Little Elvis has come a long way from singing in Waikiki to chart-topping hits.
And now, Bruno Mars is headed to the biggest stage of all — the Super Bowl halftime show.
“So honored that they would give a new… I feel like still a new artist and the NFL is such a prestigious stage that they give the new guy a shot. And I’m so grateful for that,” Mars said.
Mars is no stranger to the stage, but this one’s a little different for the Hawaii-born star who is rehearsing for his halftime performance in New Jersey where temperatures are in the 20s.
“Just like the microphone turns into a popsicle and all these things that you don’t really think about going into. But I’m grabbing the mic and it’s frozen,” Mars said.
But one thing’s for sure… you can count on him to deliver.
“No matter where I perform, it’s my job to uplift the people,” Mars said. “So whether I’m performing at a graduation party, a wedding, a bar mitzvah, the Grammys, the Super Bowl, you know I’m going to give it all I’ve got.”
‘Whatever happens, happens. But you know, I ain’t scared if that’s what you think!” Mars said.
You can watch Mars’ halftime performance at the Super Bowl on KHON2. It all begins on Sunday at 1 p.m.
