Caught in between all the tension, the crowd cheers, and the amazing dance moves of Chelsie Hightower and Mark Ballas was Jason Mraz's acoustic and heartfelt performance of his hit single "I Won't Give Up". Mraz sang the lovely tune at the recent "Dancing with the Stars" country night results on Tuesday, October 30.
"I Won't Give Up" is from the Grammy-winning singer's latest fourth studio album "Love Is a Four Letter Word" which was released last April 13, 2012. It debuted in the Top 15 in 13 countries, including No. 2 in the United States while "I Won't Give Up" made it to the No.1 slot on Billboard's Digital Songs Chart one week after its release.
The 35-year old singer-songwriter has certainly pushed his musical career to the big leagues and has become one of today's most respected pop-rock artists. Mraz started out at small coffee houses and slowly took his talents to stadiums across the country until landing two Grammy Awards and six Grammy nominations under his belt.
Mraz's 2008 release "We Sing, We Dance, We Steal Things" went multi-platinum and carried another hit single "I'm Yours". This helped him bag two more Grammy wins: Best Male Vocal Performance for "Make It Mine" and Best Pop Collaboration with Vocals for "Lucky", his duet with Colbie Caillat.
Country sweetheart, Taylor Swift, was also present on the live telecast and performed "We Are Never Ever Getting Back Together" off her record-breaking new album "Red".
