His performance of “Mirrors” was lively and soulful — he definitely has the vibe for this era down — and he seemed to be in good spirits when he sat down for a chat with Ellen to talk about his marriage to Jessica Biel, who inspired the song.
“Every once in awhile,” he told Ellen, “I catch a glimpse of her when she doesn’t see me looking. And I [have] this moment where I’m like, ‘If you never make a good decision, i you only make bad decisions for the rest of your life, you’ve made one really good decision. Because she’s just — it’s nice to marry your friend. It’s nice to marry your best friend. It suits me.”
Insert collective “Aww.”
Ellen also gave Justin a very special wedding gift: A rather large portrait of her and Justin gazing lovingly at each other, from his last appearance on the show. He said he’s hanging it above his bed. Obviously.
