Watch Justin Bieber Cry During a Performance of 'Purpose'

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. 

It’s by no means the first time Bieber has had a weepy moment on stage. He famously cried after his comeback performance of "What Do You Mean" at the 2015 VMAs. 

The pop singer will have a chance to let it all out while the world is watching when he performs via satellite from Zurich, Switzerland for this Sunday’s American Music Awards.
