The Seattle Seahawks may be this year’s Super Bowl champions… But Bruno Mars is the night’s Twitter darling.
The 28-year-old part-Puerto Rican singer’s electrifying halftime show not only proved that Mars is a music superstar; it also generated an out of this world (pun intended) response on social media from a worldwide audience.
Mars and the Red Hot Chili Peppers generated 2.2 million tweets during their 12-minute show, including rave reviews from fellow musicians like Carrie Underwood and Jordin Sparks.
“The whole #halftimeshow was pretty awesome! Well done @BrunoMars,” tweeted Underwood, who sang a memorable rendition of the National Anthem at the 2010 Super Bowl.
“Entrance on drums, James brown, chili peppers, I loved that whole thing,” said actor Joseph Gordon-Levitt, while Gavin DeGraw said Mars “tore up that halftime performance.”
Meanwhile, Sparks tweeted that she got chills when Mars broke out James Brown’s signature dance moves.
