as well as a huge evolving stage show.
It’s massive, it’s bizarre, but there’s genuinely nothing like it in the world.
The short medley performance saw Dre joined by Snoop Dogg, Kendrick Lamar, Eminem, Mary J. Blige, and even 50 Cent, who quite literally dropped in from the ceiling unannounced to perform ‘In Da Club’.
As well as that, we saw performances of ‘Lose Yourself’, ‘Next Episode’, ‘California Love’, ‘Alright’, amongst others.
Honestly, it left many people out of breath, saying that it’s the finest performance they’ve ever seen in the middle of the NFL’s showpiece final.
One person tweeted: “Best halftime show ever, it’s over”
Another said: “This halftime show is like when you put on your throwback playlist. Best halftime show in years.”
A third said: “THIS IS THE BEST HALFTIME SHOW EVER HOLY S***”

The show was particularly poignant because it also represents a home-town show for Dr Dre, as well as Snoop Dogg and Kendrick, who are all natives of Southern California, where the SoFi Stadium is located.
When the line-up was announced, Dre said: "The opportunity to perform at the Super Bowl Halftime Show, and to do it in my own backyard, will be one of the biggest thrills of my career,
"I'm grateful to JAY-Z, Roc Nation, the NFL, and Pepsi as well as Snoop Dogg, Eminem, Mary J. Blige, and Kendrick Lamar for joining me in what will be an unforgettable cultural moment."
As far as the match itself is concerned, the Los Angeles Rams took a slender half-time lead over the Cincinnati Bengals, with star receiver Odell Beckham Jr. bagging the game's first touchdown - and making rapper Drake a s*** load of money in the process.
Whilst Drake had wagered a huge amount of Bitcoin on the overall result, he also stuck a side-bet on OBJ to cross the paint at some point in the game.
He duly did within the first quarter, recouping Drake a huge amount of his original stake in the process.
Now, he faces a nervous wait to see if the Rams could get it over the line and bring in his second bet.
