Justin Bieber Nails His Dance Moves During 2016 Billboard Music Awards Performance

You better Belieb it! Justin Bieber took the stage to perform a medley of his latest single “Company” and fan-favorite track “Sorry” at the 2016 Billboard Music Awards at the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas on Sunday, May 22.

The 22-year-old pop star, who was wearing a white T-shirt, tan jacket and ripped jeans, really stepped up his dance moves for the high-energy set. He kicked off his performance behind a screen with lots of smoke and lights partially obscuring the singer, until the partition lifted and Bieber — now with a buzz cut! — and his backup dancers came out toward the crowd. 

His rendition of “Sorry” was filled with even more lasers and special effects, but the “Purpose” crooner let the backing track play and only chimed in for certain parts of the song.

Immediately following his performance, Bieber accepted the award for Top Male Artist and gave a short acceptance speech, thanking God, his family and his fans. He’s also a nominee in 11 categories for Top Artist, Top Streaming Song and more. He’s even up against his former love and the most followed person on Instagram, Selena Gomez, in the Top Social Media Artist category.

This year’s Billboard Music Awards went much better for Bieber than previous years'. Back in 2013, the Canadian songwriter was booed as he accepted the first-ever Milestone Award, but during his win and performance in 2016, it was all cheers.

Currently, the “Love Yourself” singer is on a short break from his Purpose World Tour before it picks back up again in Winnipeg, Manitoba, June 11.
