The NFL wants Bruno Mars to perform during super bowl half time. You head it right. According to Entertainment Weekly, NFL has asked Bruno Mars to sing "Uptown Funk" to during the mid-game spectacular show next year and that is 2 years since he performed at the MetLife Stadium during half time of the game between the Broncos and the Seahawks.  In 2014, when the 29-year-old singer performed, he was joined by the Red Hot Chili Peppers on stage. According to ew.com, that performance has been hailed as the most-watched halftime show ever until he was usurped by Katy Perry when she performed this year for 13 minutes during the Pepsi Super Bowl XLIX Halftime Show in February.

If Mars performs during Super Bowl next year he will be joining the ranks of famous singers who have appeared multiple times in the halftime show including Gloria Estefan and Nelly. But Mars will be the first to be featured twice within a short span of time.

According to Billboard, Director of media events for the NFL Sarah Moll said in December last year that she was a huge fan of Bruno Mars and her greatest accomplishment for 2014 was booking Mars for the Super Bowl XLVIII halftime special . "Myself and our producer, Ricky Kirshner, were both personal fans of Bruno and had seen him in concert and knew what he could do," she said. "And it was a lot of just telling folks here and getting folks excited about Bruno and taking them to shows and letting them see what he could do. And that's kind of what got it going."  At that time she was aware that her personal opinion alone was not enough to get the league's commissioner and its executives to agree to book Mars for 2016 Super Bowl Halftime.  Looks like they agree now. Would you like to see Bruno Mars perform during the SB halftime next year?
