One of our favorite parts about awards shows are the live performances because, duh, THOSE KILLER ONSTAGE ENSEMBLES. Tonight’s Billboard Music Awards were no different—Justin Bieber ba-rought the amazingness in his glow-in-the-dark neon yellow and white outfit while performing his latest single “Boyfriend.” He wore a glowing tee and exposed-zipper white leather vest paired with glow-in-the-dark piping around the edges of his pants. The best part, though, were the accessories! He sported silver studded sneakers with glowing soles and laces with matching fingerless studded gloves that ALSO had a touch of glowing green around the edges. He kept his hair super simple by swiping it up and off his face, but, um, doesn’t something seem oddly familiar about this whole glowing onstage ensemble thing? It feels like we’re having SERIOUS déjà vu.
Ahhhh, now we remember. This looks just like Nicki Minaj’s Billboard Music Awards ensemble from last year! She too rocked a glow-in-the-dark get-up with body-con webbing just like Biebs’ backup dancers. Unlike Justin’s ladies, though, she (thankfully!) did not wear white face paint or chopsticks in her hair, but it looks like the Billboard Awards can’t get enough of these fluorescent ensembles. Luckily, neither can we!
