I prefer [a show] that’s a bit more raw," Mars said. He mostly held true to that promise on Saturday, when he performed a sultry version of "Gorilla" underneath a solo spotlight (though he couldn't resist a few fire blasts.

"Thank you DC!" Mars tweeted afterward. "Last night was magical for me. WE BACK AT IT!!!"
