As he performed at LA’s Roxy Theatre on Tuesday night, the UK R’n’B pioneer brought Bieber onstage, with the 24-year-old gushing about how David had supported him through the early stages of his career.
“So this guy right here supported me from day one, came to my shows”, Bieber told the Los Angeles crowd.
“I’ve got so much love for him. He’s an amazing guy, but he’s an incredible artist and I’m just glad to be here. I had so much fun.”
Although it’s the first time that the pair have been seen together, the love-in was previously felt when Craig previously covered Bieber’s ‘Love Yourself’ for BBC’s Live Lounge in 2016.
In 2015 he also performed a new version of his single ‘Fill Me In’ set to Bieber and Jack Ü hit ‘Where Are Ü Now’.
