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?
What will Beyonce have in common with The Rolling Stones, Prince, Bruce Springsteen, Madonna, & The Black Eyes Peas? She will have performed at the Super Bowl Halftime Show next year!
Beyonce made it official tweeting out the photo above with the date of Feb. 3rd, 2013, when Super Bowl XLVII will be played.
So I guess we can expect Jay Z to perform as well. We wonder what other surprises Beyonce will have up her dress.-DocFB
Diagnosis: Very Interesting Choice, NFL.....
Two days since the "official" confirmation of Madonna performing at the Super Bowl, some people are speaking out against her being chosen.
Rocker and KISS frontman Gene Simmons was asked by TMZ about Madonna being chosen as the Super Bowl halftime show act and he was not pleased.
"I love all karaoke singers. "I like all the girl singers who get up and sing with tapes. Shame on you. You've got to have some integrity. "I don't care what your music is. Have some integrity -- be real or full disclosure before the fact. Hold up a sign saying, 'Seventy percent of what you hear is fake. It's a tape. I'm a karaoke singer.' Say it!'
"She isn't"appropriate" for the halftime show."
Interesting. As we told you months ago, Madonna was goign to be the Super Bowl act. You would figure someone saying Madonna was not appropriate for the Super Bowl, it would be about her clothing and another Janet Jackson incident, not her music.
What do you think? Does Gene Simmons have a point that Madonna will lip synch the Super Bowl and not perform live?-DocFB
Diagnosis: Very interesting stance by Gene......
