Justin Bieber Crying VMAs Video


Justin Bieber performed “What Do You Mean?” at Sunday’s 2015 MTV Video Music Awards, the first live performance of his new song. He broke down crying at the end. Watch below!

As Gossip Cop has reported, “What Do You Mean?” premiered on Friday, and broke the record for the fastest song to hit number one on iTunes. The track is Bieber’s first solo single in years, and the lead song for his upcoming album, which will be released in November. All of that made the VMAs the setting of his most important gig in a long time.

Rehearsal photos had indicated that Bieber would be joined by male and female backup dancers dressed in all white, as Gossip Cop previously reported, with performance basked in flashing lights. When it came time for the real deal approximately one hour into the ceremony, Bieber actually began with “Where Are U Now.”

He then segued into “What Do You Mean?” and did a voiceover midway through, talking about his journey, and the mistakes he’s made. He was then lifted into the air, and when he came down and the song ended, the superstar burst into tears. It seems the emotional moment of Bieber’s big comeback really got to him.

And Bieber’s big night is set to continue. Around 11 p.m. Eastern, the music video for “What Do You Mean?” will debut via Vevo. The clip co-stars Xenia Deli and John Leguizamo. Gossip Cop, of course, will have it posted as soon as it’s out. In the meantime, check out the VMAs performance below!
