Some people were skeptical about the announcement that Coldplay will serve as the Super Bowl 50 halftime show entertainment in February. However, Hamish Hamilton (the mastermind director behind the Oscars and VMAs of the past) has no doubt that the band will nail the gig. 

Speaking with Billboard, Hamish confidently admitted that he thinks the band will "surprise a lot of people." "They write great music. They're great performers. They're great individuals. They're a great band, and I think they and their energy and their positivity will surprise a lot of people in a very positive way," he continued.

Still, Hamish didn't reveal whether former Super Bowl headliner Beyoncé will take the stage as a special guest. "Everybody can hope lots of things for Super Bowl Sunday, and one of the great things about Super Bowl Sunday is that everybody has their own hopes, opinions and dreams, but obviously only a certain number of those dreams can come alive," he vaguely explained. "I'm not gonna be the guy who tells you that Santa Claus isn't real."

Considering Bey appeared on their most recent album, A Head Full of Dreams, and was recently caught filming a secret video down at the Mercedes-Benz Superdome in New Orleans, we can't help but wonder.
