In a surprise move, Bruno Mars has reportedly been picked to perform at Super Bowl XLVIII in New Jersey on Feb. 2. The “Just The Way You Are” singer is definitely an under-the-radar pick.
Though Bruno isn’t a local NYC pick, as many were hoping for, the reactions on Twitter have been mostly positive! “Bruno Mars will be performing for the Super Bowl half time show!!! Freakn’ excited!!,” @_Valery tweeted.
@LOSTlund12 tweeted, “i love bruno mars. if he’s doing the super bowl, i am one happy man.” And @fedeleeee was definitely excited, tweeting, “BRUNO MARS IS GONNA PERFORM AT THE SUPER BOWL.”

@mattbarrows also tweeted, “Bruno Mars? Super Bowl halftime show? As long the lights stay on, I’m cool with it. …”
Although this decision hasnt gone without criticism
@troy_anderson tweeted, “Bruno Mars doing the Super Bowl Halftime show?… *sigh* I knew after Beyonce they would go back to screwing us over,” and @XavierLeeds wrote, “How the Super Bowl go from Beyonce to Bruno mars? He’s not a terrible artist but that’s a downgrade.”
And then there were the straight up haters. “Bruno mars is doing the superbowl halftime show! Why cant the nfl pick someone good for one?!,” @RCcooley96 tweeted.
And @STxV wrote, “I’d rather see Bon goddam Jovi than Bruno Mars.”
