Bruno Mars is getting a little help from some famous rockstars when he performs at Super Bowl XLVIII next month. The part-Puerto Rican crooner announced on Saturday that the Red Hot Chili Peppers will join him as part of his halftime show. 

According to CNN, Mars, a Grammy-winning pop singer, invited the Rock ‘n Roll Hall of Famers to join him for the festivities on Feburary 2 at MetLife Stadium in East Rutherford, New Jersey. 

“One of the most successful acts in rock history, Red Hot Chili Peppers, which is singer Anthony Kiedis, bassist Flea, drummer Chad Smith, and guitarist Josh Klinghoffer, have sold more than 60 million albums, including five multi-platinum LPs, and won six Grammy Awards,” the NFL said in a press release. 

Mars was named Billboard’s 2013 artist of the year. His hits include the No. 1 song “When I Was Your Man” and his Grammy-nominated sophomore album, “Unorthodox Jukebox” has sold almost 2 million copies. 

The Super Bowl will be broadcast on Fox on February 2. Will you be watching?
