The Collaboration of Beyonce, Coldplay and Bruno Mars
From Beyonce and Bruno totally owning the stage to Chris Martin joining them, there was a slight drop. It almost felt as if he was a dad getting up to dance too early at a wedding. As Beyonce and Bruno oose such sass Chris looks slightly odd in the middle of these 2 legends.
