The teen sensation leads an emotional tribute to the star who he calls an "inspiration".
Justin Bieber performed an impromptu rendition of 'Rockin' Robin' at a ceremony for Michael Jackson in Hollywood earlier this evening (26th January).
The 'Baby' singer was introduced to the stage by Jackson's daughter Paris who confessed that her father would have wanted to mentor the singer.
An emotionally charged Justin then explained how influential the 'Thriller' star had been to him.
"Michael meant so much to me and I know he meant a lot to you guys as well," he explained to the crowd.
Shortly after he returned home from the ceremony, the Canadian singer took to his Twitter account to admit how nervous he had been.
"just left the Michael Jackson ceremony...i dont get nervous usually but i was really nervous. to be with his family. he was the greatest!," he wrote.
The ceremony was taking place to honour Michael who passed away in 2009 with his children imprinting the singer's hand and footprints into the famous cement outside
Grauman’s Chinese Theatre in Hollywood, California.
Meanwhile, Justin is currently working on his second studio album 'Believe' and has been tweeting messages from the studio to his fans to update them on his progress.
