HOUSTON (AP) — The Super Bowl halftime show is on Sunday. Someone maybe ought to tell Bruno Mars that.
The pop singer was in grade A form at a pre-Super Bowl show on Friday night, performing a top notch concert that matched the energy he showed when he hit the stage at halftime last year and in 2014.
