It was announced today that Bruno Mars is slated to perform at next year’s Super Bowl Halftime. There has been speculation for weeks about who would be a good fit, especially following Beyonce’s electrifying performance this year. Names like Justin Timberlake, Katy Perry & Jay Z were discussed as good candidates. I personally thought Pink would be good.
Hearing Bruno announced was surprising for a few reasons:
1. He’s still kinda of a new artist. Artists who perform at halftime usually have a big catalog of music. Bruno is only 2 albums in.
2. Bruno is a good performer, but i don’t know about his ability to fill the halftime stage. Bruno almost got swallowed up on the VMA stage. He won’t be able to bop along, hit a couple of smooth dance moves, & work the mic stand. He has a great band, but he’ll need a much larger presence & more elaborate stage settings to pull off Super Bowl.
I feel like there were much better choices that could have been made. I guess we’ll just have to see what Bruno has in store.
What do you think about Bruno Mars as halftime performer? Yay or nay?
