Last night was a star-studded event when Ariana Grande’s The Honeymoon Tour made its stop in Inglewood, California. Fans in attendance in the audience at The Forum were treated to expected performances from opening acts Cashmere Cat and Rixton as well as the main event, an eighteen-song set performed by Ariana Grande. What they were not expected was an appearance by pop superstar Justin Bieber, who hopped onstage to perform during Grande’s hit filled performance. This is Bieber’s second time joining The Honeymoon Tour, and this time, the duo got a little steamy onstage.
Justin Bieber first appeared onstage during Grande’s performance of her single “Love Me Harder,” filling in the vocals that were originally supplied by The Weeknd. During the performance, Bieber seemed to get a little flirtatious with the “Break Free” siren as he wrapped his arms around her waist from behind, swaying along to the beat. After the raunchy song, the duo also performed Bieber’s “As Long As You Love Me,” before Grande let the Canadian hit-maker have a moment in the spotlight to perform his current single “Where Are U Now,” a collaboration with Jack U.
The Biebs previously joined Grande onstage during her March 28th show in Miami, Florida. The duo performed the same songs together, without the raunchy interlude; however, during the performance, it seemed as though Bieber kept forgetting the words to his song. It was his first live performance in quite some time, so it may be explained away by a case of nerves. This time around, he seemed to be a little more comfortable. In fact, some people may think he may have gotten a little too comfortable.
Ariana Grande’s longtime boyfriend and hot rapper Big Sean hopped on his social media accounts after the Inglewood performance, tweeting out, “this kid is about to learn not to touch my girl like that. Beliebe that.” Sean has also made appearances on The Honeymoon Tour, but he is currently on his own promotional tour across Canada in support of his current album Dark Sky Paradise. Since its posting, the tweet has been deleted. On the other hand, Justin Bieber had nothing but positive things to say about his experience onstage, tweeting out, “love the stage. Thanks for having me Ariana Grande and thanks LA. Gotta tour again soon.” Thus far, Grande hasn’t chimed in her opinions about the performance, but it can be assumed that the duo were just playing along with the theme of the song.
