Bruno Mars kicked off the Super Bowl halftime show to his own beat, performing in the drummer's seat for millions of people watching across the world. It wasn't long until the singer's moving platform approached the main stage, where he busted out renditions of "Locked Out of Heaven" and "Treasure." Bruno and his dapper backup band wore matching metallic jackets, which were inevitably outshined by the Red Hot Chili Peppers' bare chests — the guys hit the stage shirtless! Lead singer Anthony Kiedis sang "Give It Away," one of the band's biggest hits. The performance got emotional when members of the US military shared sweet messages in a short video. The patriotic messages provided the introduction to Bruno's "Just the Way You Are," which wrapped up the performance. Bruno brought some lively entertainment to the game, which was a blowout dominated by the Seattle Seahawks over the Denver Broncos.
