Bruno Mars to sing at halftime of Super Bowl

NEW YORK (AP) — Grammy-winner Bruno Mars will perform at halftime of the Super Bowl.

The
NFL made the announcement ahead of the kickoff of games on Sunday, with
Mars joined by FOX co-host Terry Bradshaw and analyst Michael Strahan
in Times Square.

The league's championship game will be played Feb. 2 at MetLife Stadium in East Rutherford, N.J.

Mars is one of pop music's top acts, with several No. 1 hits including his most recent, “When I Was Your Man.”

The
27-year-old singer-songwriter-producer was honored for best male video
and choreography for “Treasure” at the MTV Video Music Awards last
month.

Halftime shows have drawn more than 100 million television viewers in the United States in past years.
