Bieber, who was the last performer on the night, took to the stage right before Paul faced Askren in the main event. After three songs, he appeared to walk off the stage as though he finished.

The singer then remembered he had another song to perform and said, “Oh sh*t,” and ran back to perform. So although he put on a fantastic performance, he almost messed up the performances. Despite this, Bieber looked unflustered and put on a fantastic show even on the last song.

So here’s how Twitter reacted to his performance and his error.

Boxing fans who ridiculed the event due to the entertainment factor and the presence of celebrity boxers in crossover fights felt that Bieber’s gaffe was the best thing to emanate from the Mercedes Benz Arena in Atlanta. Some other fans felt that the Canadian musician attempted to stage a walkout of his own.
