Justin Bieber performed a medley of “Company” and last year’s smash hit “Sorry” at the 2016 Billboard Music Awards. After living hip-hop meme DJ Khaled explained how the pop singer is the first artist to have three songs in the Top 5 of the Hot 100 “at the same damn time,” Bieber started out singing “Company” solo before he was joined by a bevy of dancers to break out a variety of slick dance moves. He then transitioned into a emphatic performance of “Sorry.”
The Canadian pop singer is a 12 time finalist tonight in 11 categories this year — both “What Do You Mean” and “Sorry” are nominated for Top Streaming Song (Audio) — including Top Artist, Top Male Artist, Top Billboard 200 Artist, and Top Hot 100 Artist.
Lately, it seems like the Purpose singer is burnt out from the spotlight. In March, he canceled meet and greets because they left them feeling “drained and unhappy” and “mentally and emotionally exhausted to the point of depression.” Earlier this month, he said he was done taking pictures with fans while in public.
While it’s unknown whether Eric Clapton’s recent endorsement meant anything to Bieber, news of the rock legend giving his approval is just further proof of how far the 22-year-old has come in the past year.
