Apparently Taraji P. Henson thought Coldplay was Maroon 5 at Super Bowl 50

CHICAGO (FOX 32 News) - Come on, Cookie!

Taraji P. Henson, who plays Cookie on the hit FOX show "Empire" was one of the many celebrities who attended Sunday's Super Bowl matchup between the Denver Broncos and the Carolina Panthers. And, like most ladies, Taraji seemed to really enjoy the halftime show.

When she uploaded a photo of the halftime show, her caption read "YAAAAAS! #maroon5 is life to me! #SuperBowl50 #HappyCamper I am."

But one problem....

Maroon 5 was not one of the halftime performers - Taraji seemed to have mixed up Maroon 5 and Coldplay (who ACTUALLY performed in the halftime show.)

Taraji quickly fixed her mistake and deleted the tweet. She then posted this tweet acknowledging her little mix up:
