The VMA pre-show performer a lot of people on Twitter got him confused with was our guy Austin Mahone!
Not only was the newbie singer up for his first MTV VIdeo Music Award but he was also one of the pre-show performers along with Ariana Grande. Watch her performance here!
During Austin's "What About Love" live gig a lot of people on Twitter couldn't help but compare him to the Biebs.
"dear lord no, austin mahone is a younger bieber. NOOOOO #vmas," one Twitter user wrote during his performance.
""So... Austin Mahone ISN'T the same thing as Justin Bieber? Could have fooled me. #VMAreact #VMAs #VMFugs," user @fuggirls tweeted.
We totally see where they're coming from BUT we think they should give him a break! He DID take home the Artist To Watch VMA! See all of the night's winners HERE!
Watch his entire VMA pre-show performance above.
Do you think Austin acts and looks too much like Bieber?
