So, what songs should we be rooting for to make it onto the setlist of the halftime show?
According to an article published earlier today by the Associated Presses, it looks like Bruno Mars might be the lucky musician to perform at next year’s Super Bowl halftime show. A source close to the Super Bowl entertainment plan had asked to be left anonymous when reporting the news because it has yet to be officially announced by the league. So far, the league have not commented on the report, but the official announced is expected to be released Sunday.
If it’s true that the Grammy-winner will be taking on the task as halftime performer, the event is scheduled to take place on February 2 at the MetLife Stadium in East Rutherford, N.J.
The singer was most recently awarded ‘Best Male Video’ for “Locked Out of Heaven” and ‘Best Choreography’ for “Treasure” at the MTV Video Music Awards last month where he also performed his newest single, “Gorilla.”
This past year, the Super Bowl took place in New Orleans, where the Baltimore Ravens beat the San Francisco 49ers, 34-31. The honor of the halftime performance was given to Beyoncé which in turn, resulted in a slight Destiny’s Child reunion right before the memorable power outage that left the stadium in the black and pushing the game back.
