But you know what Justin would say, Beliebers? Don’t cry. Because big girls don’t cry. And neither does he.
In a new clip from his upcoming appearance on “Lip Sync Battle,” the 21-year-old channels his inner tortured soul by tackling Fergie’s 2006 ballad “Big Girls Don’t Cry.” As Justin belts out the touchy-feely chorus, he breaks out all the pop heartthrob moves we’ve come to love him for, including a super seductive hand-down-the-leg stroke that almost legitimately gave us a stroke. Even color commentator Chrissy Teigen can't help but get into it.
Justin caps the sensitive performance by taunting his opponent, Pro Football Hall of Famer Deion Sanders, who’s now the subject of our eternal jealousy because of the way Justin gently caresses his cheek. Sigh.
So, yes, this is a far cry from Justin’s OTHER “Lip Sync Battle” performance, which was teased in a clip released in April. In that one, Biebs goes full-on Ozzy Osbourne with a bonkers, wig-tastic rendition of “Crazy Train.” Fergie, Ozzy… the dude’s definitely got an admirable range.
Check out Justin’s full episode of “Lip Sync Battle” when it airs Thursday (July 16) at 10 p.m. on Spike.
