Bruno Mars reportedly invited to perform at Super Bowl halftime show – again

A familiar face may grace next year's Super Bowl halftime show.

According to Entertainment Weekly and Billboard, "Uptown Funk" singer Bruno Mars has been invited back to headline the big event Feb. 7 – only two years after he took center stage at Super Bowl XLVIII in 2014.

But Mars, whose last Super Bowl concert brought in 115 million viewers, wasn't just invited to perform this time around. He also has been asked to "curate" the 2016 show, meaning he'd have a say about other guests, Billboard reports.

Mars' representatives have not commented on the reports.
