Bruno Mars Confirms He's Playing Super Bowl 50 Halftime Show

Bruno previously won widespread acclaim for his half-time performance at the 2014 Super Bowl in New Jersey. CBS also spoke with Hamish Hamilton, who directed the Super Bowl XLVII halftime show and as he recalls, "Working with Beyoncé is interesting". I want you in a red bodysuit!' " He joked, before adding, "Because it's Super Bowl 50!".

"Everyone who does this show knows that it is the biggest honor, the biggest privilege and they put their life and soul into it", front man Chris Martin said.

A source tells EW that Mars has been spotted rehearsing at Levi's Stadium in Santa Clara, California, and in one of his numbers, he's singing alongside Beyoncé.

A solid halftime show, however, can provide an ideal bridge into the second half, even if it's not the primary focus of football fans' Super Bowl Sunday.

Arena-rock staples Coldplay are fresh off promoting their newest record, A Head Full of Dreams, and will likely perform a set of their biggest hits, plus some new material including their collaborative single with Beyoncé ("Hymn for the Weekend").

If Coldplay was the polarizing choice, Beyoncé was the slam dunk.

The Super Bowl will also include some of the world's most expensive and star-studded commercials, as brands make the most of the millions-strong audience.

Despite no new album or USA tour a year ago, sales of Perry's existing work surged 92 percent in the week after her performance.
