Bruno Mars appeared on Ellen to perform "When I Was Your Man" which will be the first and only time he performs the song on TV.
It is a great performance of the song and kind of cool he will not be performing it everywhere. It seems when artists do the talk show run, they only perform their latest song and nothing else.
All you need to do is put Bruno in front of a piano and nothing else.
The song is number one for a reason.-DocFB
Diagnosis: One of the MUST see tours of the year!

What a guy!-DocFB

Chris Tucker was on Ellen where he discussed his new movie "Silver Linings Playbook" and also took time to talk about his friend Michael Jackson. He shared experiences about going with him to the movies and MJ having to put on disguises to go.
He even shared a time where they were already out and he wanted to go to the mall and he just put on a Spider-Man mask and attempted to be unrecognized. This is a person who truly knew him. He needed more people like Tucker around him for sure.
