Justin Bieber says sorry for his “nervous” Live Lounge performance

Some fans called the singer's interview segments "awkward" and "cringey"

Justin Bieber has apologised to fans who felt elements of his recent Live Lounge performance were a disappointment.

The singer performed stripped down versions of four of his hits – ‘What Do You Mean?’, ‘Love Yourself’, Major Lazer collaboration ‘Cold Water’ and DJ Snake hook-up ‘Let Me Love You’ – plus covers of Tracy Chapman’s ‘Fast Car’ and Tupac’s ‘Thugz Mansion’ in a special set yesterday (September 1) to kick off Radio 1’s Live Lounge Month.

During the session, some fans wrote on Twitter that his interview segments with hosts Clara Amfo and Nick Grimshaw were “cringey” and “awkward”.
