Justin Bieber has been on Jimmy Fallon’s late night programs more than pretty much any show. The pair have bonded over the years, through drum-offs, dancing, interviews and more. He recently delivered a revealing and remarkably down-to-earth interview (following his VMAs performance which ended in tears) – it was one of the first indications of Bieber’s reinvention.
This week, Bieber returned to The Tonight Show once again, this time to perform Sorry, with a little help from The Roots. Slowing the track right back down, we get to hear it in gushing balladic form, complete with dimmed lighting, a bare stage, and a simple spotlight on the Biebs. Halfway through, the beat drops, the lights come up and the dance-floor hit emerges. The Roots back him up, and soon, four frantic backup dancers join The Biebs on stage, emulating the track’s hi-energy video clip.
In related news, Justin Bieber has announced the first leg of what’s looking like a massive world tour. For the Beliebers out here old and new, fingers are crossed for an Australian visit.
