Justin Bieber performs at 102.7 KIIS FM's Wango Tango at StubHub Center on May 9, 2015 in Los Angeles, California. 

Between a highly anticipated performance and the release of a new music video, Justin Bieber had a lot to look forward to at the MTV Video Music Awards Sunday (Aug. 30). So what better way to get ready for such a big night than to smooch one of the VMAs' legendary pop divas?

Bieber Instagrammed a video of himself walking around the Microsoft Theater in Los Angeles checking out the seating arrangements and joking around with some of the place cards, including the one for Britney Spears. After telling Bruno Mars' card that he'd catch a grenade for him and Billy Ray Cyrus' that he broke his achy breaky heart, Bieber found Spears' spot and told her (photo), "I just like that look that you give me. I know you'd feel what I feel."

In a second video, Bieber continues his rounds with Kanye West's, John Legend's, and Chrissy Tiegen's spots, only to return to Spears' to pull a Spider-Man kiss on the singer's picture. Who knows if Bieber got a chance to profess his love to Spears at the actual event, but he definitely wasn't afraid to show the world.
