Biebs runs through a slew of hits with some special guests!

Justin Bieber brought down the house at the 53rd Grammy Awards on Feb. 13 with a bonkers live performance! But it didn’t help him bring home the Best New Artist statue, which went to relative unknown Esperanza Spalding!

The fun started with a video of Justin’s first meeting with Usher four years ago, followed by a brief onstage dialogue between Usher and El Biebz. From there, Justin gave us a brief acoustic taste of “Baby,” followed by a crazy drum interlude. He then channeled Michael Jackson through dance moves in a high-energy rendition of “Never Say Never.” Jaden Smith even stopped by to drop his pint-sized verse!

From there, Usher took over with a redux of his Super Bowl jam “OMG.” Bieber even took the stage near the end of the song to trade lines with Usher!

Our favorite part? When the camera kept panning over Jaden’s parents, Will Smith and Jada Pinkett Smith, who were rapping along to their son’s verse and going crazy with pride. It made them so relatable!

But this doesn’t ease the heartbreak of Biebs being snubbed for his hard work!
