Bruno Mars was the star of the night — even from thousands of miles away.
The 32-year-old singer-songwriter, instrumentalist and multi-talented entertainer couldn’t make it to last night’s American Music Awards at the Microsoft Theater in Los Angeles, but one thing was clear: 2017 was his.
Mars took home seven of the eight awards he was nominated for, including the coveted Favorite Artist of the Year, along with Favorite Male Artist (Pop/Rock), Favorite Album (Pop/Rock) for “24K Magic,” Favorite Male Artist (Soul/R&B), Favorite Album (Soul/R&B), Video of the Year and Favorite Song (Soul/R&B) for “That’s What I Like.”
The Grammy-winning star is currently on tour in Brazil and sent in a video message and tweets to celebrate his significant win.
