Check out a surprise and funny appearance by the teen pop phenom today when we were live video chatting with Justin Bieber's manager, Scooter Braun, on #PerezTV, above!
This week, Justin Bieber kicked off his first-ever headlining arena tour at the XL Center in Hartford, Connecticut, and he isn't going at it alone. He is taking along collaborator and R&B star Sean Kingston as well as pop newbie Jessica Jarrell. Though Jarrell and Bieber haven't known each other for that long, they clearly have already built a rapport together. When they aren't hitting the stage together night after night for their duet "Overboard," Bieber has figured out a more devious way to pass the time, and Jessica is worried she won't be able to keep up.
"He's a goofball. Like we're always pulling pranks on each other," she told MTV News on the tour bus earlier this week before the tour's big kickoff show. "Actually, I'll tell you a secret: Him and his dancers, his side of the people, they walk around with water guns and water balloons and you know we're gonna have a war. We're gonna have a water gun war, which is going to be fun."
Fun, perhaps. But Jessica might want to hit up the water gun firing range before she takes Bieber on. Apparently she's not quite a sharp shooter yet. And apparently he's kind of got good aim. "I've got my water gun! No [I'm not good]!" she laughed about her skills. "So I gotta have some people help me. I'm bad."
This morning Angie from Fairfield Township showed she had the ultimate love for her daughters Miranda and Lila... she allowed us to SHAVE HER HEAD BALD for backstage passes, soundcheck passes, and tickets to his SOLD OUT show at US Bank Arena this Saturday night. Her adopted daughter Lila is going to meet JB!
Justin Bieber shows off his purple pride as he performs at the Sun National Bank Center in Trenton, New Jersey on Thursday night (June 24).
The 16-year-old musician is having a blast on tour so far. Justin tweeted, “In Trenton…Stunners on stage now…we r rockin xbox in the back. Serious hockey battle going on. I’m canadian. Hockey is our thing. Another great night…thank you to all the fans that came and SCREAMED!!! hahaha.. I love u ladies.”
Also pictured is a sneak peek of Justin rehearsing for the 2010 Macy’s Fourth of July Fireworks Spectacular! Justin will be joining the New York Pops and the Mormon Tabernacle Choir for the spectacular which airs on Sunday, July 4th @ 9PM ET/PT on NBC.
Legaci may sounds strange to you but not anymore as they will hit the road together with Justin Bieber's "My World Tour" which start this Wednesday June 23. Yup, Scott Braun hired them as Mr. Bieber backup-singers which means onstage they live between burst of spotlight and their camera time comes in blink and you'll missed flashes. Keep an eye of them always. Don't blink.
Legaci's members are Chris Abad 28, Delfin Lazaro 28, Micah Tolentino 30, and Dominic Manuel 28, where from San Francisco Bay Area has been blending their four part melody since they were in high school influenced mainly on Boyz II Men and Shai. They've been finger-snapping in Saturday Night Live, The View, Ellen DeGeneres and Today Show. They performed on stage on a blowout Wango-Tango by KIIS-FM in Los Angeles.
But success never came easy for them.
Same as any other striving new artist it is their dream to make it in the US mainstream and get noticed by major labels. The group tried the lame traditional route and performed in college campuses, clubs and got same lame results. In mid 2000's they released their own albums a mixed of their own compositions and few cover songs. They crank it up a notch by auditioning television talent shows like American Idol, America Got Talent and MTV's Top Pop Group, but to no avail.
They have one option left and that was YouTube, exactly same as their new boss did. By 2007 they started posting their group performance of any kind but mostly they cover songs of known artist.
Their views on Youtube rose dramatically same as their subscribers. Until one day, they decided to cover insanely famous screaming young teens fave hit song called "Baby" by teenage sensation Justin Beiber. In less than 24 hours after it went live on Youtube they got a call, a call that will surely change their life. It was a call from Scott Braun, the manager of Mr. Bieber.
The next thing they know they joined Justin Bieber live performance on MTV.
Asian-American maybe seen as foreign to mainstream America but Legaci had just joined the fleet of pinoys who set their feet in the door in the likes of Allan Pineda aka Apl.de.ap of Black Eyed Peas, Arnel Pineda vocalist of Journey, aspiring pint-sized pop sensation Charice and Pussycat Doll Nicole Scherzinger (pinoy dad).
Best of luck guys!
From Kayla: I went to Justin Bieber's concert last night in Hartford, CT and it was beyond amazing it was his first stop for his first ever tour. During the last song Justin was performing Baby and Usher came out on stage. The crowd was wild the whole time. All of a sudden Justins mom Patty walked by too. Videos under!
