The pint-sized singer belts out 'Boyfriend', 'As Long As You Love Me', 'All Around the World' and 'Die in Your Arms' from his album 'Believe', as well as his previous first hit single 'Baby'.
After days camping out outside Rockefeller Center, Beliebers were treated to Justin Bieber's mini concert on "Today" show Friday, June 15. Donning a black and white jacket on top of matching t-shirt, the Canadian teen heartthrob performed new songs "Boyfriend", "As Long As You Love Me", "All Around the World" and "Die in Your Arms".
The 18-year-old singer enlisted the help of his collaborator Big Sean when delivering "As Long As You Love Me". "Just came thru n rocked the today show!" the G.O.O.D. Music rapper tweeted after taking the stage with the boyfriend of Selena Gomez. "Luv to @justinbieber for giving that opportunity. My whole Fam was watching. #heymom."
Not only showcasing singles from latest studio installment "Believe", the "Never Say Never" singer also sang fan favorite "Baby", which was lifted off his second album "My World 2.0". During most of his sets, he was joined on the stage by back-up dancers.
In an interview with "Today" co-host Matt Lauer, Bieber talked about his upcoming June 19 release. "I think [this album] is about proving people wrong and going out there and making good music and going out there and performing better than everyone else," he said. "That's what you have to do to cross over. Or else I'm just gonna be another teen heartthrob, but I want to be remembered."
The pop/R&B artist seemed to be quite embarrassed when asked about the incident in which he ran into glass walls during a concert in Paris. "Let's not talk about it," he tried to dodge the question. "I'm pretty clumsy and I don't see glass walls. I've had concussions, I used to play hockey."
Also during his visit to the NBC morning show, Bieber helped Lauer to compose his first tweet. "Hello. Everyone go buy Justin bieber's album #believe coming out June 19th," so read the message posted on the anchor's account as suggested by the young singer.
