Tonight is all about Bruno Mars!
"Thank you so much. First off, to the other nominees in this category—Lorde, Kendrick Lamar, Jay-Z, Childish Gambino—you are the reasons I'm in the studio pulling my hair out because I know you guys are only going to come with the top shelf artistry and music and thank you guys for blessing the world with your music. I mean that," Bruno explained.
While he admitted to drinking and celebrating throughout the night, the "24K Magic" singer also wanted to share a story where he gave credit to the people who helped inspire such a special album.
"So I'm 15 years old and I'm opening up a show in Hawaii called the Magic of Polynesia….My job in that show was to entertain about 1,000 people, 1,000 tourists from all over the world. And I put together a set list like 10 to 12 songs and I will be honest, I was incredible at 15," he joked. "And later on in life, I found out that those songs that I was singing were written by either Baby Face, Jimmy Jam and Terry Lewis or Teddy Riley."
