AceShowbiz - Bruno Mars knew how to get the party started at the 2016 MTV Europe Music Awards. The Grammy Award-winning singer opened the show held in Rotterdam, Netherlands on Sunday, November 6 with his new single "24K Magic".
Rocking a stylish Hilfiger Jeans sweat suit, crispy white sneakers and a fitted "XXIV" cap, he delivered the title track of his forthcoming album. He brought the crowd on their feet as he and some backing singers showed off their moves.
The Weeknd also performed live that night, singing "Starboy" that helped him reinvent himself. Clad in an-all black outfit, he showed off his impressive vocals as he performed with the backdrop of a star-emblazoned half dome. The Weeknd won Best Video for "Starboy" visuals at the EMAs.
Shawn Mendes, who was named Best Male at the awards event, delivered an emotional rendition of his hit "Mercy". He began the song as a somber piano ballad in a four-side cube of projections. The Canadian singer poured his heart out as he sang in front of the microphone toward the end of the song.
