Happy Birthday, Justin Bieber: 5 Great (and Hilarious!) Impressions

Happy Birthday, Justin Bieber!

First things first: Justin Bieber has been having a rough time over the past year or two (mostly his own doing), but there's reason to believe he's turning a corner. He's made several self-aware appearances on Ellen over the past two months, and he'll be the guest "of honor" during a Comedy Central Roast in a few weeks. Not to mention, he assures fans new music is on the horizon. 

We have high hopes for the next step in his career, but it's hard to argue that this less-than-ideal period hasn't also given fans some gifts -- namely in the form of impressions. While Saturday Night Live's Kate McKinnon may (rightly) be most well-known, many have tried their hand at impersonating the Biebs, both from way back when and recently.

Check out just a few of our faves below. (Not to worry; Bieber also finds these funny.)

5. Jimmy Fallon
It seems so innocent now, but back in 2011, there was serious baby mama drama involving Bieber (which turned out to be untrue). When your big song is conveniently called "Baby," the parodies write themselves.

4. Bruno Mars
Turns out Kate McKinnon isn't the only person who's got a Biebs impression locked and loaded for Saturday Night Live

3. Miley Cyrus
Longtime Bieber pal Miley Cyrus poked fun at herself when she hosted SNL -- but also teased her buddy. "All I have to say is point, chin, wink," Cyrus-as-Bieber joked to the camera.

2. Kate McKinnon Part 1
When we're very lucky, a performer emerges to give fans (and, let's be honest, haters) the impression they were waiting for. This is one of those times.

 

1. Kate McKinnon Part 2
McKinnon brought back her Bieber impression when it was completely necessary, a.k.a that time Bieber debuted a Calvin Klein underwear ad.

Happy Birthday, Justin Bieber! We can't wait to see what you have in store next, and we also can't wait to see how it's spoofed.
