10 of 14: Bruno Mars, 25, is a singer-songwriter and music producer known for incorporating multiple genres into his work and writing hit songs like Cee Lo Green's hit "Forget You." Mars was nominated in seven categories at the 2011 Grammy Awards and took home the Grammy for Best Male Pop Vocal Performance for 'Just the Way You Are.'

"Bruno is part of this new wave of musicians who can do everything: sing, play, write, produce. When he performs live, nothing is prerecorded or fudged. It's a straight-up, classic performance. That's so rare these days," B.O.B. wrote of his friend and fellow musician.
