Justin Bieber’s first ever concert in India was hugely received by his fans who turned up in hordes at Mumbai’s DY Patil Stadium. Most of them were spotted singing and dancing along every song on the play list, however, there were some who weren’t impressed with the 23-year-old’s performance at all. They not just called it a “low on energy” show, but also observed Bieber lip syncing to many of his songs, which was quite a turn off.

“It’s like he [Justin] is playing it straight from his CD. I cannot believe that he is pulling this off. It’s quite clear that he is not singing these songs,” said Amit sarkar, who had been waiting for his concert since February.

Amit wasn’t the only one who noticed Bieber’s lip syncing. Tina Joshi, another young fan present at the concert was disappointed that Bieber looked out of shape. “ May be it’s the heat and he is not used to it. It’s disappointing to see him perform like this. I expected him to sing LIVE, but he just sounds like his songs on my play list,” she said.

While some were disappointed that Bieber did not sing LIVE, some were heartbroken that their favourite pop singer did not sing some of his popular hits. “He did not sing I’m the one!!” retorted a fan, Anurag Dixit, when asked what was the low point of the concert. “It’s such a nice song and it’s my favourite. I don’t know why he didn’t sing it,” he added.

Bieber’s dance troupe was flawless as observed by the audience. “I think dancers [on stage] were the only saviours. Honestly, it was a bit underwhelming from him considering that it was his first show here [in India]. Although he has promised to come back, I am keeping my fingers crossed for the next time,” Siddharth Arora told us.
