Recently named Billboard magazine’s “2013 Artist of the Year,” Mars is also among the top nominees for the upcoming 56th Annual GRAMMY® Awards, with “Locked Out Of Heaven,” the #1 smash single from his blockbuster second album, “UNORTHODOX JUKEBOX,” receiving nods as “Record Of The Year” and “Song Of The Year.” What’s more, the chart-topping “When I Was Your Man” was named in the “Best Pop Solo Performance” category while “UNORTHODOX JUKEBOX” was included among the “Best Pop Vocal Album” nominees.
With 130 million singles sold worldwide, the 18-time GRAMMY® Award nominee and winner has made music history more than once, including such milestones as scoring his first five Billboard “Hot 100” chart-toppers faster than any male solo artist since Elvis Presley. In addition to his two acclaimed multi-platinum albums – 2010’s “DOO-WOPS & HOOLIGANS” and 2012’s “UNORTHODOX JUKEBOX,” which share a combined certification total of 60x platinum worldwide – Mars has logged an extraordinary catalogue spanning 22 “Hot 100” hits, marking his numerous gifts as singer, songwriter, musician, and producer. A charismatic and irresistible live performer, he recently concluded the epic 2013 leg of the “Moonshine Jungle Tour,” having performed sold-out shows in over 90 cities around the globe.
