While making an appearance on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon, the pop-star opened up about what was going through his head after his breath-taking performance.
"It was just so overwhelming for me," he explained."Everything, the performance. I missed some cues so I was a little disappointed with that. Honestly, I just wasn't expecting them to support me in the way they did."
"Last time I was at an award show I was booed. I think it's just like, I worked so hard at this album, I worked so hard at becoming the man I wanna become, and then stepping into these situations you can't help but feel judged," he continued."So I was just feeling judged and just wanting to win so badly and wanting to do what I love so badly, so I just put everything on the line. And I think that's what's so special about the emotional moment at the end, it was authentic, it was real."
"I just wanted it so bad."
Bieber left the crowd speechless at the VMA's during his emotional performance of "Where Are U Now" and his new single "What Do You Mean?" The singer showcased some impressive falsetto dance moves and ended his set hunched over on his knees breathing heavily as tears ran down his face. A redeeming moment for the once troubled pop-star.
Bieber also kept the music going later that night when he performed again during a VMA after-party at West Hollywood hotspot Hooray Henry's.
Justin Bieber's late night appearance ended with the 21-year-old announcing that his new album was set to release on Nov. 13.
