Bruno Mars To Play Super Bowl XLVIII Halftime Show

It’s official. Bruno Mars will perform at the Super Bowl XLVIII halftime show at the MetLife stadium in East Rutherford, New Jersey on February 2, 2014.

A minute-long trailer chronicling Mars’ rise as childhood Elvis impersonator to global superstar was posted shortly after the announcement to Mars’ YouTube channel. Coincidentally, the Grammy Award winner scored his first five No. 1 singles faster than any male since Elvis Presley, according to Billboard.

The Super Bowl is traditionally the most-watched U.S. television event every year, but the Halftime Show often scores higher ratings than the game itself. Madonna’s 2012 performance currently ranks as the most-watched event in U.S. television history, with over 114 million viewers tuning in. Beyonce’s 2013 performance, the first Halftime sponsored by Pepsi, attracted 110.5 million.
