Bruno Mars’ Co-Writer on the 3 Ingredients for the Perfect GRAMMYs Performance

Published

They make it look easy, but a lot goes into pulling off an amazing GRAMMYs performance

ET’s Cameron Mathison chatted with Philip Lawrence, Bruno Mars’ co-writer and producing partner, whom you’ve seen in the video for “Uptown Funk” and who also worked with Mars on some of his biggest songs, including “24K Magic” and the singer’s latest Cardi B-assisted jam, “Finesse.”

This Sunday, Lawrence -- who is up for four GRAMMYs of his own -- will be taking the stage alongside Mars, but not before he gives us the three ingredients to having the perfect GRAMMY performance.

“It's most important to start with the vision, so we'll leave that up to Bruno,” Lawrence explains.

“Then you have to have rehearsal,” he adds. “We're looking particularly at 10 to 12-hour days, you know, where we're going in, working on the choreography.”

And last but not least, “The moves,” he shares. “You've gotta have the moves, baby!”

Sounds like a recipe for GRAMMYs success.

And just like the mix for a perfect performance, you’ve gotta have the right mix for the perfect cocktail, something Absolut Lime, the Official Spirits Partner of the GRAMMYs knows very well.

Cameron toasted Philip with the "Absolut Lime Vodkarita, a signature cocktail for GRAMMYs week."

The GRAMMY Awards will be broadcast live on CBS from Madison Square Garden on Sunday, Jan. 28 at 7:30 p.m. ET / 4:30 p.m. PT.
