Bruno Mars, Super Bowl XLVIII MVP
By RR

As if being Super Bowl XLVIII’s Halftime entertainment wasn’t enough, Bruno Mars made a good case for the title of MVP, drawing a record setting 115.3 million viewers during his electrifying Super Bowl performance. Mars surpassed Madonna’s previous record of 114 million viewers and smashed Beyoncé’s 110.8 million viewers during last year's Super Bowl Halftime Show.

Excitement and curiosity surrounding Bruno Mars performance had been mounting ever since the unprecedented live announcement on FOX NFL SUNDAY’s first broadcast of the 2013 season. It reached a fever pitch when news broke of Mars’ invitation to the Red Hot Chili Peppers to join him onstage at MetLife Stadium on Sunday, February 2nd. 

Bruno kicked off his critically acclaimed performance with an energetic drum solo to “Billionaire”, a hit Mars co-wrote with Travie McCoy (Gym Class Heroes). From there, Mars ripped through a blistering set featuring hit songs “Locked Out of Heaven”, “Treasure”, and “Just the Way You Are”. And, as promised, the Red Hot Chili Peppers joined Mars and the Hooligans for an raucous version of “Give It Away Now”. 

Social media was buzzing throughout the performance and long afterwards with praise for Bruno’s set.

The Pepsi Super Bowl halftime show is broadcast worldwide and is the most-watched musical event of the year. Bruno Mars, Billboard’s 2013 Artist of the Year, has joined the prestigious ranks of legendary halftime performers including Beyoncé, Madonna, The Who, Bruce Springsteen & The E Street Band, Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers, Prince, Paul McCartney, The Rolling Stones, and U2!

Following their success at the Super Bowl, Bruno and his band, The Hooligans, are set to launch the second leg of their sold-out Moonshine Jungle World Tour in North America this summer.
