Freestylin' with The Roots with Justin Bieber

It seems as though Jimmy Fallon and "The Tonight Show" can do no wrong.

Wednesday night Justin Bieber appeared on the show as both a guest and musical performer promoting his single "What Do You Mean?"

It wouldn't be "The Tonight Show" without some sort of game or gag, so Fallon decided to pluck a "fan" from the audience and have The Roots perform a free style rap based on that person's interests.

Of course, that fan happened to be J. Biebs, who told Fallon he was an entertainer and felt as though Tyler Perry could play him in a TV show about his life.

Earlier in the show, Bieber explained the backstory to his VMA on stage meltdown. He told Fallon that it was a culmination of things from missed cues, to the overwhelming applause.



At 2013 Billboard Music Awards, Justin took the stage and was shortly booed, so getting a positive reaction from the VMA performance was something very special for him.

The Biebs ended his interview with Fallon by announcing that his album will drop on November 19! Bielibers, you better be ready!
