Video: Bruno Mars Channels James Brown at Tour Launch

Bruno Mars shook his hips like Elvis Presley and grabbed his crotch like Michael Jackson as a child, and now for his latest impersonation, the R&B crooner pays homage to James Brown.

On the first stop of his “Hooligans in Wondaland” tour at Roseland Ballroom in New York City last night, the Grammy winner was joined by his production partner Phil Smeezington while mimicking The Godfather of Soul’s moves and singing his Doo-Wops & Hooligans album cut “Runaway Baby.”

He previously shared his admiration for the late soul legend. “I’d watch James Brown on an old concert from 1964, ‘The T.A.M.I. Show.’ Seeing him changed my life. I was working every night singing and going to school during the day. It was very important to me to graduate,” he said.

Watch Bruno get down to the funky sounds.
