Super Bowl Halftime Show 2014: Bruno Mars, Red Hot Chili Peppers Do Right In New Jersey (PHOTOS)

One of the big questions of Sunday night -- besides who would win Super Bowl XLVIII -- was: Would Bruno Mars and the Red Hot Chili Peppers be able to follow Beyonce's stunner of a halftime show last year?

The short answer: Heck, yes.

The always energetic Mars and the almost always semi-nude Chili Peppers gave it their Super Bowl all during the 2014 halftime show -- or should we say extravaganza. Fresh from his Grammys win, Mars gave an explosive performance of hits such as 'Locked Out Of Heaven' and 'Just The Way You Are,' while a shirtless Anthony Kiedis and the Chili Peppers brought the noise with 'Give It Away.'

Sparks flew, things exploded. The audience roared.

Check out some highlights from the Super Bowl halftime show below:
