Are You Happy With Bruno Mars As A Super Bowl Performer?

The Super Bowl may have been conceived as the biggest football game of the year, but now, it’s so much more than that. It’s the highest rated, most obsessively discussed television event of the entire year. We won’t know what teams will play in the contest until a few weeks before the big game, but if the latest rumors are to be believed, the halftime performer has already been decided.

According to The Los Angeles Times, the NFL has reached out to “Locked Out Of Heaven” singer Bruno Mars, and he’s apparently very interested in accepting the offer. At some point in the next few days, the league will reportedly introduce him officially, but for the time being, executives are being coy, admitting only they’re not considering Janet Jackson or Miley Cyrus.

On the one hand, it’s easy to see why the NFL and its sponsors would be very excited about Mars. Not only is he an up and coming artist with a brilliant voice, he’s incredibly reliable. He was nothing but a professional during his week on Saturday Night Live, and there are never even any whispers about off the field problems or on stage issues. His music is very popular with younger generations, but it also goes over very well with older people too. There’s nothing about him that’s going to offend anyone. He’s a crowd pleaser.

On the other hand, however, crowd pleaser isn’t always the best thing when it comes to the Super Bowl. The whole point is viewers want to see a spectacle, and while Mars can put on a show, he’s not going to do anything outrageous people are going to talk about the following morning. I can’t imagine there will be much frenzied conversation about what Mars will do during the lead-up to his performance, and I highly doubt many people will tune in specifically to watch him.
