The football season may have just started, but the NFL is already looking ahead to the Super Bowl XLVIII. Over the weekend, it was announced that pop star Bruno Mars will take the stage in front of millions as the Super Bowl Halftime performer on Feb. 2 at MetLife Stadium, reports CBS News York.
For those unfamiliar with the fedora-wearing pop star, he is one of pop’s biggest-selling acts at the moment with a string of No.1 hits to his name including “Locked Out of Heaven,” ”Just the Way You Are” and “Grenade.” His music video for “Treasure” recently won best male video and choreography at the MTV Video Music Awards just last month.
His live performances are nothing to scoff at either. The 27-year-old is highly inspired by R&B acts of the past like Michael Jackson and The Temptations, and reminds many of a young James Brown. Heck, he could even do a spot-on Elvis impersonation at three years old.
