Pop star Justin Bieber appeared emotionally on “Saturday Night Live.”
At the end of his score, Justin seemed to be overwhelmed with emotion, keeping his hands on his knees.
For his second appearance, Justin – who previously sang on the show in 2010, 2013 and earlier this year – performed his single ‘Lonely’ with the aid of Benny Blanco.
The chart-topping star has recently released a music video for the single, which reflects on his popularity and success in his teenage years.
The video shows Justin struggling to cope with the stresses of stardom and the pop star recently touched on the topic under the candid Instagram caption.
The “Yummy” hitmaker-who is married to model Hailey Bieber-wrote, “Lonely’s out now with @itsbennyblanco. When he and @finneas showed me this song to be honest, it was hard to listen to considering how hard it was to get through some of these chapters. I went to the studio and sang through it that wasn’t easy, but I really started to see the value of telling this story!
Justin-whose video features 14-year-old actor Jacob Tremblay as a young version of himself-recognized feeling emotional when he viewed the video.
He said, “Being someone in my place, I think it’s powerful to show vulnerability, and that’s why I think this song is so powerful! And @jacobtremblay is so talented. It’s been emotional to see him playing me from the outside looking in (sic)”
