Justin Bieber Forgets His Spanish Lyrics While Singing ‘Despacito’


Justin Bieber has proved the limits of his apparent talents live on stage in an embarrassing display of ignorance.

The Canadian pop-star forgot the lyrics to the song Despacito, falling at pretty much the first hurdle in the race to being a half-decent performing artist.

Justin Bieber features in the track, which has topped charts and made history as the first mostly-Spanish song to reach number one in 20 years.


It should be a momentous occasion, long overdue, and a huge win for Spanish language music and performing artists.

But, along comes Bieber, the featured guest featured guest on Despacito, a remix of Luis Fonsi and Daddy Yankee’s classic, to ruin it for everybody as he performed live on Tuesday night at 1 OAK in New York.

You can watch the moment Justin fluffs his words in the clip, courtesy of TMZ, below:

Feel free to judge the moment Bieber replaces the Spanish lyrics with: “Blah blah blah…”

At least we can all take solace in the fact that it’s actually the most profound the billionaire has been in some time – it’s just a shame the rarity happens to coincide with causing offence to an entire culture.

Bravo, Bieber… Bravo.
