Bruno Mars Unleashes ‘Gorilla’ at VMAs

Bruno Mars

Bruno Mars made a bang at the VMAs. The R&B heartthrob put on an electrifying performance of “Gorilla” at Sunday’s show. Laser beams shot across the stage and explosions erupted as he recreated the performance from his “Moonshine Jungle World Tour.”

He also took home two awards for Best Male Video for “Locked Out of Heaven” and Best Choreography for “Treasure.”

Watch Bruno unleash the beast below.

    @T.K., He’s so incredible talented. Writes, sings, performs. And what charisma he’s got. Best triple threat to come along in years and years. This guy is A-M-A-Z-I-N-G!! He can’t be held back. He can maybe be ignored by those he threatens, however…the fans know!

    Worst lyricist in pop music. Totally derivative.

    @HoodOut, Granted I’m not a huge fan of some of the singles from his first album, but to say he’s the worst lyricist in pop is a joke. Bruno’s a multi-instrumentalist, who has written and produced for several artists including Cee-Lo (e.g. ‘Forget You’/’F*ck You’), K’naan, Matisyahu, Brandy, Lloyd, Melanie Fiona, Adam Lambert, Alicia Keys, etc; and is a Grammy Award winning vocalist (who was once signed to Motown Records). He deserves every ounce of his success, whether you like it or not, especially when compared to most of the other pop artists in the industry!

    Incredible, if this performance was done by one of the overrated artists out there, everybody will be talking about. Bruno has a golden voice that will take him far away, he already achieved huge success with just two albums out and he deserves everything. But I saw some sadness in his eyes, I bet he thought about his mom and he brought his dad, he’s just amazing.

    He’s the best there is in my eyes , and for the last three years!!!!! This performance was good, but it was censored so much!!! Poor Bruno couldn’t totally show us what he can do, and he’s a mega talent!!! Love him:):):)

    With all the hype for JT, we almost forgot Bruno was even gonna perform. And JT did a great job – I personally thought it was too long, but he did have a good performance. But in my humble opinion, Bruno Mars was by far the best performance of the night. He is one of the very few artists that is SO MUCH BETTER LIVE! And that is not easy to do! And his talents run far beyond his performance – he understands every aspect of music and so far, seems to be handling his success with humility and grace. I hope that never changes for him. His mother would be so proud of him (even if “Gorilla” is a R-rated). And agree with the other comment, there was a little sadness in his eyes for his performance and I can’t help but wonder what was going on – could just be exhaustion from the tour. Once a Hooligan, always a Hooligan!

    I love Bruno JT was great but I like Bruno Mars because he is multi- talented, he is funny and such a great singer. I’ve seen him twice. I’ve been to two of his concerts in Houston. August 15, 2013 I attend his Moonshine Jungle Tour concert and it is without a doubt that Bruno is extremely talented. His voice is so beautiful life. However I agree with the previous comments and I notice 2 things he lost a lot of weight and he does have that sadness in his eyes and also he has been sick. I think the tour is hurting him. He recently tweeted about been sick. Also he still grieving but that’s doesn’t stop him from giving his fans his 150%

    Undoubtedly the best performance of the night! It’s so sad that the circus antics of the night overshadowed his performance. Bruno is a great artist and performer; something that is truly rare.

    Awesome voice and music… Reminds me of MJ even. But the lyrics to “Gorilla” is so so awful. So bad I thought I was mishearing things on the radio but I looked the words up and I was hearing them right after all — it was just really bad lyrics.
