Bruno Mars Meets the Press at Super Bowl Halftime Show Conference

Bruno Mars

Bruno Mars will join an illustrious list of past performers including Beyoncé, Madonna, and Michael Jackson when he takes the field during the Pepsi Halftime Show at Super Bowl XLVIII.

Ahead of Sunday’s game, the Grammy-winning crooner charmed reporters, old and young, with his Spanish and Elvis impression during the press conference at Jazz at Lincoln Center in New York City on Thursday.

The first question came from Michelle Williams, reporting for “The Insider.” The Destiny’s Child singer, who performed with Beyoncé at last year’s show, asked him what his reaction was when he heard he would be performing.

“Some greats have been on this stage and we’re just excited that we’re getting this shot,” said Bruno, who joked about coming well equipped with “three gallons of hairspray.”

He just began rehearsals two nights ago at New Jersey’s freezing cold MetLife Stadium. While he wouldn’t give away details, he did offer a teaser.

“I hope to get people dancing and people smiling,” he told one reporter. “If you ever come to one of our shows, it’s just us up there with these songs and our instruments. I’m hoping that’s enough.”

He will also share the stage with the legendary Red Hot Chili Peppers. “I’ve been a fan of theirs for such a long time. I admire their career,” said Bruno. “They’re a soulful band and not just musically, as people.”

    @Yas., you’re literally insane. He’s not a good performer. It’s always the same suit matching with his ban running around playing the trumpets with the same dance moves and overrated music. Going to be the worst halftime show ever
