Bruno Mars Injects Soul into the Super Bowl Halftime Show

#TaniaOnTheScene - Concert of the Year? That’s what the NFL claimed all week long as it hyped its halftime show with Bruno Mars. But could a relatively young artist without huge name recognition carry the day? Even one of the football commentators came out and said “There were a lot of doubters.” Once Mars was done, though, doubters should have been few.

Two stunts marked the opening of his halftime performance, one slightly less nauseating than the other. It began with a children’s choir and segued into a drum solo performed by Bruno himself. (His lookalike brother, Eric Hernandez — Mars was born Peter Gene Hernandez — took over soon after). But then it was time to break out the gold jackets and skinny ties and launch into “Locked Out of Heaven.” His jumbo band of brass, backup singers and bass put the song across nicely. Not only that, but when they broke into “Treasure,” the synchronized dance moves provided a moment straight out of the Platters, circa 1966.

Then, Bruno started to snarl. “Who you rockin’ with — you rockin’ with the best!” All of a sudden, the man was James Brown, singing “I don’t want to hurt you baby, I just want to work you baby. ” And he gave it his best JB shuffle before a segue into the Red Hot Chili Peppers’ “Give It Away Now.” Instantaneously, lamé jackets gave way to shirtless man flesh as Anthony Keidis, Flea and the rest of RHCP took the stage.
