Did you see any familiar faces during the Super Bowl Halftime show on Sunday?

Besides Madonna, Nicki Minaj, Cee Lo Green, M.I.A. and the boys from LMFAO, of course.

About 20 students from the Jordan College of Fine Arts were a part of the 200-voice choir that accompanied the “Queen of Pop.”

The choir also included students from Indiana University, members of the Indianapolis Symphonic Choir and other local singers.

Barred from discussing the details of the show by confidentiality agreements, the group rehearsed in secret throughout Indianapolis preparing for the 12-and-a-half minute set.

When it came time to face the almost 70,000 people in Lucas Oil Stadium, sophomore Molly Anderson said that she was ready.

“The fact that I was so excited outweighed everything else,” Anderson said.

Whether you loved the halftime show or not, it was a capstone to a week of parties, zip-lines and giant Lombardi trophies.

It was  a week that highlighted the Butler community and found students, staff and a certain four-legged mascot brushing shoulders with fame at every corner.
