Bruno Mars brought millions of fans into the club with a command performance during the Super Bowl halftime show Sunday.

The Grammy Award-winning singer translated his high-energy live show to the largest of stages, carrying off his hits with a smoking hot live band while managing to seamlessly integrate the Red Hot Chili Peppers into the set.

There was some concern Mars might not be able to hold up to the pressure of the assignment, but the 28-year-old wiped away the questions immediately. Dressed in a gold jacket, he executed a note-perfect drum solo as he rode across the field on a raised platform. Once on stage, he delivered hits like "Locked Out of Heaven" and "Treasure" with a machismo that made it clear he wasn't lip-syncing.
