Bruno Mars is set to perform at the Super Bowl XLVIII Halftime Show Feb. 2nd at Metlife Stadium in East Rutherford, NJ.

The L.A. Times broke the news earlier today. The NFL will make the announcement tomorrow.

In recent years, the NFL chose safe acts as the halftime show, such as Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers, The Who, and Bruce Springsteen. The past 2? Not so safe with Madonna and Beyonce.

On Thursday's episode of "What's Up Doc" we were wondering who would be the Super Bowl Halftime Show performer and Bruno Mars did not even cross our minds. We thought with the Super Bowl being in Jersey that Bon Jovi might be high on the NFL's wish list.

We think it is a great choice. Mars has had a lot of ballads as hits. It will have to be heavy with more upbeat numbers like "Locked Out Of Heaven" for sure....-DocFB

Diagnosis: What do you think of Bruno Mars being chosen to perform at the Super Bowl?

  1. Booooooo! Lame.

  2. 1817, he (2007) was before Madonna (2012) and Springsteen (2010)

  3. Not a bad choice. Let’s hope Treasure gets on the set list. I really dig that song.

    Now Prince was sumwhere between Madonna and Springsteen, right? He is/was a safe act as well. I don’t recall nothing racey about his act. If I recall, I read that his show was voted as ONE of the best half time shows ever.

  4. This is an AWESOME chose for the NFL Superbowl Halftime Show because the last 2 years have SUCKED major. I am so Happy to hear this News Great thing are happening for Bruno Mars it’s his time 2 SHINE NOW.

  5. Great choice out of the young current artist out there right now! NFL will def have record numbers of 13-32 yr old audience tuning in with Bruno Mars
