As one of the most anti-climactic Super Bowl’s of all time, Seattle and Denver left the field at halftime with a 36-0 lead to the Hawks. Denver fans who were feeling down on their luck got a boost as the Pepsi Halftime performance took place at MetLife Stadium in East Rutherford, N.J.
Last year, the Super Bowl saw the reunion of Destiny’s Child as Beyoncé charged the stage but this year, the music intertwined a little bit of pop and a little bit of rock. Bruno Mars took the stage for his 13-minute performance drum sticks on hand as the lights descended on his curly hair, gold glittering jacket and LED-lit stage. Before his epic drum solo, a kids choir sang the chorus to the song that kickstarted Mars’ career – “Billionaire.” Soon, his rhythm came to fruition as he took a spot behind a drum set that began to move around the stage to “Locked out of Heaven.”
But the fun didn’t stop there. With help from his band, The Hooligans, Mars continued the performance by singing “Treasure,” “Runaway Baby” and then the beginning of Red Hot Chili Pepper’s massive hit, “Give It Away Now.” Soon, Mars was joined onstage by the four-some and Anthony Kiedis took the reigns. The combination of Mars and Chili Peppers made for a unique performance at this year’s show. Soon, the shirtless rock band left the stage and Mars was rushed to a small second stage that was only three feet wide as he sang “Just The Way You Are” after a tribute to Military soldiers played on the jumbotrons.
