Bruno Mars and his band have been promoting his new album “Unorthodox Jukebox” for quite some time but, even though he’s sticking to performing the same song, it’s always a pleasure to see him in action.

The other night, Bruno took over the stage at X Factor USA, the live results show, and set it ablaze (not literally though) with a spectacular rendition of his single “Locked Out of Heaven.”

You can see his performance in full above.

I said it before and I will say it again: Bruno Mars is one of the best live performers of our time. He’s incredibly talented and makes catchy music, which is even catchier when it’s live.

“Locked Out of Heaven” is no exception. The only questionable thing about the performance, as many commenters also note on YouTube, is the producers’ decisions to pan away from Bruno exactly at the moments he was dancing with the band.

Bad call.
