EPIC! So remember when we had that “Who’s the current King of Pop: Bruno Mars or Justin Timberlake?” debate a few months back? A major announcement was just made in efforts to help Bruno take that crown. According to the ESPN & The Associated Press (where the Super Bowl is being held, in MetLife Stadium), Bruno has been chosen as the performer and the announcement will take place as early as tomorrow:
NEW YORK — Grammy-winner Bruno Mars will sing at halftime of the Super Bowl in February, a person familiar with the NFL’s entertainment plans told The Associated Press on Saturday.
The person spoke on condition of anonymity because no announcement had been made. The official word is expected to come at an event in New York’s Times Square on Sunday.
The NFL’s regular season began Thursday, and the first full slate of games is Sunday.
The Super Bowl will be played Feb. 2 at MetLife Stadium in East Rutherford, N.J. Halftime shows have drawn more than 100 million television viewers in the United States alone in past years.
Congrats, Bruno! This is fucking huge and we cannot wait to see what he comes up with. One thing’s for sure: he’s going to put on a fun, killer performance that fans of all genres and eras of music will love.
