Bruno Mars Asked to Perform, Curate Super Bowl 50 Halftime Show

  /  09.09.2015

Bruno Mars may be coming back to halftime. According to Billboard (via EW), the NFL has asked the “Uptown Funk” singer to headline next year’s Super Bowl 50 halftime show, only two years after his performance in 2013.

This time, though, he’ll be bringing special guests with him. Billboard’s source claims that Mars was asked to “curate” the performance, meaning any number of guests could make an appearance.

“Myself and our producer, Ricky Kirshner, were both personal fans of Bruno and had seen him in concert and knew what he could do,” NFL director of media events Sarah Moll told Billboard in December. “And it was a lot of just telling folks here and getting folks excited about Bruno and taking them to shows and letting them see what he could do. And that’s kind of what got it going.”

Mars’ previous halftime performance, which featured Red Hot Chili Peppers, drew 115 million viewers, becoming the second-highest halftime viewership following Katy Perry’s last year (121 million viewers).

Reps for Mars and the NFL have yet to respond to the reports.

Super Bowl 50 will take place on Feb. 7, 2016 at Levi’s Stadium in Santa Clara, Calif.
