NEW YORK (AP) - A person familiar with Super Bowl entertainment plans tells The Associated Press that Grammy-winner Bruno Mars will perform at halftime of February's NFL championship game.
The person spoke on condition of anonymity on Saturday because the league had not yet made a formal announcement.
This season's Super Bowl will be played Feb. 2 at MetLife Stadium in East Rutherford, N.J.
Mars is one of pop music's top acts, with several No. 1 hits including his most recent, "When I Was Your Man."
The 27-year-old singer-songwriter-producer was honored for best male video and choreography for "Treasure" at the MTV Video Music Awards last month.
