The Black Eyed Peas frontman is joined by his collaborator Justin Bieber via a pre-recorded video played on the giant screen set-up.

Since Bieber was not available to sing live with will.i.am as he is currently trekking across the world for his "Believe" tour, he appeared somewhat virtually, in a pre-recorded video that was played on the giant screen set-up on stage for the special musical number. It was the similar concept that will.i.am used in their music video, where The Biebs was unleashed via a hologram.

The entire performance was quite short, perhaps due to the choreographed routine that took up most of it. will.i.am has been previously open about his being against choreography but he seemed to have no other choice but to perform the synchronized moves that he first displayed in the music video along with his crew of back-up dancers.

will.i.am's other single "Let's Go" with is likewise sharing the spotlight, with will having to give an interview over at KIIS-FM to defend himself against the rip-off allegations made by producers Arty and Mat Zo. The songwriter/record producer cleared the air over the matter, saying that it was all a misunderstanding over unresolved licensing issues.
