Bruno Mars Reveals All-Time Favorite VMA Moment
'Grenade' singer tells MTV News the King of Pop's 1995 performance left an indelible impression on him.

Bruno Mars is looking forward to a special night at this year's Video Music Awards, which will include a performance and competing for Moonmen in four categories, including Video of the Year for "Grenade," but before the show kicks off on Sunday, the crooner told us he already has an all-time favorite VMA moment.

"Favorite VMA memory?" he said on the set of his VMA promo, which debuted on-air this week. "I think one of the tightest performances I've ever seen is Michael Jackson's VMAs. He did 'Dangerous' into like 'Smooth Criminal.' "

The 1995 VMA performance featured Jackson performing a medley of some of his most beloved tunes, including "Don't Stop 'Til You Get Enough," "The Way You Make Me Feel," "Scream," "Beat It," "Thriller," "Black or White," "Billie Jean," "Dangerous," "Smooth Criminal" and "You Are Not Alone," all with Guns N' Roses guitarist Slash by his side.

"He just showed why he was the King of Pop," Bruno continued. "He's just not human. When you were watching it, he was doing dance moves you have never seen before. He made a moment."

That performance stuck with the singer, who took Jackson's performing philosophy to heart. "I think that's the most important thing when you're doing stuff like the VMAs: You get this one moment to really show everything you've got."

In addition to his nod for Video of the Year, Mars is also up for Best Male Video and Best Pop Video, also for "Grenade." And he'll compete for Best Choreography for his less-angsty "The Lazy Song."

I'm a huge fan of Bruno Mars, I absolutely adore him...you can tell what kind of artists influence him, such as MJ and Elvis as he used to impersonate them. But yeah Bruno's great and I love his interviews there always awesome to watch.
