All I Ask Is You Watch Bruno Mars Cover Adele’s “All I Ask” Ballad Off “25”
Singer Bruno Mars stopped by the BBC Radio 1 studios in London yesterday (Nov. 2) to honor his appointment with the show “Live Lounge”, hosted by Clara Amfo. As it’s tradition in this show, the guest stars have to sing two songs in acoustic mode. The first song our beloved Hawaiian singer performed was his current single “24K Magic”, and later he proceeded to do his mandatory cover, a classic of this radio show, and what was the song from another artist Bruno Mars chose to sing? None other than “All I Ask” by Adele, from the album “25”. You know the story between “All I Ask” and Bruno Mars, right? No? Well, shame on you! Bruno co-wrote this precious ballad with Adele! So Bruno Mars couldn’t have picked a more perfect song to cover yesterday at noon time on “Live Lounge”. It was this song or nothing at all.
And although the “24K Magic” performance was nice and fun, the real highlight of Bruno Mars’ “Live Lounge” set was his “All I Ask” performance, which lasted about FIVE LONG MINUTES, five minutes were Bruno served nothing but out-of-this-world-good vocals nonstop. So powerful and he truly gave his all. If I were Bruno, I would have literally fainted of exhaustion after the performance. I got goosebumps all throughout the performance and I really dug Bruno’s “Mariah Carey” moment towards the end.
I hope Bruno has already send the link to this video to Adele, which I’m sure will be crazy excited to click the play button once she reads the title.
*Bruno Mars’ upcoming new album is released November 18th.
