Then, as he came back down to earth, Bieber started sobbing visibly with his hands over his face.

Bieber last performed at the VMAs in 2010 and this years' show was seen as a comeback opportunity for the young singer, whose last few years have been somewhat tumultuous.

His troubles aren't officially over: he was pulled over for speeding on Saturday night.

He was caught going over the 25 mile-per-hour speed limit in Beverly Hills, California, and was promptly stopped by police officers, TMZ reports.

Justin was driving in his brand new Ferrari when he was stopped by cops, however, the scene turned even more dramatic as another three squad cars also turned up at the scene.

The 21-year-old singer was given a speeding ticket and let go by officers.
