Bruno Mars Teen Choice 2017 Video


Bruno Mars received the second-ever Visionary Award at Sunday’s 2017 Teen Choice Awards. Watch the video below!

At the ceremony, Yara Shahidi led a tribute to the singer, who was actually in Indiana for his “24K Magic Tour.” In a pre-recorded message, Mars said, “Thank you so much for this ward. This means so much to me… Have no fear, because I got a little surprise for y’all.” He then debuted a preview of his upcoming music video for “Versace On The Floor.”

Teen Choice announced on Thursday that it would celebrate Mars with one of its special honors. The Visionary Award was only given out once before, to Gwen Stefani in 2005. That was more than a decade ago, making it especially noteworthy that the award was chosen for Mars this year. Organizers said the singer was selected for his “innovation and contributions to contemporary music.”

Mars’ history with the Teen Choice Awards dates back to 2010. That year, he scored his inaugural nomination for “Nothin’ On You” in the category of Choice Music: Single. Since then, he’s won four awards and went into tonight with six new nominations. That includes Choice Male Artist and Choice Summer Tour, as well as Choice Song: Male Artist, Choice Summer Song and Choice R&B/Hip-Hop Song for “That’s What I Like.” In addition, “24K Magic” earned a nod for Choice Pop Song.
