Bruno gave an amazing tribute to late singer/songwriter Amy Winehouse at the MTV Video Music Awards this last Sunday night. Performing one of her biggest hits, “Valerie”, Bruno & The Band lit the theater up with great music and memories.
This was a true example of Bruno at his very best. Missed the performance? Check it out & also 30 + photos from the show below.
MTV has released the official Bruno Mars photo shoot for the 2011 VMAs. I am not exactly sure when the promo video & shoot was taken, but nonetheless, here are 3 brand new outtakes from the session. How many VMAs do YOU think Bruno will walk away with?
Let us know in the comments section and be sure to head over to the gallery to view the pictures.
Check out Bruno Mars’ brand new promo video & photos for the MTV Video Music Awards which will go down live August 28th!
Bruno is up for four awards this year including “Best Male Vocal”, “Best Choreography” and “Video Of The Year”. I am 100% sure we will finally get to see the HHIC (Head Hooligan In Charge) accept his first VMA! Don’t forget to tune in, guys!
The wait is finally over! Check out the brand new music video to “Lighters”, featuring Bruno Mars and Bad Meets Evil (Eminem and Royce Da 5’9). Displaying a perfect video concept and theme, the video suits the song in perfection!
I always say give credit where credit is due, and these three knocked it out of the park with this song & video. Truly one of the best collaborations to happen in a very long time. Check out the video below if you have not already seen it.
In an interview with MTV recently, Bruno talked about his excitement for being nominated for the VMAs. He says it is the ‘big-boy award’ to be nominated for Video Of The Year.
Bruno Mars’ emotional clip for “Grenade” is one of the big nominees at the 2011 Video Music Awards.
Not only is “Grenade” up for prizes like Best Male Video and Best Pop Video, but the video is also a contender for the night’s ultimate get: Video of the Year. Mars will face off against Katy Perry (“Firework”), Adele (“Rolling in the Deep”), Tyler the Creator (“Yonkers”) and the Beastie Boys (“Make Some Noise”) on Sunday, August 28.
“I grew up watching VMAs. I know every performance,” Mars told MTV News recently. “Ever since I was a kid, I’ve been watching MTV VMAs, and when we got the phone call saying that my video was up for Video of the Year, that’s the big-boy award.”
The accolades mean even more to Mars because he personally dreamed up the idea for the video. “It was my concept,” the singer said. “I said, ‘I want to drag a piano.’ I got my friend, [the video director] Nabil [Elderkin] to come direct it, and it was a risk ’cause I still hear jokes to this day like, ‘What the hell you doing dragging a piano?’ ” he quipped. “But it’s my art, so shut up!”
In addition to competing for Moonmen for that “Grenade” video, Mars is also battling it out for Best Choreography for his less-angsty “The Lazy Song.”
“You know what I’m excited for? As much as I put blood, sweat and tears into ‘Grenade,’ I’m excited for ‘The Lazy Song,’ Best Choreography,” he dished to us. “That is amazing … and I think that would be the coolest thing ever if I went home and saw a Moonman that said: ‘Best Choreography, Bruno Mars, ‘The Lazy Song.’ ”
The 28th annual MTV Video Music Awards will air live on Sunday, August 28, from the Nokia Theatre in Los Angeles at 9 p.m. ET/PT. See the list of nominees, revisit last year’s highlights and vote for your favorites in the general categories by visiting VMA.MTV.com.
