Uh-oh! After his lack-luster performance at the 2016 Billboard Music Awards, Justin Bieber’s fans totally lost it on social media, accusing the artist of lip-syncing his ENTIRE bit! Yikes — looks like Justin is in some serious hot water with his usually loyal Beliebers.
Say it isn’t so! Justin Bieber, 22, is facing some intense allegations after his 2016 BBMA performance. Fans took to Twitter immediately after he took the stage in Las Vegas and completely went OFF on the singer for, well, basically doing everything BUT actually singing. But worst of all, Beliebers accused J.B. of not even caring — ouch! Check out their hilarious tweets below and let us know if YOU think Justin lip-synced during music’s biggest night.
The Billboard Music Awards have been filled with amazing performances across the board. From Pink‘s, 36, acrobatic act, to Adele‘s, 28, incredible new music video debut, and even Britney Spears‘, 34, epic medley of her greatest hits. But while most artists went completely all out for their time in the spotlight, it seems like Justin may have been slacking a bit — at least that’s what fans have been claiming. And they are NOT happy about it!
Justin performed “Company” and “Sorry” at the award show. He started off behind a screen as an insane light show happened right before our eyes — but of course the audience could not even see the singer’s face, which only help fuel the lip-syncing rumors. About halfway through the song, the screen lifted up, and Justin came front-and-center showing off his dance moves. Eventually, he segued into “Sorry.” But while his performance ignited a crazy reaction from his live audience — fans at home were LESS than impressed. Check out their tweets:

Pink: flying through the air doing acrobatics AND singing live
Justin Bieber: barely dancing, lip syncing

Justin Bieber does NOT care. Half lip-syncing. Half dancing.

So Justin Bieber’s lip syncing abilities is equivalent to a girl at a party who tries to hard and pretends she’s drunk after a virgin marg.

Worst of all, as Pink performed right after Justin, the singer sat in the audience and looked completely unamused by Pink’s insane performance. Come on, Justin, you could have at least PRETENDED to be interested — or at least taken notes from someone who truly knows how to slay!
Tell us what YOU think, HollywoodLifers — did Justin lip-sync at the BBMAs?
