Mars – currently featured on the cover of Rolling Stone music magazine – is set for a number of high-profile TV appearances, beginning with a show-opening performance at the 2016 American Music Awards, airing live on Sunday.

Bruno Mars has sold more than 170 million singles worldwide and more than 26 million albums worldwide, affirming him one of the best-selling artists of all time. The singer, songwriter, producer, director, musician recently dominated charts with the worldwide smash single, Uptown Funk.

It made history as the longest-leading US chart Billboard's Hot 100 single of the 2010s and is only the 10th single in the chart’s 57-year history to spend at least 14 weeks at number one.

Uptown Funk won three Grammys this year, including the coveted Record of the Year award. The song's video received the 2016 MTV Video Music Award for Best Male Video.
