When Justin Bieber last appeared on the Today Show earlier this month, he was left to answer Matt Lauer’s questions about the paternity suit filed against him by Mariah Yeater. But with all that mess behind him — well, possibly — the 17-year-old was able to return to the morning program and simply sing. Bieb brought out Usher for their holiday duet “The Christmas Song” before launching into “Never Say Never” and “Mistletoe”. Watch below.
This time around, Bieber’s interview with Lauer was much more lighthearted — there was plenty of talk about being being thankful for the fans, and that’s about as edgy as it got.
Probably the most notable thing about these performances is the fact that Justin’s teenage voice is taking a long time to change, and, vocally, he’s not really at the top of his game these days.
Best wishes for speeding through those growing pains, Bieber!
