Hats off to you, Bruno Mars. We didn’t think you’d be able to follow last year’s Beyoncé-bowl, but you undoubtedly did the Super Bowl justice. Metallic Saint Laurent blazer, Red Hot Chili Peppers cameo, perfect pompadour, and all.
As Mars was inducted into the halftime set’s exclusive clique, we couldn’t help but think back to performances of yesteryear. From Michael Jackson’s “Jam” at Super Bowl XXVII in 1993, to sister Janet Jackson and Justin Timberlake’s controversial “Rock Your Body” at Super Bowl XXXVIII in 2004, these tunes got us most hype for the NFL’s ultimate bout.
