Bruno Mars named 2013 Billboard Artist of the Year: Rock out to his best performances
Mars' No. 1 album "Unorthodox Jukebox" enjoyed an impressive 10-month run on the Billboard 200 chart, spawned three top 10 singles -- "Locked Out of Heaven," "When I Was Your Man," "Treasure" -- and the sexy new jam "Gorilla."

In honor of Mars' new title, here is a roundup of some of his most memorable performances from the aforementioned award shows.
