Looking for your daily dose of cringe, dear readers?
Teen dream Justin Bieber joined pop princess Ariana Grande on stage in a failed duet of her smash hit, “Love Me Harder”, which she originally performs alongside The Weekend.
Bieber, who has literally ONE job – to memorize lyrics and sing them – fumbled his way throughout the Saturday night performance in Miami.
“So I feel bad, I forgot the words Ariana,” he confessed while performing on stage at the American Airlines arena. “I’ve been trying to memorize them backstage for like an hour!”
The crowd, however, didn’t seem to care and continued to go bonkers throughout the entire performance, which also included Grande joining in on a sing-a-long with Bieber on two of hits, “All That Matters” and “As Long As Your Love Me”.
The singers, who are both 21-years-old, had some pretty awkward chemistry on stage, and the duet was apparently set up by the performers’ shared manager, Scooter Braun.
“Scooter was the brains behind the idea,” dished an insider to HollywoodLife.com. “He wanted to get Justin back out on stage because he wanted him to reconnect with his fan base. Scooter sees it that if you like Ariana, you like Justin, so he paired them together.”
In an attempt to make up for his mishap, Bieber apologized on his Instagram by posting a snap of him and Grande on stage together with the caption, “Had fun with u Ariana, even tho I forgot all the words haha.”
