*Bruno Mars confirmed via a promotional video and a note posted on his Twitter account that he will be the musical act at the Pepsi Super Bowl XLVIII Halftime Show at MetLife Stadium on Feb. 2.

Recent Super Bowl halftime shows have featured Beyonce, Prince, Madonna, U2, The Who, Paul McCartney, Diana Ross and other Rock and Roll Hall of Fame-level talent.

Mars might not be at their mega-star status, but he’s solidified himself as a scene-stealing performer – as indicated by his recent performances at MTV’s Video Music Awards, the Grammys and Billboard Music Awards.
