Justin Bieber is used to the sight of Beliebers weeping at his concerts. But at a show in Germany this week, the pop idol was the one choking up.

Bieber stopped to wipe tears from his eyes as he performed the title track from his latest hit album, Purpose.

Video shot during the show Wednesday (Nov. 16) at Frankfurt's Festhalle (and shared by Hollywood Life) catches the singer's emotional moment as he paused to dry his eyes mid-song with, of all things, his Metallica shirt.
