This season of ‘The X Factor (US)’ has been quite lacklustre so it was such a relief to see an artist with actual talent appear on the show. Bruno Mars hit the stage to perform his monster hit single, ‘Locked Out of Heaven’, for the normally bored crowd.
‘Locked Out of Heaven’ topped the Billboard Hot 100 this week and bumped Rihanna’s ‘Diamonds’ from the summit position. Thanks to the success of the record, Mars’ new album, ‘Unorthodox Jukebox’, is expected to sell 140-160K copies by the end of the week and join the rain for the #1 spot on the Billboard 200.
‘Unorthodox Jukebox’ is also nominated for Album of the Year at the 2012 The Lava Lizard Awards. Click here to cast your vote for the winner in that category and more! Also, watch Mars perform on ‘X Factor (US)’ below:
