Justin Bieber On Thursday's 'Ellen' To Explain Nerves

Justin Bieber On Thursday’s ‘Ellen’: Nerves, Making Amends, Meeting ‘Scandal’s’ Scott Foley

Justin Bieber will appear on Thursday’s editions of The Ellen DeGeneres Show and The Doctors.

According to tweets posted by some audience members at the Wednesday taping of Ellen, Bieber talked about his nerves when he was last on the show to celebrate the host’s 57th birthday.

Hours after, the singer posted a message to his Fahlo social media account telling fans he had been on Ellen and asked them to watch the next day. He also tweeted a message.

In addition to acknowledging his anxiety on the January 29 show, guests claimed Bieber admitted that he had done questionable and/or stupid things during over the last two years and now wants to make amends.

Apparently he didn’t mention his upcoming new album or love life.

It’s also said the singer joined in the dancing segment on the show. So it sounds like he is getting the hang of TV land again.

If Bieber was more relaxed during his latest turn on Ellen, that might well have been down to Pastor Carl Lentz of the Hillsong NYC Church accompanying him to the taping.

Since last October, Lentz — a longtime friend of the singer — has reportedly stepped up his guidance.

Lentz’s wife, Laura, posted a fun Instagram pic of Carl and Justin meeting Scandal’s Scott Foley, another guest. Music on Ellen was provided by Irish singer-songwriter, Hozier.

As widely reported, hours after Justin’s appearance on Ellen last Wednesday he posted a soul-searching video to his social video accounts. In the clip, he declares, “I’m not who I was pretending to be,” among other admissions.

Fans of the singer pushed the hashtag “WeDontJudgeYouJustin” to the top trend quickly after the video dropped online. According to social media data measured by analytics firm Brandwatch, “Bieber’s confessional video generated 10 times more positive mentions than negative.”

On Thursday, Justin also appears on a pre-taped spot on the medical show The Doctors at the request of 16-year-old Kilee Brookbank, who suffered burns over 45 percent of her body in a home explosion last November.

The 20-year-old superstar’s small screen double whammy tomorrow is the latest step in his return to the spotlight after more than a year of legal woes, incidents and media focus.

Some cynics have dubbed it an insincere apology tour. Others agree that although it is a coordinated drive, it’s appropriate, authentic and necessary before Bieber and a — mostly — still baying public can move on.
