Photos & Reactions: The Super Bowl XLVIII halftime show

The Super Bowl XLVIII halftime show was a stunning display of musicianship, energy, and collaboration as Bruno Mars kicked off with an extended drum solo (props to him for that) followed by his hit 'Locked Out of Heaven' and culminating with some shirtless Chili Peppers and an electric crowd. Fun fact: the NFL doesn't pay halftime performers a dime. Playing in front 100 million+ is payment enough it would seem. Check out some photos from the halftime show and scroll through for reactions from sports fans around the world:

If Sammy Davis Jr was alive he'd be Bruno Mars. Brilliant!

Bruno is ALWAYS classy. Puts on a great show. Reminds me alot of Michael Jackson before all the plastic surgery.

Bruno Mars put on a show for ALL ages. It was a classy clean act. Love the outfits. No malfunctions. My only negative is we could have done without The Chili Peppers. No substance. Way to Go Bruno!!!!

I'm now a super fan of Bruno Mars. Fantastic Performer who is an awesome Dancer and I found out I love his songs. I used to wonder who he was and how he became so popular so fast, so now I know. I'm a lot older than him and he reminds me a little of Elvis, Michael & Prince. Very handsome young man who is fun to watch.

would you believe Bruno did impersonations of Elvis at 2 years old and Michael Jackson as a teenager - in Hawaii where he grew up

Bruno is the most amazingly talented performer/singer/songwriter/producer to come along in decades. He was absolutely incredible tonight, as always. This is coming from a (young-at-heart and forever youthful) 63-year-old woman, so I'm not exactly part of the younger set and I've seen a lot of the great ones in person over the years. I'm passionate about him and his music. I can't believe some of the comments here that have down-played his talent. Open your ears and eyes!
