“Preparation. [See you on] New Year’s Eve,” Justin Bieber captioned the short clip he posted to his Instagram late on Sunday (Dec. 27.) In the video, Justin, 26 sings the chorus to his new single, “Holy.” The little bit of rehearsal was enough to impress his wife, Hailey Bieber (née Baldwin), who commented, “My Jaw??? On the floor.” Justin, seemingly missing his wife and feeling a tad bit raunchy, replied, “Ur jaw is other places too, let’s be honest.”
“omg please got to sleep,” replied Hailey, 24, seemingly embarrassed that her husband would make a crude joke in such a public forum. Or, maybe she just wanted Justin to be well-rested going into his big show. Bieber will return to the stage for his first live show since 2017 with T-Mobile Presents New Year’s Eve Live With Justin Bieber. The Dec. 31 live stream starts at 10:15 pm ET / 7:15 pm PT, with Justin’s performance scheduled for 11 pm ET / 8 pm PT. T-Mobile customers get free access to the show through the T-Mobile Tuesdays app, while the general public can purchase tickets for $25.
Justin and Hailey’s exchange comes days after the couple celebrated a socially-distant holiday on a beach. “What a way to spend Christmas night with the absolute love of my whole existence,” Justin captioned a pair of photos of him and Hailey on the sandy shores of some chilly-looking beach. Both Justin and Hailey bundled up for the occasion, with her wearing a fuzzy purple robe while he appeared to keep warm with a giant blanket. “Obsessed with you so much it actually hurts lol,” Justin wrote about his wife.
Before the holiday, Hailey shared a special moment with her fans and Beliebers everywhere. While participating in the viral “post a picture Q&A” Instagram trend, one of her followers asked her to post a shot from the moment she “first …knew you were in love with JB.” Hailey obliged and uploaded a photo of her embracing a shirtless Justin. It’s unclear when this photo was taken, but judging by the smile on Hailey’s face in the pic, the love she has for Justin is unquestionable.
Expect Hailey to be “front row” – if that’s such a thing with a virtual concert – when Justin performs on New Year’s Eve. This concert marks his first live show since canceling the remaining dates of his Purpose tour in 2017. “We’re working on more surprises to watch out for during this special night,” Bieber said in a statement, per Rolling Stone. “I can’t wait to partner on this epic New Year’s Eve concert with them, and give everyone a safe way to kick 2020 out the door, together.”
