Update: He's in the audience! But he just talked to Ryan Seacrest for a few seconds before watching Usher's performance. Stay tuned. We still don't think he'll perform.

We're watching American Idol right now waiting to see if Justin Bieber will indeed make a special appearance as had been widely reported early this week. But then we read he wouldn't be performing live, but rather, he'll tape a performance to air on 'Idol' later in the season.

However, after surprising fans at a Ludacris concert last night, we thought maybe he was just trying to surprise viewers. Sneaky Bieber...you never know where he'll show up next. It's totally possible he didn't want his fans to find out so it would be a pleasant surprise.

Another theory...crowd control.

Yes, Bieber has achieved Jonas Brothers circa 2008 status, meaning that as soon as fans find out where he is at, they rush to catch a glimpse him. And after call-the-police crowds in Paris and at a New York shopping mall earlier this year (the latter resulted in Bieber's manager being arrested), it is very possible his appearance was played down to discourage thousands of fans from rushing over to Fox studios.
Have you seen Justin's video for 'Never Let You Go' yet? If not... enjoy!
