NEW YORK, N.Y. - In a story Feb. 1 about Robin Thicke's performance at ESPN's pre-Super Bowl party, The Associated Press reported erroneously that Thicke covered a Marvin Gaye song. Thicke covered Al Green's "Let's Stay Together."

A corrected version of the story is below:

Robin Thicke and Kendrick Lamar might be putting in their bids for the 2015 Super Bowl halftime show.

The artists were energetic when they performed Friday night at ESPN's pre-Super Bowl bash at Pier 36 in New York City.

Thicke's performance included the upbeat jams "Give It 2 U," ''Magic" and "Blurred Lines," which he closed with and got the audience of a few thousand grooving.

He also slowed it down, playing the piano during "Dreamworld" and standing on top of it. Thicke even sang covers, including Michael Jackson's "Rock With You" and Al Green's "Let's Stay Together."

Lamar was also a crowd pleaser, working the stage from left to right and performing hits like "Don't Kill My Vibe" and "Poetic Justice." The audience included a number of celebrities, from Spike Lee to Tim Tebow, Ice-T and Lindsey Vonn with her crutches.

The Seattle Seahawks will play the Denver Broncos on Sunday at MetLife Stadium in East Rutherford, N.J. Bruno Mars is the halftime performer.
