On Sunday night, Bruno Mars hit the stage at the MTV Video Music Awards to perform his latest single, Gorilla.

Wearing his signature hat, Mars was accompanied to the Barclays Center stage by his Hooligans. With green laser lights illuminating the performance, and a gorilla projected on the video screen behind him, the R&B singer crooned to the crowd from a raised platform as pyrotechnics and fog surrounded him.

The hip-hop singer's Locked Out Of Heaven was nominated in three different categories. In the running for Video of the Year, Best Male Video, Best Pop Video, the Cameron Duddy directed video seemed to be a major hit across the board. Pulled form the artists 2012 album Unorthodox Jukebox, Locked Out of Heaven wasn't Bruno Mars' only video in the running this year.

Treasure, also culled from last December's release, was nominated for Best Cinematography. Another work from director Cameron Duddy, the track may not have made the list due to sheer popularity but it did score points in the technical department.

While those gathered at Brooklyn's Barclays Center showed their adoration for the singer, other fans undoubtedly relived their favorite moments form the singer's recent Moonshine Jungle Tour as they watched from their couches.

The 27-year-old recently completed the tour in support of his Unorthodox Jukebox release.
