BBC’s Radio 1 Live Lounge has been on a roll lately, and following on from Pink‘s cover of Alicia Keys‘ hit single “Girl On Fire,” singer/songwriter Bruno Mars takes over the lounge for not only a cover, but a full set of songs including new material from his album Unorthodox Jukebox, joined by his lively band.

Mars and his band please fans with a couple of crowd pleasers in the form of “Grenade” and new single “Locked Out Of Heaven,” but take things a step further by also giving a live performance of new track “Show Me,” which has a Caribbean feel to it with steel pans, taken from his Unorthodox Jukebox LP.

Mars’ set is filled with surprises and lots of fun, with the obligatory cover song being ambitious with Jimi Hendrix‘s “Fire,” but then taking it all the way left with a couple of funny renditions of songs from The Little Mermaid Disney film. Listen to the full set below.
