Videos: Justin Bieber Performs 'Believe' Hits in New Year's Rockin' Eve
Beliebers had a blast during "Dick Clark's New Year's Rockin' Eve" as their idol Justin Bieber rocked the annual TV special with three hits from his latest album, "Believe". Dressed in an all-black ensemble of a leather vest and his trademark hoodie plus red sneakers, the pop superstar repeatedly wished fans "Happy New Year" as he headlined ABC's broadcast from the west coast.
The 18-year-old singer dished out three of his most popular hits from his most recent studio effort released in June 2012. With a lone acoustic guitar player serving as his back-up, Bieber sang a stripped-down version of "Boyfriend", perhaps as a preview to his upcoming "Believe Acoustic" album.
He also took the stage to perform his hits "Beauty and a Beat" and "As Long As You Love Me", where Bieber displayed the lock-step choreography he's known for, complete with flashing lights and backup dancers. He even thrilled the audience by briefly lifting his shirt to reveal his newly-developed chiseled abs. Nicki Minaj was not present for her verse on "Beauty and a Beat" but no sweat as rapper Big Sean was on hand for his part in "As Long As You Love Me".
Bieber headlined the west coast telecast of "Dick Clark's New Year's Rockin' Eve with Ryan Seacrest" together with Black Eyed Peas' Stacy Ferguson a.k.a Fergie. Other artists under the wings of Bieber's manager Scooter Braun who were also picked to perform from L.A. were British boyband The Wanted, K-pop sensation PSY, and Carly Rae Jepsen, singer of the YouTube monster hit "Call Me Maybe".
Bieber's "Believe Acoustic" is set to be released on January 29 as he initially revealed on a surprise appearance on "The Ellen DeGeneres Show". It will feature 7 songs plus a bonus track, showcasing Bieber's unplugged renditions of hits from his third and latest studio set "Believe".
