Bruno Mars took home a big honor this week when he won a 2012 Brit Award for Best International Male Solo Artist.
Mars was up against Aloe Blacc, two-time Grammy winners Bon Iver, David Guetta and Ryan Adams.
Mars also performed “Just the Way You Are,” a hit off 2010′s Doo-Wops & Hooligans.
The Hawaii-raised Mars was ecstatic upon receiving his trophy.
“I want to thank everybody in the U.K. that supported my album and came to my shows,” he told the crowd. ”It’s always been a dream of mine just to visit, but the fact that I get to come over here and be a part of this show is incredible.”
