Moments ago, Bruno Mars brought his unique brand of electricity to the MET Life Stadium during his much-hyped Super Bowl 2014 Half-Time spectacle.

The Grammy winning superstar was joined by rockers the Red Hot Chili Peppers during the must see showing, which follows Beyonce’s mega-watt performance last year.

A worthy follow-up, watch Mr Mars show and prove after the jump….


Amazing. Not Beyonce. Not Madonna. But amazing nonetheless.

    #Downgrade

  2. MC!!! February 2, 2014

    now thats what i call musicianship at best!!! he did a good job leaving me wanting more!! He took it back to “off the wall” days. Best halftime in years! and brought back some rock which was missing these few years in football!

  3. NT February 2, 2014

    Bruno did amazing , he’s no Beyonce but he did the best of his ability and The Red Hot Chilli Peppers were a great touch , it looked like he was having genuine fun.

  4. Iconic Cici February 2, 2014

    Sorry it was ok but i got bored with it fast..

  5. Just Sayin February 2, 2014

    It was ok. Nothing to cry home about but well done to him. To do Superbowl this early is big.

  6. Mileys movement February 2, 2014

    Beyonce kept my attention,Bruno did not.

  7. Touché February 2, 2014

    It was nice. I like more instrumental based performances like that. Prince will always be the best to me but Bruno was alright. Also, was there something wrong with the mic when the Red Hot Chili peppers came on? I could barely hear their voices or the lyrics.

  8. ZANIA February 2, 2014

    This is a Beyonce and Rihanna blog so their not going to give him credit. The whole world disagree, Its been a long time since I seen so many positive tweets for an artist, I really didn’t see no bad tweets, most people were saying this was the best Superbowl performance in years, real talent, he sing, dance and played music, The families of America is proud, their children didnt have to close their eyes. Great Job Bruno.

  9. madBrax February 2, 2014

    so much better than that stripper with a mic last year! at least he sang longer than .37 seconds and let his back up singers sing the rest. he didn’t need to use his tits and ass to distract the fact that he’s boring. cause he’s a real musician unlike thiefonce

  10. Mileys movement February 2, 2014

    @Zania STFU

  11. Naomi February 2, 2014

    This was ok. It will not go down in history as one of the best though. It will fade like Black Eyed Peas. Of course he wasn’t going to be better than Beyonce and Madonna LOL. But good job to him.

  12. Mileys movement February 2, 2014

    Rather watch Stripperyonce then Boreuno

  13. Yea ok February 2, 2014

    I was bored. If u seen one Bruno performance u seen them all. I knew his band groupies would be up there.

    Will I watch this 117 times on repeat like I did beyonce last year? Absolutely not. One time was enough.

    *plays Super Bowl halftime show 2013*

  14. Starships February 2, 2014

    BORING! Janet getting her tittie pulled out was more entertaining than this!

  15. SLAYRIAH CAREY (TOUR DE FORCE) February 2, 2014

    This half-time show performance is so much better than last year’s.

  16. NICKI IS QUEEN OTHER B****** TAKE A SEAT February 2, 2014

    He did a good job.

  17. My Forehead Tho February 2, 2014

    The performance was great. I don’t see it making any “Superbowl greatest…” list, but it was really good. Glad he proved the majority of Twitter, who said he looked a Puerto Rican lesbian and thought he was untalented, wrong.

    My only criticism is that I wish he would have waited like 5 more years so the majority of the people watching him would have known who he was.

  18. Yonce shits on Mooriah February 2, 2014

    @cthagod: They should have just replayed Beyonce’s Super Bowl halftime performance from last year.

  19. Trace February 2, 2014

    Eh..Not Better than Beyonce’s or Madonna’s
    Why? Madonna takes the Production vote, While Beyonce takes pretty much else, vocal,dancing etc

    Let Me make this clear,I didn’t say that to undermine his. Bruno is one of the last true male vocalist we have in this era. It’s just it was a little tame.

    How on God’s green earth can a Miley Cyrus stan be talking about Beyonce! Beyonce>Miley in every performance,every vocal performance,on all fronts!

    Also sheesh,why do people coming to this blog if all they ever do is complain about it. Some people need to take some prozac and chill out. It should be illegal to be so pressed! Anyway best half-time show in years my balls,taint and a***! it was just ok

  20. Yonce shits on Mooriah February 2, 2014

    That performance would be cute for the Grammys but Superbowl it was so dry and forgettable.

  21. Brandys Starr February 2, 2014

    Overall it was forgettable but good. Beyonce is of course a tough act to follow I literally could not take my eyes of the screen with her show. But kudos to Bruno.

  22. madBrax February 2, 2014

    sorry still better than Yawnce last year. I can go to any strip club and see the same performance

  23. My Gums Tho(aka Teacher) February 2, 2014

    Much better than last year! Only good part from last year was the DC segment! It would’ve been epic had she fallen off stage and broke her neck!

  24. Netta the great February 2, 2014

    it was a stellar performance. i love beyonce too, but come on now stop bringing her up. bruno is one of the best male performers of todays. did yall expect him to come out in heels and a sparkly dress while twerking or something? he knows his lane and he owns it. well done, bruno!

  25. FutureCIARA February 2, 2014

    Thats right Husband….. Slay these lessors… Justin/Usher/Drake/Jason/

    Well done!

    #LegendaryMaterial!!!

  26. Molly February 2, 2014

    Kinda forgettable but it was better then watching a stripper and her peasants last year.

  27. Mwah February 2, 2014

    People need to stop deluding themselves. Beyonce is in another league of performing. Theres no need to compare. Bruno did good nonetheless.

  28. Netta the great February 2, 2014

    @futureciara watch it. USHER and jt are superior to bruno.

  29. Theman February 2, 2014

    Y’all are out of y’all mine. This performance is way better than last yrs.. Musically and
    Artistically he did a superior job.. Beyonce fans of course are naturally gonna hate.. Lol This was the best Super Bowl performance in yrs..

  30. Yonce Yall February 2, 2014

    Do you realize that any halftime performance will forever get compared to BEYONCE’S ?? She set the record so high it’s ridiculous.

  31. Revolution February 2, 2014

    Well he is no Beyonce but well done Bruno!

  32. ZANIA February 2, 2014

    @theman,I agree with you and I am not a big Bruno Mars fan, but this was the best in years, he showed that he can sing live and dance and play music, great musician.

  33. Navy nick February 2, 2014

    He was amazing, loved it

  34. Legendtina February 2, 2014

    His performance was incredible but like someone said before you’ve seen it once, you’ve seen it twice. Bruno is a talented musician but he’s not an entertainer. Madonna’s half time show remains the best in my book.

  35. ZANIA February 2, 2014

    Kelly Rowland stole the show from Beyonce last year, and I remmeber the tweets, mothers were complaining saying that is was too much for tv and men were calling it the best strip show they seen in awhile. I remember one tweet, I a guy said he wanted to through dollars at his tv, so how great is that, you can go to the top strip clubs and get that type of performance.

  36. Legendtina February 2, 2014

    *seen it before

  37. Yolo February 2, 2014

    All people do is compare to Beyoncé. Queen. Bruno deserves his own credit though.

  38. XoMoDe February 2, 2014

    Meh. I didn’t even bother to watch it. Bruno is a dork and his music is corny, so I knew that his performance was going to be a total snooze. RHCP should have been the headliners, with his as their guest.

  39. Avenger February 2, 2014

    I’m tired of these cheesy pop stars headlining the half time show. Next year they need to get a hard rock, hip hop or hell even country act to do it. Something a bit more hard, testosterone driven and “male”. This isn’t LOGO, it’s the Superbowl.

  40. lazycrockett¤ February 2, 2014

    USA Today’s review was brutal.

  41. Yolo February 2, 2014

    @Zania. There are many reviews slandering him actually. Beyoncé only got criticized for being s***, not her actual show. And she is currently ranked at #5 in Billboards best shows with only the most iconic figures in music.

  42. ENOUGH ONIKA (NEW & IMPROVED) February 2, 2014

    …..anyway. *goes back to watching Smart Guy, the episode with Destiny’s Child in it 🙂 *

  43. LOL February 2, 2014

    LOL I SEE THE FLEAS ARE MAD CUZ BRUNO SLAYED RIHONCE’S REHASHED SNOOZEFEST FROM LAST YEAR LIKE IT NEVER EVEN EXISTED LOL

  44. Just Sayin February 2, 2014

    Erm no they’re not lol^ What you want to ‘see’ is so different than what ‘is’.

  45. zania February 2, 2014

    She will all be ranked high on Billboard, Forbes New York times, because they do business with her husband and friends with him. You will never see Billboard or Forbes say anything bad about Beyonce or Jay. Jay have a whole lot of politcal power in the industry, just like her Grammy performance everyone was complaining but most of the main blogs like E oline, Forbes Billboard praised her, its about power and money, not real talent Bruno Mars is real talent.

  46. Yolo February 2, 2014

    @Zania Stop lying. Billboard posted that article about her copying and Forbes posted that shady article about her brand at the Grammys. Try again.

  47. zania February 2, 2014

    @Yolo, I am not talking about the reviews, I am talking about the people who actually buy the music, that is what counts. He sells millions because people love him. Look how long its taking Beyonce to sell 500,00 download copies with her top single Drunk in love, and don’t come with me and talk about her album sales, because I know tat Jayz made a deal with billboard and bought her downloads, he is powerful in the music industry, and he wasn’t going to let his wife album fail again like 4. Everything about her is fake. If her album was so great like they trying to convince the public with all the fake bought itunes, it would’ve reflect in her single sales after Grammys. Justin timberlake and Taylor sold million albums in a week and sold millions in singles.

  48. quetta February 2, 2014

    I understand beyonce is the high standard but may you lessors stop with the comparisons.

  49. Yolo February 2, 2014

    ‘You will never see Billboard or Forbes say anything bad about Beyonce or Jay’

    They have. If Beyoncé and Jay paid them, they would have spilled all that tea on Beyoncé copying.

    And all the rest of your comment is a load of vacant, heresay you have drawn up based on your own biased opinion. And sounds stupid the more I read it. The Music industry is huge with so many contributing factors and sources and Beyoncé Jay Z DO NOT have that much power to just go around bribing.

    4 would not have ‘failed’ in the first place if they did that. And you’ve come to that conclusion how? By comparing her to Taylor and Justin who both had lead singles, did not release two songs the same time their album came out with videos to accompany it. You sound so simple minded and know nothing about how the industry works if you believe that. This isn’t a movie.

    And back on topic, Bruno Mars reviews still aren’t all rosy like you are making out, based on Twitter LOL.

  50. Lolz February 2, 2014

    Beyonces impact.

  51. zania February 2, 2014

    @Yolo doesn’t matter what his views is, the public bought millions of his albums and singles, Beyonce will never sell singles like Bruno Mars, she is struggling to sell a million with her top song she dropped. I don’t want to here that people bought her album, People bought over 5 million of Bruno, Taylor and Justin singles and over 3 million albums in the us. It doesn’t matter that she didn’t drop her single first, there are people who buy singles and people who buy albums, where are all the people buying her singles?

  52. Yolo February 2, 2014

    @Zania. I don’t know what point you are trying to make but so far you’re failing. I just corrected you trying to shade Beyonces reviews, now ‘it doesn’t matter’ when you bought it up first? LOL. For one, I bought her album and havn’t even thought about buying the single because I have a full visual album. Beyonce has pushed her album different to all the artists you listed. The focus is on the album NOT the singles. All those artists have pushed singles individually. Beyonce has not. Its really not hard to see whats happening. She has deliberatley gone down the opposed route of having singles push your album. Ask any professional music analyst and its easy to see what shes done. How tf does all what you just prove that she buys her album, when if you use basic logic you’ll understand whats going on?

  53. Yolo February 2, 2014

    The only way she pushed a single was with the grammys, and the song shot straight up Itunes after that.

  54. Special Delivery February 3, 2014

    Beyonces performance is one of the iconic ones, Brunos is not. He is did a really good job but aint nobody gonna be checkin for this two years from now. Unless its to dig up some shade towards someone else. Case closed.

  55. HOTSTUFF February 3, 2014

    WOW THIS WAS SO GREATTTTTTTTTTT O_O !!!!!!!!!! LOVED IT & LOVE HIM !!!! HE WAS WAY BETTER THAN BEYONCE !
    BRUNO’S MUSIC >>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>BEYONCE’S.

  56. JOHNVIDAL February 3, 2014

    He did amazing!!!
    All you little girls are so bitter. Beyonce and Madonna did an excellent job, so what? Of course they did better than him visually, they are supposed to be these amazing performers, but Bruno murdered them musically no doubt. His performance was based on live singing, musicianship and message. He did amazing.
    For him to do this so early on his career is an achievement itself. And also to the person saying they should have waited a little bit more before letting him perform cos not everybody knows him: let me tell you, he´s like the biggest male music star in the world, his songs are even more popular than Rihanna´s and Katy Perry´s worldwide and he has sold better than them with just his second album. He is quietly killing it, and with an unique style and a girl models-dominated music world. So congrats to Bruno!

  57. L21480 February 3, 2014

    It was wack.
    Bruno is wack.

  58. Sandra February 3, 2014

    Bruno Mars was good, I liked the performance, especially his dancing. But Michael Jackson’s performance in 1993 is still the best, and the first original huge superbowl performance.

  59. OQRAM February 3, 2014

    I watched about a minute of it and then changed the channel. They should have gotten someone else to headline this. Bruno is the epitome of the word “boring.”

  60. JDE97 February 3, 2014

    I didn’t bother to watch it but I can’t wait to see what the ratings on it were. I bet it was a dip from the past few years.

  61. Ms. Jackson February 3, 2014

    Bruno had the best halftime show since Prince in 2007. Pure raw talent, and musicianship. His footwork was nice, good vocals, and he killed it on that drumset. I see there are a lot of dumb ass kids on this blog who don’t know any better, but that’s how you put on a halftime show. He’s had nothing but rave reviews, and his albums are number 1 and 4 on iTunes, respectively. His fanbase has grown even wider now. Make no mistake, Bruno is the last of a dying breed and eons better than that b******* from last year.

  62. Ren February 3, 2014

    Lame.

  63. Mahalia Jackson February 3, 2014

    You know what’s wrong in this website? The comment box become a “Stan War Box” or “Shade Box” instead of giving constructive criticism or senseful stuff that relates to the post. No wonder why all the commenters are all the same people in every different posts.

    Anyway, as the blogger says, its not Madonna or Beyonce’s level of performance but Bruno did an excellent job! He really know how to entertain so give props to him. The drumming is impressive, the vocals are good, he can move too. He just proved that other than these “top performers”, a newbie can also serve in the game.

    *goes back to her grave*
