Justin Bieber was one of the many famous faces who attended Michael Jackson's handprint ceremony in Hollywood today, and not only did he receive a warm reception from the crowd, but Michael's daughter Paris seemed very excited to introduce him. Selena Gomez better watch her back!
Paris compared the 17-year-old to her late father, noting that he "found stardom at a very young age" and she added that MJ would have loved to mentor someone like the Biebs. When it was time to bring Justin onstage, Paris gushed, "We are all very big fans of [Justin] and his music ... I know I am."
Justin told the crowd that MJ was an "inspiration," and he then performed "Rockin' Robin," a tune which the King of Pop famously covered on his first solo album.
Is it just us, or is he looking a bit more grown up now?
