Mars Caught In Super Bowl Orbit

runo Mars, who has had five No. 1 singles and six top-ten singles since his career as a solo performer took off in 2010, has been selected to headline the halftime show at Super Bowl XLVIII on Feb. 2 at the MetLife Stadium in the Meadowlands Sports Complex in New Jersey. Mars confirmed repeated rumors that he had been chosen when he tweeted to his fans on Sunday: WE'RE GOING TO THE SUPER BOWL!!!!!!! #PepsiSBHalftime. In a brief career timespan, the Hawaii-born 27-year-old has become one of the top recording stars of the day. In 2011 his Just the Way You Are sold 12.5 million copies and won a Grammy award for best male pop vocal. At last month's MTV Video Music Awards, his Locked Out of Heaven was voted Best Male Video. On Saturday a repeat of the Mars-hosted Saturday Night Live posted the highest ratings for the NBC comedy show in four weeks. Mars's Super Bowl stint will follow this year's half-time performance by Beyoncé, who was showered with much critical praise after her appearance at this year's halftime show in New Orleans.
