Bruno Mars Kills “So Lonely” and “Message in a Bottle” During Sting Tribute

Bruno Mars is a bad man!

The music superstar delivered a show-stopping and rousing performance of Sting's "So Lonely" and "Message in a Bottle" while honoring the music legend during the 37th annual Kennedy Center Honors. The President and Mrs. Obama, along with Hollywood's Who's Who watched on as Mars dazzled in the only way he knows how.


Along with Sting, the event also honored Al Green, Tom Hanks, Patricia McBride, and Lily Tomlin.

"The Kennedy Center celebrates five extraordinary individuals who have spent their lives elevating the cultural vibrancy of our nation and the world," stated Kennedy Center Chairman David M. Rubenstein. "Al Green's iconic voice stirs our souls in a style that is all his own; Tom Hanks has a versatility that ranks him among the greatest actors of any generation; one of the world's greatest ballerinas, Patricia McBride continues to carry forward her legacy for future generations; Sting's unique voice and memorable songwriting have entertained audiences for decades; and from the days of her early television and theatrical appearances, Lily Tomlin has made us laugh and continues to amaze us with her acting talent and quick wit."
