The 'Treasure' star was also joined by Red Hot Chili Peppers for a set full of energy, dance and a few tender moments.
Bruno Mars went down with the Super Bowl halftime show greats last night (2nd February) as he rocked the stage at the MetLife Stadium, New Jersey.
The US star had the honour of performing during the huge NFL match between the Denver Broncos and Seattle Seahawks.
The performance opened with a children's choir singing 'Billionaire' before Bruno got things truly rocking from behind the drum-kit.
It was then into a full-on assault of hits as 'Locked Out Of Heaven' got everyone on their feet and those feet were soon dancing to the tune of 'Treasure'.
His own dance moves were on show for all to see, and the unity between his band had never been more palpable.
Then everyone was jumping as the Red Hot Chili Peppers came onstage for 'Give It Away' complete with Bruno vocals
Tribute messages from US troops were shown on the screen as the tender 'Just The Way You Are' began and a pyrotechnic display to end all pyrotechnic displays ended the performance with Bruno's powerful vocals ringing out inside the stadium.
He also paid tribute to his own mother, who passed away in 2013, with her name 'Bernadette' on his drum-kit.
Bruno Mars' Super Bowl halftime show set was:
- 'Billionaire' (sung by Children's choir)
- 'Locked Out Of Heaven' w drum solo intro
