The Sorry singer performed several tracks from his latest album Purpose, which was released last year.

Justin kept it cas’ and rocked his signature style, comprising of a long grey coat over a plaid shirt and baggy white t-shirt combined with a pair of ripped skinny jeans and Adidas Ultra Boost trainers.

Damn Justin, back at it again with the white Adidas!

Later on in the show, the packed house of Beliebers couldn’t contain themselves when things turned wet and wild.

In music-video style he stood beneath a downpour of water, before removing his shirt to reveal his extensive tattoo collection.
