The entire country spent the evening celebrating, but our very own President made the silliest of mistakes.

The biggest date in the sporting calendar rolled around for the 54th time.

And it's safe to say, we've come a long way since January 15, 1967.

The first-ever Super Bowl game kicked off in '67, though it was originally called the “AFL-NFL World Championship Game," which isn't quite as catchy, is it?

The annual championship game has become more than just a sporting spectacle...

Complete with celebrity-studded halftime shows, eye-wateringly expensive ad slots, and of course, some great football to go along with it - there's no doubt the Super Bowl is one of the biggest sporting events of the year.

The game was originally created as part of the merger agreement between the NFL and its rival, the American Football League (AFL).

Originally, the game took place in early to mid-January, but now it takes place on the first Sunday in February due to the current NFL schedule.

The game continually dominates viewing figures...

The Super Bowl frequently tops the ranks as the most-watched broadcast in the U.S. - firmly cementing itself as America's most-watched game.

So much so...

That the 2015 game still holds the title as the most-watched U.S. telecast of all time, with a staggering viewership of 114.4 million, according to CNN. 

And its record-breaking impact stretches across the Atlantic too...

The Super Bowl is one of the most-watched annual sporting events in the world, coming in second to the UEFA Champions League final.

Although there's no doubt that the Super Bowl has become about much more than just the football...

Of course, it's a long-anticipated day for football fanatics, but the annual event has rakes in views from those who don't even care for the sport.

Let's start off with the star-studded half time show.

What traditionally began as a college marching band has transformed into one of the biggest and sought after gigs in the world - with many of our favorite a-listers crossing their fingers that they'll land the job.

Fast forward to now, and several big names have taken to the stage.

The likes of Michael Jackson, Bruno Mars, Lady Gaga, Beyonce, and Prince has performed the lucrative gig.

The ads are another huge part of the event.

And, as of last year, a thirty-second advertising slot would set you back a whopping $5.25 million. Safe to say, the price has skyrocketed over the years.

This year, this price has risen once again...

A 30-second Super Bowl ad will cost companies around $5.6 million - $186,666 per second.

And last night, the world tuned in to watch the highly-anticipated Super Bowl LIV...

Kicking off at 6:30 pm ET, we watched as the Kansas City Chiefs took on the San Francisco 49ers. Kansas City finished 12-4 in the regular season, beating the Houston Texans and Tennessee Titans in home playoff game, while The 49ers, finished 13-3, winning home playoff games over the Minnesota Vikings and Green Bay Packers, Washington Post reports.

The Kobe Bryant tragedy was beautifully commemorated...

Players lined up at the twenty-four-yard lines in a pregame tribute to Kobe Bryant, his daughter Gianna, and the other victims of last weekend’s tragic helicopter crash in Calabasas. A moment of silence was also held along with a touching display.

And the show marked the first time the music icons have ever performed on stage together.

Their performance got everyone talking...

But not in a good way. The singers were accused of lip-syncing and it's safe to say that, despite their eye-popping outfits, the performance was pretty underwhelming.

But of course, amidst the star-studded ads and long-awaited musical offerings, this a game of football...

And only one team can come out victorious.

Kansas City Chiefs won the Super Bowl.

The team swiped the title with a 31-20 win.

Last night's show made history...

Twenty-four-year-old quarterback Patrick Mahomes became the youngest player ever to win both the NFL season Most Valuable Player and the Super Bowl MVP award as well.

It was an incredible win...

And our country, along with the rest of the world, came together to congratulate the team and celebrate their victory.

But, of course, President Trump made a very silly mistake.

via: Twitter

Our President took to Twitter to congratulate the Kansas City Chiefs, but he congratulated the wrong state.

The Kansas City Chiefs are from Missouri, and not Kansas...

And in typical Donald Trump fashion, he soon realized his mistake and deleted the tweet.

The President posted the same tweet, but this time with the correct state...

And people were quick to call out Trump for his silly mistake.

It seems that our President will never learn, will he?

But either way... a big congrats to the Kansas City Chiefs of Missouri!
