Bruno Mars has been seeing gold everywhere with his 24K Magic era. The international superstar had a big night at the 2017 American Music Awards.
Mars took home seven awards including Artist of the Year at the 45th annual event, which was held Sunday (Nov. 19) at the Microsoft Theater in Los Angeles. The R&B/pop singer went on to win Video of the Year (“That’s What I Like”), Pop or Rock Male Artist, Pop or Rock Album (24K Magic), Soul or R&B Male Artist, Soul or R&B Album (24K Magic), and Soul or R&B Song (“That’s What I Like”).
In a pre-taped video message from his tour overseas, Bruno thanked his supporters. “Thank you AMAs. Thank you Hooligans. We did it,” he said. “I know it’s because of ya’ll. Thank you for voting for me. I love you guys more than anything.”
