Bruno Mars Performs Adele’s ‘All I Ask’ At BBC Radio 1’s Live Lounge
It’s been a while since there’s been an exciting, ear-catching Live Lounge on BBC Radio 1. Enter Bruno Mars – the R&B/pop singer who’s currently promoting his forthcoming record ‘24K Magic’.
Yes, he performed some older hits like ‘Locked Out Of Heaven’ and ‘Treasure’ during his Live Lounge stint as well as the title track off his new LP. What many weren’t expecting was him to flip the song he wrote for Adele’s ‘25′ into a dreamy, Michael Jackson-esque ballad from the 70’s.
Of course it’s always a crime to cover Adele, especially when it comes to a ballad like ‘All I Ask’. There’s no question that Bruno didn’t top Adele’s performance – but he made the song his own.
Thoughts on Bruno’s version of Adele’s heartwrenching track from ‘25′?
