Is it possible that Bruno Mars could find a way to dip right back into the insane waters of the Super Bowl once again? Based on some of the reports that are floating around out there, it definitely looks like it.
As first mentioned by Entertainment Weekly, Mars is in discussions once again to perform the Halftime Show, this time at the landmark Super Bowl 50 taking place in Santa Clara, California on February 7. He obviously had an enormous hit recently as a featured act in Mark Ronson’s “Uptown Funk,” and there is more big music probably coming for him soon.
So why bring back Bruno at this particular point in time? We feel like it really comes down to mass market appeal. Not only is he a really great singer, but he is a dynamic performer that appeals well to a very wide audience in the way that many classic artists did. Katy Perry performed at the Halftime Show earlier this year, and aside from a certain headline-making shark, the majority of it was very entertaining. This is all about the spectacle, and you need someone out there who understands that.
If Bruno is in fact chosen to do the Halftime Show once again, we imagine that he will be joined by someone else with a large following. The first time he performed during Super Bowl XLVIII, he was joined by none other than the Red Hot Chili Peppers. It’s always a cool move to mix a little bit of classic music with something that is new and modern.
Do you think that Bruno is the right person to host again, even though it has been so soon since the last time? Sound off in the comments below, and head over here to get some more news on all we cover via our CarterMatt Newsletter. (Photo: NBC.)
