Bruno Mars : Super Impressive
Super Bowl halftime shows usually break down into three groups: classic rock legends (Paul McCartney, the Who, Tom Petty, Bruce Springsteen), pop icons (Madonna, Prince, Beyoncé, Justin Timberlake) and more recent stars riding high on big success (Black Eyed Peas, No Doubt). Bruno Mars seems to be a little bit of all of these things.
During his Super Bowl performance he proved he's an electric showman and an old-school vocal powerhouse. His music mixes vintage soul, rock and contemporary R&B. MORE HERE
Bruno opened up with the first ever Mega Super Bowl Drum Explosion (above) ...and we became interested quickly. I found myself mumbling 'Krupa' and 'Rich' ...
Then he started dancing ...he and his band wearing gold lamé jackets and dancing in unison a la the Temptations or the Spinners ...and Mars' solo dancing an obvious homage to Michael Jackson and Jackie Wilson.
What can we say ...we were impressed.
