Bruno Mars Scores Most-Watched Super Bowl Halftime Show Ever

Bruno Mars

While the Seattle Seahawks took home the Vince Lombardi trophy at Sunday’s Super Bowl, Bruno Mars celebrated his own victory. The “Treasure” singer’s Halftime Show attracted the largest audience in Super Bowl history.

A whopping 115.3 million viewers tuned in to see Bruno rock New Jersey’s MetLife Stadium with the Red Hot Chili Peppers on Sunday, according to Fox (via Billboard).

That number exceeds the prior record of 114.0 million set by Madonna in 2012 and the 110.8 million who watched Beyoncé perform in New Orleans last year.

The game itself broke records, becoming the most-watched event in U.S. television history with an average of 111.5 million viewers.

Bruno’s performance earned rave reviews on social media. “Wow @BrunoMars just killed it at the Super Bowl!!!” tweeted Kelly Clarkson, while Tamar Braxton added, “This is an AMAZING Half time SHOW!!”

The 28-year-old crooner also made history by becoming the youngest artist ever to serve as the sole Super Bowl Halftime headliner.

    Don’t hype this guy pointless. It was because of the game not because of him. I would do it much better.

    @Justin Timberlake, Seriously though, of course views will increase each year, it’s only logical. Not to discredit Bruno. Perhaps this could also be because, Bruno appeals to the underage masses and managed to pull their votes as well as the usuals. Solid performance, and now that Bruno has solidified himself within the industry, it’s almost impossible for him to fail anytime soon. Amped for his third album; More Treasure, less generic Millionaire!

    @Mandela Barb, Sorry but the Super Bowl of 2012 had more viewers than 2013. So no they don’t increase every year. Madonna had more viewers than Beyonce, and less than Bruno.

    @Justin Timberlake, U R a pathetic idiot, and I dont believe the real Justin is so selfish and ignorant that he cant be happy for someone else’s success. You sound like a dirty selfish beyonce, JZ troll to me.

    @Speechless, DEAD at the fact that beyonce and her fans/stans stay on your mind! why would the hive be mad? beyonce had the third most viewed halftime show. and let’s keep it 100%, the games for the past 4-5 years have sucked including this one. however ALOT of the viewers tuned in to see manning thinking that the game was going to be a close one and NOT the blow out that it was. beyonce is winning in life … when bruno sells an over a million albums in 12 days w/ NO promo, come see me. #byefelicia

    @karamelkisses, she’s 3rd most watch for a reason: because she only appeals to girls. No guy would be pumped up singing “single ladies” like, be real! Bruno Mars is a guy, performing for a male audience. What he did with The Red Hot Chilli Pepper was a smart move. Like, what will get you more pumped up than throwing in some testosterone music? #diefelicia

    @Major Sushi, suck a fat dick! she’s a beautiful woman and what man (gay or straight) wouldn’t want to look at her gyrating during the game’s interlude? either way both beyonce & bruno did very well during their sets. the NFL invites the best in their genres to perform during halftime. but where is your fave at? she couldn’t and wouldn’t score an invite if she paid for one. #nightnight

    @karamelkisses, I don’t have a fave, cuz I don’t obsess over celebs like Behives, Navy, and Barbz, do. Fact remains is that all Football fans know the Red Hot Chilli Peppers. They’re a classic rock band. And no, I don’t want to see your mom’s fat cock. That’s nasty.

    @Speechless, Why would we be mad? I’m a huge Beyonce fan and her performance was one of the best Super Bowl halftime shows of all times. Bruno Mars performance was awesome too. End of story. Nothing more here.

  5. The Truth

    Bruno Mars is the real deal. He has that old time flavor and showmanship like James Brown and
    Frankie Lymon. He appeals to all ages.

    wait … bruno’s mother died in november/december. then he scored “the most viewed halftime show” ever. where are the illuminati claims? or is that just applicable to successful black people (jay, bey, ri, ye, drake, etc)?

    karamelkisses Reply:

    @BEDSTUYFLY, what’s funny? only the cream of the crop (diana, mj, beyonce, madonnna, bruno, etc)is invited to perform at halftime shows. where’s rihanna? ooops, they need performers NOT stiff, non-singing wannabe’s talking in lieu of singing while staggering across the stage. #youarmymemberscanpayforthatgarbage

    @anonymous, That’s why it’s posted here, right? Your commenting that it means nothing means nothing either. Ironic, no?

    Setting a record is ALWAYS something. Try again.
