At the end of his performance, Justin appeared to be overcome with emotion, remaining hunched over with his hands on his knees.
But in "Lonely", Bieber doesn't lionize fame - instead, the song paints a much more realistic image of what it means to be world famous as a teenager. He also brought out Chance the Rapper, who is featured on the single. After looking at his reflection in a mirror, he slowly got up and walked through the dimly lit halls of Studio 8H. During one skit, titled "Your Voice Chicago", Rae plays the role of a lead counselwoman for the N.A.A.C.P. who is discussing the upcoming elections on a talk show.
While singing, Justin started off backstage at SNL before making his way through the crowd and ended up singing on stage.
Justin debuted his newest tune, "Lonely", which he dropped on Friday, Oct. 16.
Back in September 2019, Bieber posted on social media about mental health, reflecting on the mistakes he had made in his past.
