As previously reported, Justin recorded his vocals for the episode back in August. Bieber will play himself, as Marge urges Bart to become more creative and attempt piano lessons. The Biebs only shows up for a second, flanked by cartooned manager Scooter Braun, as they wait outside of a talent show. Simpsons creator Matt Groening had no problem letting the superstar join the cast for a brief role, as Bieber and his family are apparently fans of the show. Other guests on tonight’s episode include Bill Hader (SNL), Jane Krakowski (30 Rock), plus Patrick Stewart.
Bieber tweeted about his appearance earlier, showing a pic of the Springfield version of himself, sporting the yellow tan and his recently re-swept hairdo. He’s decked in typical Biebs garb from head to toe. It’s nice seeing Justin have something positive to talk about, considering he’s been in hot water lately…along with being attacked in Dubai.
To see Bieber in his Simpsons role, check out the episode tonight at 8 p.m. on FOX.
