You can plan a show, you can learn a bunch of sick dance moves and you can pack out a club with die-hard fans who are keen to sing along to your bops, but it helps if you actually know your own lyrics!
Justin Bieber learnt this the hard way during a performance at 1OAK in New York City on May 23.
He was singing his latest hit “Despacito” with The Chainsmokers but when he got to the chorus, he was unable to sing the Spanish lyrics live so he sang “blah blah blah dada dada blah” instead.
As the performance was getting from bad to worse, he decided to take the easy way out and held the microphone to the crowd to let them take over.
Thankfully for us, the hilar footage was captured by TMZ along with a bunch of sneaky fans.
