Tonight at the 2012 Billboard Music Awards Justin Bieber graced the stage looking adorable as always to perform his latest single ‘Boyfriend.’

He gave a high energy performance that included some black light special effects, and of course – great dancing. Between his sweet moves and the fact he was donning two white gloves — we couldn’t help to think he was channeling a little bit of Michael Jackson!

While we certainly aren’t complaining, it did appear that Bieber switched between lip-syncing the chorus and hook, and also singing live. We don’t blame him – we’re sure those high notes don’t come as easy as they did before he went through puberty.

No one seemed to mind and it didn’t compromise the performance — especially the girls in the front row who were lucky enough to receive high fives and handshakes from the singer during his performance. A solid performance from Bieber, who has has won seven Billboard Music Awards in past years and received one tonight for Top Social Artist.
