Every year the hottest artists light up the stage on football's biggest night, from Beyonce to the Rolling Stones, and who can forget that Janet Jackson wardrobe malfunction? This year's show starred the ever popular Bruno Mars and...the Red Hot Chili Peppers. Sometimes contrasting styles come together in perfect harmony, but this year may have left a few people wandering to the fridge for more beer, disappointed by the combination of talent chosen.

The performance did get off to a good start with Bruno Mars, who opened the show with a choir of kids singing Millionaire. The lights then came over Mars who appeared on a rider playing drums as he glided over to the main stage. Looking like a modern Ritchie Valens, Mars and his band were energetic and kept things upbeat with a fun medley of hits, from Locked out of Heaven to Treasure and Just the Way You Are.

Into the middle Mars started into Give It Away before being joined by the Chili Peppers, who came out shirtless and awkwardly finished out their own song. If they had only let Bruno fly solo, this show might have kept a few more fans on the couch. Try to do better next year, NFL.
