justin bieber billboard music awards 2013 Justin Bieber performs 'Take You' At Billboard Music Awards 2013

All aboard Bieber Air. Justin Bieber took to the 2013 Billboard Music Awards stage to perform his single “Take You” off of his 2012 album “Believe” using an airport-inspired set.

Beyond performing, Bieber had been noticeable absent at the awards show. That all changed when he made his performance very known while singing “Take You.” Considering Bieber’s various issues in airports recently, it was an interesting choice to have the performance set in that location.

Bieber clearly seems to have been taking advantage of his time off from Selena Gomez and wanted to show it. The leather jacket the pop star wore had one arm ripped entirely off to show off his muscular arms. Bieber completed the leather ensemble with a pair of black leather harem pants, his new fashion staple.

Earlier in the night, Bieber’s ex Gomez also performed at the 2013 Billboard Music Awards. Fans hoping for a run-in between the on-again, off-again pair were out of luck, as Gomez made sure she was one of the first stars to walk the show’s red carpet.
