Bruno Mars opened the 2016 American Music Awards on Sunday night (Nov. 20) with some TK for performance of “24K Magic.” The title track appeared on Mars’ recently released third studio effort 24K Magic.
Like his 2016 MTV Europe Music Awards opener earlier this month, Mars hit the stage at Los Angeles’ Microsoft Theater with his Hooligans squad against an electric blue set with pyro. The five-piece ensemble coordinated like a throwback boy band — with dance break included — while rocking matching dark blue, black, yellow and white outfits. Even Lady Gaga and Ciara were jamming and singing along out of their seats.
The AMAs performance also comes after Late Late Show host James Corden revealed on Instagram that Mars would be appearing on the viral sing-along segment Carpool Karaoke.
