The highly anticipated Super Bowl 50 will air Sunday Feb. 7 on NBC, and this year they’re offering up some major star power. The NFL confirmed on Tuesday that Lady Gaga will perform the National Anthem. Coldplay and Beyoncé are set to wow the crowd during the halftime show. There are also rumors that there will be a few surprise guests, with some speculating that Beyoncé’s husband Jay-Z will join her on the stage.

But football and music aren’t only things that fans look forward to this time of year — the Super Bowl commercial has become a time-honored tradition that continues to attract millions of avid viewers from all across the globe.
