If he just did a drum solo for the entire show, I would have loved it.
Bruno Mars, along with the Red Hot Chili Peppers, put together a pretty good performance. Not a great one, but a good one. For me, I don’t know anything about this guy. I had only heard about him, but I don’t know what songs he does. The only song I know is that annoying one where he goes “aw yeah yeah” a million times during the Pepsi commercial. And that was the first song he did during his set.
The NFL demographic isn’t the right fit for Mars. The Red Hot Chili Peppers is more fitting, but having Mars headline this big spectacle was a headscratcher. Does the average NFL fan even listen to this guy, let alone know who he is? I think he fits the 20-30 year-old female range.
Last night, there was a major Twitter reaction when Mars hit the stage — especially for the older generation. They wondered who this guy was.
