Bruno Mars (2012) – Best Grammy Performances
Even as a newcomer, Bruno Mars was able to put on one of the most fantastic Grammy performances of all-time. The ‘Doo-Wops & Hooligans’ hit maker took the stage in 2012 with his band, who were all wearing gold suit jackets and bow ties to match the frontman. Although he was nominated for his radio monster ‘Grenade,’ Mars chose to get the party goin’ by performing ‘Runaway Baby,’ and it was an absolute blast, both visually and sonically .
The guys brought back that classic Motown vibe started by acts like the Jackson 5 and the Temptations with their coordinated ensembles, big bright wall of lights, and choreographed dance steps. Mars killed it vocally, and the entire performance was bursting with fun times and massive amounts of energy. Even our grandmothers couldn’t resist getting up and dancing (true story)!
