No. 5 - “The Star Spangled Banner”: Jazmine Sullivan and Eric Church apart are great. Together? Meh. (Here’s a Whitney palate cleanser before you continue.)

No. 4 - The commercials: Lots of famous faces, lots of just alright commercials. Good, but none too memorable. In case you missed any, check them all out here.

No. 4 - The commercials: We’re going to need some time before we see Jon Hamm or Michael Bublé again. Check out all the American ads we missed here

No. 3 - “America the Beautiful”: H.E.R.’s vocals were amazing, but the electric guitar solo really made it shine.

No. 2 - Halftime show: Okay, so The Weeknd isn’t JLo or Shakira or Beyoncé. But damn, that halftime show was fun. Weird and fun.

No. 1 - Amanda Gorman: Her pregame poem gave us all the goosebumps. We stan so hard.
