Country Music At This Year’s Super Bowl? Nope
The NFL has tipped it's hand in which way the half time show will go for this year's Super Bowl show. Here's who has been invited to play.
Looks like the NFL has invited back Bruno Mars for the Super Bowl 50 halftime show according to a report from Billboard Magazine. This time around, a source confirmed, Mars was asked to "curate" the halftime show, meaning we could probably expect some impressive guests to join him, if he agrees.
The "Uptown Funk" singer was on the big stage just two years ago for Super Bowl XLVIII with special guests Red Hot Chili Peppers, followed by Katy Perry last year.
If you are a numbers person, Mars' previous halftime performance drew 115 million viewers, according to Nielsen -- making it the second highest viewership for the halftime special, following only Perry's last year (which saw 121 million viewers).
Reps for Mars and the NFL had not responded to Billboard's request for comment at time of publishing.
Unfortunately, looks like Country music fans can only hope that Bruno invites one of our format stars to join in the fun.
Good news, it looks like the Chicago Bears will be in the Super Bowl this year to enjoy the concert. A fan can dream right?
