Bruno Mars may have lost all three of his bids at Sunday’s Billboard Music Awards but that didn’t stop him from delivering a winning performance of “Versace On The Floor.” This promotional single from his album “24K Magic” dropped last fall and helped push the disc up to number 2 on the Billboard chart.
Mars is in the middle of a worldwide tour to promote the album. His rendition of “Versace On The Floor” that won over the crowd at the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas was beamed in from Amsterdam. The talented singer/songwriter will be stateside in the summer and Sin City will be one of his many stops on the North American leg of the “24K Magic” tour.
Despite all his success, Mars has only prevailed in one of his 29 Billboard Music Awards races: Best Radio Song for “Just the Way You Are” back in 2011. That track won him the first of his five Grammy Awards as he claimed the Male Pop Vocal Performance prize that year. Since then, he has taken home four more of music’s biggest prize: Pop Vocal Album (“Unorthodox Junction,” 2014); Record of the Year and Pop Duo/Group Performance (“Uptown Funk,” 2015); and Album of the Year (as a producer of Adele‘s “25” in 2017).
