Next month's Superbowl half-time will now be a double tour de force featuring both Bruno Mars and the Red Hot Chilli Peppers, with the Los Angeles rockers added to the mid-match extravaganza to broaden the appeal of one of the most watched television spectaculars of the year.
Mars was confirmed at the half-term headliner last year but confirmed during last weekend's play-off clash between the Seattle Seahawks and New Orleans Saints that he will have company.
The fight to play one of entertainment's most coveted spots has become fierce in recent years, but the Chilli Peppers have made the cut to provide fans with an alternative reason to stay and tuned and challenge last year's astonishing viewing figures for the Superbowl showpice.
More than 110.5m people tuned in for the 2012 effort, which saw Beyonce win widespread acclaim for a performance that featured a reunion with Destiny's Child bandmates.
Madonna, The Who and Bruce Springsteen have also taken centre-stage in recent years, which gives a joint effort between Mars and the Chilli Peppers a lot to live up to when they take centre-stage at MetLife Stadium in New Jersey on February during the interval of Superbowl XLVIII.
