Bruno Mars’ star is shining bright and it looks like things are about to get even brighter. He’s expected to be announced as the performer for the 2014 Super Bowl Halftime Show!
While Bruno is quite the entertainer, this one comes as a bit of a surprise. But according to sources who spoke with the Los Angeles Times, said the big announcement could come as soon as Sunday (this is week one of the 2013-2014 NFL season). If he gets the gig as the big act for the Super Bowl Halftime Show, his stock would easily skyrocket through the roof. The Super Bowl is one of the most watched sporting events.
The Times says that neither the NFL nor Fox (they carry the Super Bowl on their station for all of you non-sportsnistas) would comment on Bruno taking the stage by storm, but an NFL spokesman did say that both Miley Cyrus and Janet Jackson have been “ruled out as performers.”
They still have Janet “jokes,” huh? Moving on.
The 2014 Super Bowl will be taking place in New Jersey at the Met Life Stadium, home to both the New York Giants and New York Jets, and since that announcement, there’s been a lot of talk about what local is big enough and current enough to hold down that stage. Bruce Springsteen is almost always in that conversation but he likely wouldn’t be able to keep the attention of younger viewers. So it looks like they completely scrapped the idea of a local act and just went with someone who could likely please everyone
There’s something about Bruno Mars and his shows that makes people of any age love him. He appears to be charismatic, put on an electric show and almost always sounds great. His Moonshine Jungle tour has received rave reviews and there’s no doubt that if he kicked it up a few notches, his show would be perfect for a 15 minute performance on the Super Bowl Halftime Show.
His career is still in its semi-early stages but he just might be ready for this.
What do you think? Would you be excited to see Bruno Mars as the performer during the 2014 Super Bowl Halftime Show?
