Bruno Mars showed off another layer of his incredible talents with a riveting acoustic take on his hit, “That’s What I Like,” on Charlie Rose.

While Mars is not your typical Charlie Rose guest, the five-time GRAMMY-winning singer’ stripped-down performance is one to remember. Even with the show’s stark and sedate environment, Mars keeps his omnipresent backing singers with him, and he does synchronized dances with them. While sitting down.

Below, watch the performance, as well as the interview where Mars talks about his inspirations and his process.

Mars is set to debut his first prime-time television special, Bruno Mars: 24K Magic Live at the Apollo, Wednesday, Nov. 29 at 10 pm ET/PT on CBS.
