The music duo — Bruno Mars and Anderson .Paak — performed a cover of Con Funk Shun’s 1982 hit “Love’s Train”, which is also featured on their debut album An Evening With Silk Sonic.
The two hit the stage in matching red suits and were accompanied by a backup band’s vocals, who also wore complementing ensembles.

The performance follows the Valentine’s Day release of their “Love’s Train” studio recording, the fourth single from their album, which was originally sung by the ‘70s R&B/Soul group.
Silk Sonic were nominated for four awards at tonight’s Las Vegas awards ceremony. They went home with the trophy for Top R&B Song for “Leave The Door Open” during the TikTok livestream, which took place ahead of the live broadcast. The two lost Top Duo/Group to BTS and both Top R&B Artist and Top R&B Album to Doja Cat.
