Bruno Mars is set to dazzle the Grammy stage with all his "24K Magic" glory!
The Recording Academy has announced that the "Versace On The Floor" singer-songwriter is slated to perform in 2017's Grammy Awards. He is set to join the ranks of British megastar Adele, Metallica, and John Legend. Other performances in the highly-awaited event would include a duet between ex- American Idol judge Keith Urban and one of the talent show's winner, Carrie Underwood.
Peter Gene Hernandez in real life, Bruno Mars is no stranger to Grammy Awards. Mars won his very first Grammy in 2011 with his hit song "Just The Way You Are" under the category of best male pop vocal performance. He then frequented the stage and award shows with numerous nominations without winning in the subsequent years. He reclaimed the spotlight back in 2014 when he released the megahit "Uptown Funk" which spent 14 consecutive weeks in Billboard's much-coveted Hot 100.
During those years, Mars has also aided on Adele's blockbuster album 25 in which he helped her on writing the track "All I Ask." Adele performed the said track during 2016's Grammy event. Mars latest album "24K Magic" was released on Nov. 2016. It included hit tracks like "That's What I Like" and the eponymous album title.
The Grammy-winning star's imminent performance will mark his fifth Grammy performance. Notably, it will also be his first performance after a 4-year absence in the event. Mars will also be dueling against other musicians as Adele's 25 is also nominated for album of the year.
Grammy Awards 2017 is scheduled to air on Feb. 12 on CBS. It will be produced by AEG Ehrliich Ventures and will be executive-produced by Ken Ehrlich. James Corden is set to host the event at the Staples Center in Los Angeles.
