Taraji P. Henson really loved the Pepsi Super Bowl 50 halftime show -- even if she didn't totally realize who was performing right away.

The Empire star, who was at Levi's Stadium in Santa Clara, California for the big game on Sunday, took to Instagram and Twitter after the explosive performance to gush about how much she loves the halftime show headliner: Maroon 5.

"YAAAAAAASSSSSS!!!!! #maroon5 is life to me!!! #superbowl50 #HappyCamper I am," Henson captioned a pic of the show.

The only problem, of course, is that Coldplay rocked the halftime show, not Maroon 5. Maroon 5 were not involved with the performance in any way.

ET's Kevin Frazier caught up with the 45-year-old Golden Globes winner in her luxury suite at the game, where she revealed that the mistake was due to some tasty beverages.

"I don't know if you know how it goes down in the suites," Henson explained. "They put a lot of drinks in there - Kool-Aid, lemonade, iced tea. I mixed it all and I sat there and I'm sitting with people who drank the Kool-Aid as well."

According to Henson, she wasn't really sure who was performing, but she somehow got Maroon 5 in her head. When she asked everybody else in the suite with her, they all agreed that it was, in fact, Maroon 5, so she went with it.

That's when she suddenly got inundated with messages telling her about the mistake.

"Angie Martinez, Mary J. Blige, my cousins, my mother, my grandmother -- everybody's texting me, 'change your post!'" Henson said, laughing. "I [thought] they're mad because I didn't give homage to Beyoncé! I'm like, 'The Beyoncé post is coming!' Then I realized it was Coldplay."

"I'm human. I made a mistake. It happens!" Henson told ET. "Come on! I drank the Kool-Aid!"
