When Justin Bieber's Comedy Central roast airs on March 30, Beliebers might want to pay close attention to see if the pop star did actually shed some tears. According to Roast Master Kevin Hart, Bieber may have nearly cried during the show.

"It went a little rough. I'm not gonna lie," Hart said on Jimmy Kimmel Live on March 16. "There was some moments where [I thought] 'Justin's gonna cry in the car'."

"You know how you can look at a person and they're trying to have a good time, but you can tell there's a tear? There's one moment where I looked at Justin and he's like [laughing and crying]," Hart further recalled of what went down at Saturday's taping. "It's like a laugh, but it's not. I kept pointing at him like 'You'd better hold back, boy. You don't let them cameras see it come down.' There was one knee slap where I think he covered up a cry."

All joking aside, Hart thinks the roast was a good place for Bieber to clear the air.

"It got a little rough. But I will say this I will say at the end of it, what I love the most and I will say this here, Justin Bieber stood on stage and he gave his rebuttal," he said. "And, at the end of it, it was more about him acknowledging all of the stuff that he's done, saying that he's now in a different place of life [and] he's ready to mature and move on."

"I think that's such a nice place to do it because it's like 'Hey, let me be an adult. Let me be a man now and let me go on with my life.'"
