Bruno Mars' Super Bowl Setlist: Poll Results
Which five songs do fans need to hear Bruno perform at Super Bowl XLVIII? Check out the full results.
Following last weekend's announcement that Bruno Mars will be taking the torch from Beyonce and headliing the Pepsi Super Bowl XLVIII Halftime Show, fans started to wonder which songs out of the singer-songwriter's many Top 10 hits he would bring to MetLife Stadium. With only about 12 minutes to perform on the biggest stage in the world, which tracks will Mars use to entertain the masses?
Although we'll have to wait until Feb. 2, 2014 to find out the actual Super Bowl setlist, Billboard asked fans earlier this week to sound off on the five songs they absolutely needed to see their musical idol perform during his halftime extravaganza. Thousands of votes were cast, and now, it's time to reveal the results. Check out the top five Bruno Mars songs in our Super Bowl setlist poll, listed from least-voted to most-voted:
The No. 1 hit earned the fifth most votes in the poll, edging out "Runaway Baby" to make the dream setlist. In between wide receivers catching touchdown passes, Mars could catch grenades for you as an emotional set-capper.
4. "Just The Way You Are"
Mars' first solo No. 1 single has been used as a blissful sing-along during his Moonshine Jungle tour, and could have the same lighters-in-the-air effect during a Super Bowl rollout. Get ready to tear up, football fans.
Did you see Mars' epic performance of "Gorilla" during the MTV Video Music Awards last month? So did a lot of poll voters, apparently. The singer's latest "Unorthodox Jukebox" offering is unquestionably stadium-sized, and deserves to be pounded out at MetLife.
Mars' rendition of "Treasure" at the 2013 Billboard Music Awards was sublime, and his fans want to hear the throwback hit played live on TV once more. Wrangle your disco balls and bust out your finest leopard print!
1. "Locked Out of Heaven"
When "Locked Out of Heaven" comes on, it's time to party -- and Bruno Mars fans expect a smashing party at the Super Bowl. The No. 1 smash easily earned the most votes in this year's Super Bowl setlist poll, and luckily for fans, seems like a lock for the actual setlist. Oh-yeah-eah!
