Bruno Mars hit up the Grammy Awards stage earlier this evening, performing with a backing band and two singers.

The bouffant-sporting singer-songwriter channeled James Brown during the set, encouraging everyone in Staples Center to get into the spirit. “Get off your rich asses and have some fun!” he said.
