Justin Bieber’s Atlanta crowd got quite the treat on April 13th when he slowed things down during his Purpose Tour, and began performing a cover of Usher’s “U Got it Bad.” Fans got excited about the cover, but then things went next-level crazy when Usher himself walked out onstage to join Bieber.
In fan-captured video, a dreadlocked Bieber sits front and center with an acoustic guitar, strumming the song’s opening chords. He pauses after the first few lines, stands up and says, “Wait a minute.” He then turns his back to the audience to greet Usher, who walks out with a big grin on his face. Needless to say, the crowd loses its ever-loving mind. Bieber wraps his arm around the R&B singer from behind for a quick hug before the two start back in on the song.
After “U Got It Bad,” Usher sang two more songs with the Biebs, including “I Don’t Mind” and “U Don’t Have to Call” (via Idolator).
Following the show, Usher tweeted his appreciation for Bieber, and Bieber tweeted his love for Usher right back. The two have been close since Usher helped get Bieber signed after he was first discovered on YouTube. Watch their sweet reunion below.
