On the road with

Pop superstar Jason Mraz has many pre-show rituals, but he says one takes precedent over all the rest.

"Before a show I like to take a pee, and I encourage all audience members to do the same, because the show can be quite long," Mraz joked.

The singer returned to the TODAY plaza to perform hits from his new album "Yes!" and stopped by the Orange Room to dish on what life is like for him and his Raining Jane bandmates on the road, including a secret (well, not anymore) handshake they like to do before each show.
