Fresh off a Best Male Video win for “Locked Out of Heaven,” Bruno Mars took to the MTV Video Music Awards 2013 stage to perform his new single, “Gorilla.” There was smoke, lasers and a giant gorilla that kept popping onto the screen behind him.
We’ll confess — it’s not our favorite Mars’ song. It’s lacking the catchiness of his normal offerings. But hew as definitely giving 100 percent in the performance. Love to see someone actually sing live and rock it out.
The video will be below when we have it. “Gorilla” is the fourth single off Mars’ 2012 album “Unorthodox Jukebox.” He is currently on his “Moonshine Jungle” world tour to promote said album. After wrapping in the U.S. on Sept. 1, he’ll be heading for Europe for October and November and then on to Australia in March 2014.
