It’s always a treat when our faves hit up the BBC Live Lounge for a few performances — originals and covers alike — but Bruno Mars gave us the biggest treat of all when he hit up the station. Just on the heels of dropping his newest single “24K Magic,” Bruno proved just how magic his vocals truly are, with a stunning rendition of Adele’s ballad “All I Ask.”
The performance was emotional, chill inducing, beautiful — and just every related adjective. It’s moments like these that we truly are reminded of Bruno’s sheer vocal power, stage presence, and ability to make every ballad that much more emotional and pleading. Between his belts and edgy growls, this is Bruno Mars at his finest.
Somehow, he’s made an Adele track funky — who knew a slow love song could be funky? Don’t believe us — just watch.
While he was there, he also got funky to perform 24K Magic — because we can always stand to listen to it another 40 times a day.
