Bruno Mars lands huge Super Bowl show + 5 Latinos who have rocked halftime (VIDEOS)

It's official: Bruno Mars will be performing at the Super Bowl XLVIII halftime show this February! Though rumors that the Puerto Rican Grammy-winner would be taking the stage at the game started swirling earlier this past weekend, the NFL finally confirmed the news yeterday. And personally, I couldn't be more thrilled with the choice! I'm a fan of his music in general, but I'm an even bigger fan of his performances. No matter where he is, he always puts on a good show ... not to mention, he is of the few remaining singers out there that sounds as amazing live as he does on his albums.

Besides, after all his success in the last few years, I think he definitely deserves a place in history alongside the other artists that have performed in the show. Below, check out a few other Latino stars that have taken the Super Bowl stage:
