Super Bowl XLVIII halftime performer Bruno Mars is doing some preparations of his own. The Grammy nominated artist is set to perform this Sunday along with the Red Hot Chili Peppers. As USA Today reports on Jan. 30, Mars is confident and ready.

The “Gorilla” singer was secretive as to the details of his Super Bowl XLVIII performance and held his own at the halftime show press conference at Rose Theater – Jazz at Lincoln Center. Bruno Mars told the press, “I want the world to watch”.

He then joked about his upcoming performance compared to previous big name acts, including Michael Jackson and the previous half time performer, Beyoncé. In response to a question asked about the spectacle of his act, he said:

“I ain’t scared if that’s what you think. Spectacle-wise? I don’t do trapeze and all that stuff. I hope to get people smiling. If you ever come to one of my shows, it’s just us up there. We’ve got these songs and our instruments and I’m hoping that’s enough.”

He also went on to joke about the cold weather not being a factor for his hair. Hopefully it won’t affect his performance, but with the energy a Bruno Mars’ show provides, he will be heating up the stage and the Metlife Stadium crowd.
