Bruno Mars Halftime Performance: Grade It!

by at .  Updated at . Comments

By selecting Bruno Mars as this year's Super Bowl halftime act, those behind the NFL's biggest game pretty much guaranteed that we wouldn't be adding to our collection of Crazy Celebrity Wardrobe Malfunctions.

But that's okay.

There are few acts in the music business more universally appreciated than Mars, who combines pop with jazz, a smooth voice with show-stopping dance moves, and who was joined at MetLife Stadium today by the Red Hot Chili Peppers.

How did the solo artist and the iconic rock band do as a team?

Pretty darn well, as the show opened with "Locked Out of Heaven” and "Runaway Baby" before the Peppers came in for "Give It Away" and Mars closed with a troop-inspired "Just the Way You Are."

Watch the full performance now and then scroll down for a collection of the other memorable Super Bowl halftime shows:

What grade would you give the Bruno Mars Super Bowl halftime performance?

The audio mix was bad. The light show was so overdone it became distracting. Mars is a fine entertainer but this was far from his best. Terrible audio ruined it. This halftime was a bust. Red Hot Chili's took a bad show and made it worse. This show failed totally. Fitting. The game was lame, even the commercials didn't stand up to past years. However, there were parts of the 4 hour pregame that were quite good. Grade: F.

You've got to be blind cuz he SLAYED that performance. The drum solo, the outfit, that voice, and his group was amazing. The red hot chilli peppers tho was doing nonsense.

@ Go Bruno!

Bruno is very talented. I said that. The audio mix lowered his vocals by far too much. The light show was overdone, distracting from the talented Bruno. RHCP were awful! Okay, I'll raise my vote to a C-. Bruno's portion is an A+ but the total halftime show was not very good.
