If you are a fan of Bruno Mars, this should excite you. He is billed to perform his fun-loving new song “24K Magic” at the MTV European Music Awards.

The event will be broadcast live from Rotterdam on November 6, the organisers have announced.

According to the  network, Mars is the first in a series of performers it has announced for the televised spectacle.

“24K Magic,” is a party anthem with synthesizers and funk beats reminiscent of early Janet Jackson. It came out last week as the first single off Mars’s album.

The 31-year-old multi-instrumentalist from Hawaii became a fixture on Top 40 radio with pop tracks from his last album, 2012’s “Unorthodox Jukebox.”

Mars had been comparatively silent as he prepared his new album. But he played the Super Bowl halftime show in February.  And on Saturday will feature on “Saturday Night Live,” both major draws on US television.
