Justin Bieber was in good spirits when he arrived in Cincinnati as part of his summer tour. The 16-year-old tweeted, "Cincy....the party on wheels has arrived."

But later that day, Justin's usual kickback and easygoing attitude turned more somber while singing "Down to Earth" during his show. The song chronicles Justin's pain over his parents' split when he was just a kid, something that many of his fans can probably relate to themselves.

Mommy, you were always somewhere,
And Daddy, I live out of town,
So tell me how could I ever be, normal somehow?
You tell me this is for the best,
So tell me why am I in tears?
So far away and now I just need you here

During the song, photos of a young Justin flashed on a large screen and he sat down on the edge of stage while choking back tears. Were any of you at this show?
