Watch Bruno Mars Get Emotional During “When I Was Your Man” On ‘Ellen’

When He Was Your Piano Man
Bruno Mars stopped by The Ellen DeGeneres Show today (April 3) to play his latest smash, the breakup song “When I Was Your Man.” It’s the most subdued offering on Unorthodox Jukebox, and the singer gave it a fittingly delicate setup for this take: just Bruno, a piano and a whole lot of emoting.

It all earned him a standing O from the faithful Ellen fans — we don’t know if this a common occurrence on her show, because aren’t they standing up and dancing half the time anyway? — but it was a flawless performance deserving of the gesture. Check it out up top.

Fans can expect to see more showmanship like this on Bruno’s Moonshine Jungle World Tour beginning in June.
