With Super Bowl Sunday being the weekend that the American public freaks out on a national scale, the massive influx of corporate events at its NYC epicenter was not surprising, but we didn't expect the enormous amount of musical performances that would ensue. Over the weekend New York metro area was saturated with top tier talent who invaded countless stages outside of MetLife Stadium. And here are a few that you may have missed.
Following a surprisingly stellar Grammy performance, Kendrick Lamar once again joined Imagine Dragons on Saturday Night Live, further proving their dominance as music's new favorite odd couple.
Speaking of Grammy deja vu, Beyonce and Jay Z performed "Drunk In Love" for a pre-Super Bowl party.
And as a special, and unexpected treat Justin Vernon sat in with The Roots on Jimmy Fallon at the 14:45 mark.
"Is there anything more American than America?" rasps Bob Dylan on a Chrysler ad. We ask: "Is there anything more ridiculous than Bob Dylan starring in a car commercial?"
The Foo Fighters performed on Bud Light's norovirus-free Super Bowl cruise ship.
And last but certainly not least, Bruno Mars and the Red Hot Chili Peppers managed to save the Super Bowl from being an extremely over-hyped, head-dropping event.
