The Super Bowl halftime show was amazing just the way it was— but now it’s getting Bruno Mars.
The 30-year-old confirmed he’ll rock a musical “grenade” at Super Sunday for the second time, sharing a photo on Friday evening of him rehearsing at Levi’s Stadium in Santa Clara, Calif.
“It ain’t a party if Mr $ how Up & $ how out doesn’t show up,” Mars captioned the Instagram snap, adding several hashtags like “confirmed” “ Shwaaaggg” and “SB50.”
The “Uptown Funk” singer will join Coldplay and Super Bowl alum Beyonce for the mid-game gig.

It was first reported in September that Mars was offered to return to the big game to “curate” the halftime show.
The R&B singer headlined the halftime show during Super Bowl XLVII in New Jersey in 2014, belting out hits like “Locked out of Heaven” And “Just the Way You Are.”
The powerful dancing and singing act received critical buzz and earned him an Emmy nomination.
It also broke records: The 115 million viewers tuning into his halftime special made it the highest number of viewers at the time. It was beaten by Katy Perry’s performance last year.
