Super Bowl 2014 Halftime: Bruno Mars and Red Hot Chili Peppers perform (Video)


The Super Bowl half time performance was better than I think most expected. It began with a drum solo from pop star Bruno Mars, a different start than I think anyone expected. He got into a performance I think more people expected doing a bit of a James Brown impression.

Then out came the Red Hot Chili Peppers. They performed shirtless despite the cold weather as well, props for living up to their rock star reputations. All in all it was an incredible performance and will go down as one of the more memorable in Super Bowl history.

Catch the Chili Peppers and Mars performing below if you missed it.

Mars did his best James Brown impression:
