Bruno Mars made his much anticipated performance at the Super Bowl halftime event last night at Metlife Stadium. Mars performed many of his hit songs along with his band, The Hooligans, including "Billionaire," "Treasure," "Runaway Baby," and "Locked Out of Heaven."
Mars kicked off the halftime show by wowing the audience in New Jersey with his mastery of the drums.
When the 28-year-old vocalist performed "Runaway Baby," he channeled his best Michael Jackson and James Brown impressions as he danced the night away during his Super Bowl intermission musical performance.
Then he performed with legendary rock band the Red Hot Chili Peppers. Mars sang the group's classic hit, "Give It Away," along with the band, including lead singer and lyricist Anthony Kiedis and bass guitarist Flea.
Mars ended his Super Bowl performance by singing one of his signature songs, "Just the Way You Are," after the LA rock band exited the stage.
Mars has sold more than 115 million singles internationally. He joined a select few superstar musicians who have formerly performed on the stage at the Super Bowl halftime spectacle. Other performers in recent years have included Beyonce and her special reunion with Destiny's Child last year, Madonna, Paul McCartney, U2, Bruce Springsteen & The E Street Band, Prince, Justin Timberlake with Janet Jackson, and The Rolling Stones to name a few.
