Last night, the world’s most famous Chambelan Justin Bieber hit a high note, figuratively, in his career with a stellar performance of his two biggest hits to date on the VMAs stage. The two tracks, produced by Jack U aka Diplo & Skrillex, have been major commercial successes and seem to be giving everyone the feels, including Bieber himself.
At the end of his performance, he broke down into tears, which was pretty much the only moment of the night that didn’t feel canned and staged. It seems like a real missed opportunity that no one bottled those Bieber Tears for eBay sales and holistic medicine use, but that is neither here nor there.
In honor of Biebs’ stage feels, we revisited 7 times artists got real verklempt on stage and made us shed a single a tear in solidarity.
Amy Winehouse in Brazil
This footage of Amy crying on stage at one of her performances in Brazil is really hard to watch without getting choked up.
Jennifer Lopez in Connecticut
We love JLo forever but we kind of want to cry like 50% of the time she sings live. Watch her hold back tears on stage when it all got to be tew much.
Demi Lovato in Los Angeles
Even if you don’t like her music, you can’t deny Demi Lovato has some chops on her. Watch her tear up during her performance of her song ‘Skyscraper’.
Gianmarco in Peru
At the 8:40 second mark, Peruvian singer and songwriter Gianmarco definitely caught some feels while celebrating his 15th career anniversary.
Enrique Iglesias in Chicago
Enrique caught some hard sadz when he invited a fan onstage and shared their stories of family members they had lost to cancer. It’s a touching scene that is super emotional, as long as you can tune out the sound of screams from the audience.
Selena Gomez in Brooklyn
Like her famous ex boyfriend, Selena Gomez gave it her all on stage at the Barclay’s Center in New York City while singing her song “Love Will Remember’. If this doesn’t touch your heart, make sure yours is still functioning.
Adrienne Bailon on The Real
Singer-turned-TV personality Adrienne Bailon ended her singing hiatus to perform a tribute to Selena Quintanilla on the daytime talk show, The Real. Bailon payed tribute to the fallen singer by performing a cover of “I Could Fall In Love.”
