Ellen DeGeneres Makes Bruno Mars Blush, Shows Footage Of Him As Lil Elvis

Becky Bain / January 6, 2011

After performing a stripped down version of his gutwrenching single “Grenade”, Bruno Mars — whose debut album Doo-Wops & Hooligans jumped right back into the Billboard Top 10, sat down with Ellen DeGeneres this morning for a chit-chat. The talk mostly consisted of Ellen flooding the singer with compliments, then turning into a Proud Mom to show the audience an ancient clip of 5-year old Bruno playing a lil Elvis impersonator in the 90s romantic comedy, Honeymoon In Vegas. Jump below to watch the Grammy nominee perform his sad song… and maybe get just a wee bit embarrassed.
