Justin Bieber crashes idol Craig David's Los Angeles performance to show the R&B singer some love
Justin Bieber crashed the stage toward the end of a Craig David concert and revealed how much he idolized the singer.
Justin Bieber crashed the stage towards the end of a Craig David concert at The Roxy in West Hollywood, California to express his love for the R&B singer, claiming that David supported his career right from the beginning and even attended his shows, revealing that the singer was one of his idols. Bieber has been on a break from on-and-off girlfriend Selena Gomez, and he was spotted at the concert with a mysterious date.
Bieber, 24, reportedly hugged David, 36, before talking to the audience. He couldn't stop gushing about the '7 Days' singer, telling the crowd, "So this guy right here supported me from day one, came to my show in London... I've got so much love for him - I look up to him."
Bieber continued, "He's an amazing guy, but he's an incredible artist. I'm just glad to be here. I've had so much fun," and then he gave David a sincere look filled with admiration before hugging the singer one more time and walking off stage, back into the crowd.
David, too, looked visibly moved as he continued, and after the show, the 'I Know You' singer posted footage of Bieber's tribute to him to Twitter, thanking Los Angeles for their energy and giving Bieber a special mention, expressing his gratitude for the love and kindness he had shown him.

David has also expressed support for Bieber in the past, covering 'Love Yourself' in 2016 for the BBC Radio 1 Live Lounge sessions. Before the concert, David said, "'I've watched Justin grow into the young man that he is now and it's incredible to see him be able to own it in the way that he is."
He was full of praise for Bieber's ability to have popular appeal despite his struggles with celebrity. "Because I think a lot of us try to understand how someone could actually be in the spotlight like he's been and be able to hold it together, and come with the music and still keep it relevant and keep it fresh."
