About Kelly Clarkson

Kelly Clarkson has earned herself millions of devoted fans thanks to her feisty, straight-talking lyrics. Clarkson's hits such as "Miss Independent," "Since U Been Gone," "Walk Away," "Never Again," and now "Mr. Know It All," are bold empowerment anthems, which she sings to the fullest with her soulful, powerhouse voice. As is well known by now, Clarkson first appeared on the public's radar in 2002 during the first season of AMERICAN IDOL. Of course, Clarkson won and went on to become an international pop icon, selling over 20 million albums worldwide and notching nine Top 10 singles on the Billboard Hot 100 chart. In addition to her recently released album, "Stronger," Clarkson has released four prior albums including 2003's double-platinum No. 1 "Thankful," 2004's 6x platinum "Breakaway" (which sold over 12 million copies worldwide, spawned five Top 10 hits and stayed on the charts for two years), 2007's platinum-selling "My December" and 2009's "All I Ever Wanted," which debuted at No. 1 on the Billboard Top 200 and produced the smash singles "My Life Would Suck Without You" and "Already Gone."

About Bruno Mars

Singer, songwriter, producer and musician, Bruno Mars feels most at home when he's performing. Born to a musical family in Honolulu, HI, Mars practically was raised on the stage, due to his father, a Latin percussionist from Brooklyn, having organized a Vegas-style revue that featured the entire family, including his mother, a vocalist. As soon as he graduated high school, Mars left Hawaii for Los Angeles with dreams of launching his career as a performer. Those dreams got put on hold, however, when The Smeezingtons, the songwriting/production team he founded with Philip Lawrence and Ari Levine, suddenly took off. The trio has crafted major hits for a diverse roster of talent, including Flo Rida's "Right Round", Travie McCoy's "Billionaire", and Brandy's "Long Distance." With the 2010 release of his debut album "Doo-Wops & Hooligans," Mars has gone on to become an international star. He has sold 30 million singles worldwide, and was honored with a place on the 2011 Time 100 list. For more information, visit www.brunomars.com.
