USD 10 million for this rubbish? Just Bieber’s infuriating performance at Ambani Sangeet | The Express Tribune

Anant Ambani and Radhika Merchant’s seemingly endless wedding festivities continued with the highly anticipated sangeet last night. Celebrities from Bollywood and Hollywood alike were spotted attending the event. As per Hindustan Times, the night also featured a special performance by Justin Bieber, a video of which went viral on social media. The footage, however, has sparked mixed reactions among netizens – mostly bad.

The Canadian sensation was reportedly paid USD 10 million for his performance at the event. He arrived in Mumbai the same morning and seemingly left his mojo at the airport. Clad in an outfit that consisted of a vest and trousers that progressively slipped lower and lower past his waistline as the night progressed, Bieber took to the stage with the enthusiasm of a sloth and performed hits Peaches, Love Yourself, Where Are U Now? and No Brainer.

Social media of course was flooded with hilariously sarcastic comments about the performance, with one user quipping, “10 million USD for this rubbish,” while another commented, “What lame clothes.” Some even accused Bieber of lip-syncing the entire show, “He’s so dead… And lip-syncing… A big no no. What a joke of an event.” The lack of enthusiasm was a two-way street; a large part of the audience barely knew the words to his songs, they just silently bopped. One user simply wrote two words, “Money lost.”

After his performance at the event, Bieber could not get away fast enough. The Daily Star reported that he was spotted at Mumbai’s Kalina airport on his way back to the US. He was still clad in the attire he wore to the sangeet ceremony. Other performances from the night included Punjabi rapper Badshah and Karan Aujla.
