Oh no! Justin Bieber took the stage in LA for the BBC Live Lounge on Sept. 1, and hecompletely forgot his own lyrics! Despite the fumble, he managed to get through the performance, but what happened to JB? We’ve got the details here!
Justin, 23, joined the BBC Radio 1 Breakfast Show to perform his hit song with DJ Snake, “Let Me Love You,” and only seconds into the single, he forgot some of the lyrics. Instead, he had to substitute the forgotten words for “something.” Yikes! It may have been easier to dodge if it were a regular concert performance, but since it was a live acoustic show, the mistake was blaring.
So what’s up with the Biebs? Well, it turns out that even chart-topping artists like Justin get the jitters sometimes. “I don’t usually get nervous but tonight I was thrown off and I was,” the “Sorry” singer confessed after leaving the show. “Sorry about that. Really wanted to be my best. Hope u all had fun.” Aww it’s okay Justin! Nerves can get the best of anyone! But despite the mess up, Justin managed to get through the number in amazing pitch! Seriously, for the words that he did get right, he sounded like the JB we all know and love.
And BBC Radio also shouted out Justin for the great show. “S/O
@justinbieber for that INSANELY AMAZING performance for #R1LiveLoungeMonth – what a guy,” the official BBC Radio Twitter account tweeted. SO sweet!
I don't usually get nervous but tonight I was thrown off and I was. Sorry about that. Really wanted to be my best. Hope u all had fun

To give Justin the benefit of the doubt, he’s had a pretty jam-packed year with very few breaks. The “Love Yourself” singer recently finished up his five-month Purpose Tour, and he admitted that the tour was taking a toll on him physically and emotionally. Can you really blame him?! He even cancelled his meet and greets to focus on the music, but still said he was having a difficult time dealing with the stresses of being a performer on the road.
So things happen, and even singers forget the words some time. We’re sure JB will nail it next time. Plus, his rumored GF, Sofia Richie, 18, will probably know the best thing to cheer him up….
HollywoodLifers, what did you think of Justin’s BBC live performance?
