In SuperBowl 50, Bruno Mars and his crew performed a spectacular rendition of his Grammy Award Winning Hit, "Uptown Funk". Packed with screaming fans, stadium shaking, Mars and his crew hit beat after beat in brilliant choreography created and taught to them by none other than a member of America's Best Dance Crew Season 1 Winners: Jabbawockeez, Phillip Tayag.
So why does Bruno Mars focus so much on his performance? Other singers often simply sing, do a little jig, and call it good. But Mars takes things to a whole other, level, combining intricate dance routines to his silky smooth vocals to deliver hit after hit in his performances. One can see his genius on stage at work during this 2012 Grammy Performance of "Runaway Baby"
From his charming croons to his James Brown-inspired breakdowns, Bruno Mars is a born performer, and he proves it time and time again with his vivid onstage presence. Here's a clip of him performing "Treasure":
And you can see the Motown influence bleeding from the stage, and the performance itself being a throwback to the Jackson 5 and other artists prominent in that era.
And finally, we get to his breath-taking performance at the SuperBowl 50 Halftime Show where, to me, he totally stole the show with his funky choreography, with inspiration drawn from different genres of hip-hop, such as pop, lock, and even giving a shout-out to MC Hammer's "Can't Touch This"
This man is a showman to the fullest extent of the word, and he's definitely a favorite in the eyes of the industry, writing hit song after hit song for different artists, and also releasing many successful albums on his own.
So if you hear that Bruno Mars is performing in your area, buy tickets and go! It's an experience you'll never forget!
