The 'Boyfriend' singer says the three artists are like a family unit together.

Justin Bieber has described both Usher and Carly Rae Jepsen as "family" and says performing at the Billboard Music Awards on Sunday (20th May) was a big moment for them.

The 'Never Say Never' singer was joined on the show's bill by both Usher and Carly, who performed their singles 'Scream' and 'Call Me Maybe, respectively, and Justin admits it was a good feeling to all be there together.

"Not a competition. It's all love," Justin told MTV News, about the relationship between himself, Carly and Usher.

"We're all a family," Justin explained. "Carly is my artist, and I'm Usher's artist, so it's kind of cool that we're all performing here, together."

The 18 year-old singer took to the stage in Las Vegas yesterday to give a crowd-pleasing performance of his recent hit single 'Boyfriend', and Justin says getting to perform again was great.

"I've been working hard, and I can't wait to show the fans what I've been working so hard on," the 'Mistletoe' singer added, ahead of his performance.

Justin Bieber is set to release his brand new album 'Believe' on 19th June and will head out on stage at Wembley Stadium on 9th June for the Capital FM Summertime Ball.
