“Ariana and Justin loved it. They loved the reaction,” an insider tells HollywoodLife.com EXCLUSIVELY. It was an especially big deal for the “Baby” singer, who used the performance as promotion for his Comedy Central Roast, which airs March 30. “People are looking for Justin online and then will be reminded to tune in to see more of him when the Roast airs,” the insider adds.
And us fans thank YOU, Justin!
It’s been quite some time since Justin’s performed live, and while he gave quite an impressive performance alongside Ariana, there was a brief moment where he started singing the wrong lyrics to “Love Me Harder”! Luckily, the former Nickelodeon star quickly jumped in to help out, and at the end of the song, Justin made sure to apologize to the audience and his performance partner.
“So I’m feeling a little bad.I forgot the words, Ariana,” he said. “I’ve been trying to memorize them backstage for like an hour, I feel so bad. I’m so sorry. Do you guys forgive me for forgetting the words? I feel terrible.”
And, judging by the fans’ enthusiastic reaction, they were totally okay with the flub!
