Bruno Mars has scored his first prime-time television special.
Mars is expected to continue filming during the next few weeks. "He burns the roof off the Apollo while paying respect to its tradition and history".
Mars shares executive producer credits with Ben Winston for the special, which also features Mars' band, the Hooligans, in various sequences created for the show.
Mars is no stranger to primetime television, having performed at a pair of Super Bowl halftime shows. The album and its lead single, "24K Magic", simultaneously hit No. 1 on the iTunes Overall Albums and Overall Songs charts during its week of release.
Bruno has often channeled Apollo legends during his stage performances, including James Brown, Sammy Davis Jr. and Michael Jackson.
