You’ve heard the song. You’ve been teased mercilessly with music video previews until the clip finally premiered last week. But you still haven’t seen Justin Bieber perform his new single, “Boyfriend,” live. That all changed tonight (May 8) when Bieber took the stage at The Voice’s finale results show.
The 18-year-old, who was swagged out in jeans and a studded jacket, utilized a staircase, strobe lights, fog, and a bevy of backing dancers — many of whom were sexy ladies — to pull off the debut performance. Biebz was definitely letting the world know he’s not the little kid who crooned “Baby” anymore. Check out his Michael Jackson-style crotch thrusts at 1:20. Swaggy!
“Boyfriend” is the lead single from Justin’s new album, Believe, out on June 19.
