Uh oh! Did Justin Bieber have a serious microphone malfunction at the American Music Awards Nov. 22? It appears his device went dead after his version of “Sorry” and when he wanted to say something to the audience, it came across as total silence! Yikes.
Justin Bieber, 21, brought the AMAs crowd alive when he closed the show with a medley of songs. He was clearly singing live from his microphone during his opening acoustic version of “What Do You Mean?” but then did a hard mic drop to the floor with it in his second song. He picked it back up and launched into “Sorry” to end the show, but as he tried to address the crowd at the end it was dead!
Justin gave a wild and wet version of his hit “Sorry” to round out his AMAs performance. While rain poured down upon him and his backup dancers, he was getting drenched and kicking around pools of water during the rendition. But after he wrapped up his vocal performance he grabbed his mic and tried to say something, but no words came out of the device. He even stared down at it, clearly in wonder why it wasn’t working! Check out the video above:
We absolutely LOVED Justin’s medley of hits from his new album Purpose that closed out the American Music Awards. He did a gorgeous acoustic rendition of “What Do You Mean?” to kick things off, then moved to another part of the stage to sing some of “Where Are Ü Now.” It was during that song that he threw the mic to the ground and went into an elaborate dance routine that brought the audience to its feet. He picked it back up afterwards and moved to another stage for his elaborate and very wet take on “Sorry,” and that’s when his mic appeared to die afterwards.
