The Best Thing About The Super Bowl Wasn’t The Game – It Was These Two Performances

Thousands of football fans flocked to the MetLife Stadium on Sunday for the Super Bowl XLVIII between the Seattle Seahawks and the Denver Broncos, expecting to see a tight, entertaining clash. But, the latter’s utter dominance from the get-go meant that the fans went into the halftime break feeling a little disappointed.

Something was needed to lighten up the occasion, and in came the talented Bruno Mars. Last Sunday, the 28-year-old Hawaiian won the second Grammy of his young career, and this Sunday he got the honor of performing at such a high-profile event that has a global audience in excess of 100 million.

He started off with his high-energy number "Locked out of Heaven" before blending his other smash hit “Treasure” into the Red Hot Chili Peppers’ “Give It Away.”

The crooner, born Bruno Hernandez, then ended his four-song set by presenting a tribute to the US armed forces through “Just the Way You Are.”

RHCP didn’t cover any of Led Zepplin’s songs, as it was being reported for the past few weeks, but their shirtless cameo of their own song was enough to make the audience go wild.

Anyway, enough talk for now. Just hit the play button up top and check out Bruno and the Peppers - the most entertaining things on Super Bowl Sunday.
