Superbowl 2014 was definitely the most uninteresting Super Bowl game thus far…Between the Seahawks beating up on the Broncos and the boring commercials, I'd say this year was a bust. I couldn't resist yawning profusely but then again, I don't like football lol. The highlight of the night was Bruno Mars' halftime show!
Initially, when I learned he was going to perform, I wasn't moved. I'm not a Bruno Mars fan and to be honest, his voice annoys me. I will admit, his performance was amazing. He opened with a children's choir singing his hit song "Millionaire." I was awed by this opening because the children's harmony and pitch were beautiful. Then, Bruno Mars shows off his talents on the drums. Right then and there is when he drew my attention. I had no Idea how musically inclined he was, until now that is. He definitely gained some brownie points with me for that! When he brought out his band, the crowd went bananas, not to mention my eyes are glued to the television. He performed his latest hits "Locked Out of Heaven," "Treasure," and "Run Away." I was very impressed with his stage presence and the chemistry exuded between him and his band. Oh, and let me not forget his dance moves…I WAS FLOORED when I saw him do his James Brown footwork! I had no idea Bruno could dance lol.
As the performance continued, he decided to bring out the well-known and well respected rock band, Red Hot Chili Peppers. They hyped the crowd with a rendition of their popular song "Give it Away". Funny thing is, I know that song. At this point, I was given life. Thanks to Rock Band and Rock Band 2 for exposing my inner rockstar. Bruno closed his performance with footage of troops sending special messages to their loved ones, as he sang his final song "Just the Way You Are." It was a nice touch adding the fireworks and the explosions; that shows how much stage craft Bruno has. Very impressive Mr. Bruno! I will have to admit, he has gained a new fan. Overall, the performance was amazing. This event was no longer about the Super Bowl! This was a Bruno Mars concert special!
