Justin Bieber concert: Malaika, Arbaaz arrive together with son Arhaan

Several newspapers reported that Bieber will avoid Mumbai's notoriously congested traffic by taking a helicopter from his hotel in the centre of the city to the concert venue.

Bollywood actor Arjun Rampal apparently lost his cool and "pushed" photographers who got close to his daughters Mahikaa and Myra on the red carpet of Justin Bieber's Mumbai concert.

It however, is unclear that if the kids were referring to Justin Bieber as Yo Yo Honey Singh or were requesting him to sing to the tunes of the Indian music sensation.

Ok so most (all?) "live" concerts are lip synced. Targeting the concert's organisers, she wrote, "Biebered out!"

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.

The U.S. decision to arm the YPG "will surely have consequences and will yield a negative result for the U.S.as well", Yildirim said.

The only songs that were performed live were I Won't Let You Go, Baby, What Do You Mean and Cold Water.

Dressed casually in a white t-shirt and black shorts, the 23-year-old Canadian singer made a stunning entry to the stage.

As appalling as Bieber's performance was, this is hardly the first time an global popstar of such stature has committed the crime of lip-syncing to his/her songs. He had the stage presence of khichdi. "(Lucky that my tickets were free:D)", AIB comic Ashish Shakya said on Twitter. Besides the galaxy of the young and the young at heart fans, Justin Bieber's magic did not even spare Bollywood.

The pop star has also become the first male artist to debut at number one in the US pop charts twice. As the much awaited Justin Bieber's concert takes place today, seems like the fun has started for the Mumbaikars.

Musicians that Firstpost spoke with, had mixed views on the lip-syncing issue, and whether or not it amounted to cheating the audiences, on the part of the performer (in this case, Bieber).
