When it was first announced that Bruno Mars would be performing for this year’s Super Bowl, there was a lot of criticism from audiences as he’s such a newcomer. But people forget, that Bruno is some sort of star in his own league and he showed exactly that during his star-studded performance.
Dressed in a gold jacket, skinny tie and signature 50’s pompadour Johnny Bravo hair, Bruno opened up the show with a patriotic rendition of “Billionaire,” (a track he wrote for Travie McCoy) that featured children singing the chorus, before he appeared on the stage rocking the hell out of some drums.
Shortly afterward, he was joined by his band as he transition into his #1 hit “Locked Out Of Heaven,” followed by “Treasure,” and “Runaway Baby,” where Bruno gave us a mean James Brown shuffle. The Red Hot Chili Peppers came out to perform their 1991 classic “Give It Away” before Bruno ended the show on a sentimental note, dedicating his last performance of “Just The Way You Are” to the men and women who are serving our country.
Congrats Bruno! The show was definitely the best part of the game last night! He has now joined the ranks of Madonna, Prince, Janet Jackson, Michael Jackson, The Rolling Stones and Beyoncé.
