Tonight, Bruno Mars pulled double duty as he was not only the musical guest on SNL, but also the show's host. He got to reveal his versatile side as a comedic actor tonight for the first time, while also doing the same musically. Unfortunately, many of the sketches fell short, save for Bruno as Devin, the Pandora intern (which showcased said versatility musically via satiric covers of Green Day, Katy Perry, and Michael Jackson to name a few) and the show's opening play off of this week's debate.
The two music performances from Bruno were two songs off his upcoming album, Unorthodox Jukebox. The first, above, is the current single "Locked Out Of Heaven", complete with a background dance ensemble to add to the entertainment. The latter, below, is the premiere of presumably the next single, "Young Girls". Mars slows it down, displays his vocal range and a unique storyline. I like the sound of this one as well. Watch the performances if you missed SNL tonight and be on the lookout for Unorthodox Jukebox on December 11th.
