NFL Finds Perfect Halftime Performer in Bruno Mars

Bruno mars halftime show poster Super Bowl organizers finally chose the right person for this year’s halftime show, and that person is none other than Grammy-winning songwriter Bruno Mars, who will perform a mixture of hits from his breakout album Doo-Wops & Hooligans and his equally successful sophomore effort, Unorthodox Jukebox.

I know you’re tired of Michael Jackson comparisons, but it’s hard to argue that he’s not the total package with that voice and those moves and an arsenal of throwback, horn-heavy hits like “Locked Out of Heaven,” “Grenade,” “Treasure” and “Just The Way You Are” after only being in the spotlight for three short years. (Not long by show business standards.)

I’m not going to argue that he hasn’t made some mistakes (cocaine, “The Lazy Song”), but he’s a much more universal and less polarizing choice than say… Madonna.

Bruno, born in Honolulu in the mid-80s to a large musical family of Puerto Rican and Filipino descent, will take the stage at MetLife Stadium in New Jersey on Sunday, February 2, 2014.
