Digital Spy below rounds up our top five entertaining moments from last night.

There had been whispers, denials and yet more whispers, but after teasing with four solo tracks, Beyoncé was joined by her girls for a run through 'Bootylicious', 'Independent Women (Part 1)' and 'Single Ladies (Put a Ring on It)', proving that if they did get back together for good, they most definitely still have it.
This isn't the first time the lights have gone out at a major sports event, but partway though the Super Bowl - for a whopping 34 minutes - is something else. It seemed to give the 49ers a breather and they rushed back into contention, but couldn't quite catch up. The incident was blamed on a blown transformer.

Jacoby Jones's 108-yard, kick-off return touchdown
