Filled with pyrotechnics, synchronized dancing and crowd participation that featured an intricate LED light display; the 29-minute performance was up beat and (for the most part) family friendly.
The performance started with the chorus of song “Billionaire” that Mars originally performed with rapper Travie McCoy and featured Mars going through several hits.
RHCP joined the fun for the second half of the performance, sending the crowd into a frenzy during their smash hit from yesteryear: “Give It Away.”
The highlight however, was at the end. Prior to Mars’ final song: “Just the Way You Are;” video dedications were shown on the jumbotrons at MetLife Stadium. Military members were shown from overseas giving shout outs to their families in a touching display.
The final song shined brighter than the fireworks that dotted the performance. Now the Denver Broncos will need some fireworks of their own if they want to get back into the game in the second half.
