Bruno Mars has been battling with Katy Perry for the top spot on the pop charts for a few months now, and now he's one-upped her with her own song, performing a stripped-down cover of her "California Gurls" on BBC Radio 1's Live Lounge.
My thing with Katy Perry is that she really can't sing. Her songs are good and catchy, but her vocals are a hot mess most of the time. Bruno can SANG. And his take on the song is fantastic. Love the ad-libs and the giggling and the Beach Boys' homage at the end.
