07:16 AM ET 09.08 | Bruno Mars may have been locked out of heaven, but it's looking like he'll have a ticket to the Super Bowl. The crooner is expected to be tapped to perform at the halftime show at Super Bowl XLVIII next February, according to two people with knowledge of the matter. An announcement could come as early as this Sunday. Neither the NFL, which produces the Pepsi-sponsored halftime show, or Fox, which is carrying the Super Bowl this season, would comment. An NFL spokesman would only jokingly say that Janet Jackson and Miley Cyrus have been ruled out as performers.

Janet Jackson and Miley Cyrus have been ruled out as performers.

Obviously they aren't feminine enough.

He's from Hawaii where they play all his songs on the radio. I've seen him live at clubs in Waikiki several times.

How about The Eagles ?????

Actually this is a very shrewd NFL move. Just think of the huge spike in sales at the concession stands what with 100,000 people all clamoring to get away at the same time!

I guess that if the Grey Cup can trot the Bieber out there then this is possible.
