Justin Bieber Rocks MSG Creating Amazing Footage for His 3-D Film
Justin Bieber promised he would have plenty of surprises in store for his Madison Square Garden show in New York City, and boy, did he deliver. The 16-year-old pop star was joined on stage by Miley Cyrus, Usher, Ludacris, Jaden Smith, Boyz II Men and more, performing every one of his hits for the audience of Beliebers.
We were at the sold-out show and it was nothing short of amazing. As we mentioned, Justin's upcoming 3-D movie will include footage from his MSG performance, and we have a hunch that a lot of what happened on Tuesday night will end up in the film. Want to hear all the details about the concert? Keep reading.
Justin kicked things off with 'Love Me' and 'Bigger' before talking to the crowd. "What's up, New York City?" he said. "We're gonna have a lot of fun tonight." JB then performed 'U Smile' with Boyz II Men, who, Justin said, inspired him to start singing in the first place. The Canadian heartthrob then sang Boyz II Men's hit 'On Bended Knee' with the influential group.
We hoped that Kanye West would come out for 'Runaway Love,' especially after he just released a remix of the song, but he didn't end up making an appearance during the set. Still, Justin tipped his hat to the iconic rapper during 'Favorite Girl,' when he said, "This one's for you, Kanye," right before transitioning into 'Heartless.'
While we were super stoked about Usher coming out for 'Somebody to Love,' Jaden Smith performing 'Never Say Never' and Sean Kingston singing 'Eenie Meenie' with the Bieb, we kind of knew they were going to show up. However, we were completely surprised when Miley Cyrus walked out and started singing 'Overboard.' (Maybe this was the side project she and Justin were discussing?) She totally killed it, but we wondered if Jessica Jarrell was bummed about Miley was performing her part. It's not like Jessica wasn't available -- she's opening for Justin on the 'My World' tour and was probably right backstage.
As for all those photos and videos you submitted for a chance to be in Justin's movie, a selection of them were displayed on a huge screen above the singer while he performed 'That Should Be Me' and 'U Smile.' If you weren't at the show, you'll just have to wait until his biopic comes out to see if you made the cut.
The concert was completely action-packed, and besides watching Justin do a drum solo and sing and play guitar while suspended from a giant metal heart, the biggest wow factor was Justin's last song and mega single, 'Baby.' Luda made his way onto the stage and JB's back-up dancers pulled out all the stops. The show literally ended with a bang as tons of sparkly confetti exploded from the ceiling and rained down from above.
"Still cant believe last night happened....a night i will never forget," Justin tweeted on Wednesday after his big night. "Just want to thank all the incredible performers who joined me on stage last night...Thank u 2 my heroes BOYZ II MEN, my lil bro Jaden Smith, my big bro Ludacris, my friends Miley Cyrus and Sean Kingston, and my mentor USHER!
