Bruno Mars Super Bowl Halftime Show

Bruno Mars, Bruno Mars Super Bowl Halftime Show

It has become tradition and a huge honor for a performer to be selected for the Super Bowl Halftime Show. This year, singer – songwriter Bruno Mars took the gargantuan task and promised to “give it all he’s got.” And boy, did he give a lot.

First, it was a quiet start with a children’s choir singing a few lines from ‘Billionaire’, ending with the words, …’the world better prepare’. The spotlight then shifted to none other than Bruno Mars himself, performing an adrenalin pumping drum solo. He soon joined the stage, singing with a brass show band, dancing and grooving to ‘Locked Out of Heaven’. The stage was bathed in yellow gold light as Mars, his band and his back-up singers were dressed to the nines in glittering golden jackets.

He continued to thrill with cool dance moves that mirrored groups from the 60s as he sang his hit song, ‘Treasure’. This he segued with a line from James Brown, “I don’t want to hurt you baby, I just want to work you baby.”, revealing another amped up performance from Red Hot Chili Peppers. True to form, the RHCP crew were shirtless which gave a stark contrast to Mars and his group who wore suits. It worked however, and soon both even the audience was on their feet, filling the stands, moving to the music.

As the period was nearing the end, Bruno turned sentimental, giving way to a video of US soldiers who were from their family. He capped his electrifying performance with a slow and maudlin song, ‘Just the Way You Are.’

Lest we forget to mention, the lights and fireworks committee gave a spectacular arrangement too. The kaleidoscope of colors was fantastic and the fireworks were so well timed. Great job, NFL and Bruno!
