Justin Bieber messed up big time!
During The Biebs’ performance of his #1 hit “Despacito” at 1Oak in New York on Tuesday night (23rd May), he forgot the Spanish lyrics and sang “blah blah blah” instead.
Nope, we’re not kidding. He sang “blah blah blah” during the chorus. Listen for yourself:
And that’s not all.
During another chorus, the “Love Yourself” singer can be heard singing, “I don’t know the words so I say, ‘Poquito.’ I don’t know the words so I say, ‘Dorito.’ I don’t know the words so I say, ‘Poquito’.”
“Despacito” was originally released by Puerto Rican singers Luis Fonsi and Daddy Yankee in January and a remix version featuring Bieber was released digitally in April. The song also became the first mostly-Spanish-language song to lead the all-genre US Digital Songs chart.
A day prior to Bieber’s nightclub performance, Fonsi told ET Online that it was the Canadian singer’s idea to sing the song in Spanish.
Fonsi explained, “We had an English lyric for everything and he’s like, ‘No, no, no, no, I’m gonna do this in Spanish. He took the time to enunciate everything and to do it the right way. So, I think it’s a big win for Latin music and it’s awesome to have such a huge global star collaborate with us.”
Well, we think that Bieber can definitely do better than sing “blah blah blah”. We know learning and mastering a new language can be hard, but as an international artiste, it’s part of your job to prepare and practice before a performance, right?
