Justin Bieber and DJ Snake are set to rock their worldwide hit “Let Me Love You” via satellite from Switzerland at the American Music Awards this Sunday.
But if you can’t wait, you’re in luck. The Canadian superstar and the French superproduer-DJ wowed a crowd of thousands with their first ever live performance of their banger at the Biebs’ Purpose World Tour show in Zurich on Thursday night.
Justin and DJ Snake surprised a rapturous audience at the Hallenstadion stadium with their global dance jam.
Eagle-eyed fans spotted a drone filming the concert, which produced some stunning shots of the pop prince’s hits-laden, visually-sumptuous spectacular.
“Let Me Love You” hit No. 5 on Billboard and is currently No.1 at pop radio. DJ Snake recently tweeted that a music video for the song is on the way, and it’s rumored a visual could drop after the AMAs show airs.
Hints that DJ Snake would make an appearance at Bieber’s show started percolating when the DJ posted a clip on snapchat of “Let Me Love You” from the singer’s soundcheck.
The “Middle” maestro tweeted posts after Bieber’s concert. Tagging the 22-year-old singer, the EDM producer wrote, “First time performing ‘Let me Love You’ an Unforgettable Moment @justinbieber.”
The DJ continued, “From Paris to Canada. From an idea to stadium speakers. Moments you won’t forget. @justinbieber.”

Will Bieber’s American Music Awards performance be a medley of “Let Me Love You” and another song? Perhaps “Love Yourself?” The song, a collaboration between the Biebs and Brit Ed Sheeran, appears on Justin’s acclaimed, multi-million selling latest album, Purpose.
The “Sorry” singer was announced as a performer at the AMAs on Wednesday. The Biebs is nominated for awards in five categories. Favorite Male artist, Artist of the Year, Purpose for pop/rock Album of the year, “Love Yourself” as Song of the Year in the same slot, and “Sorry” for video of the year.
Bieber is a 15-time AMA nominee and an eight-time winner, and is competing with some of the most successful names in the music business in each of his noms.
Other previously announced performers include Lady Gaga, Bruno Mars, Shawn Mendes, Niall Horan, Maroon 5, Kendrick Lamar, James Bay, Fifth Harmony, Green Day, John Legend, Twenty One Pilots, The Weeknd, Halsey and The Chainsmokers, Ariana Grande with Nicki Minaj, and the American Music Award of Merit honoree and veteran performer Sting.
Jay Pharoah and uber-model Gigi Hadid will co-host the fan-voted awards concert, which will broadcast live from the Microsoft Theater in Los Angeles at 8 p.m. Sunday, November 20, on ABC.
The Biebs recently made headlines when he cried happy tears at his well-received show in Germany earlier this week while singing the title track from Purpose.
Footage of the moment revealed Justin getting emotional during the reflective song, which is about the journey from finding personal purpose through faith in God in tough times. Some fans who went to the Frankfurt show later tweeted that he was also moved by fans’ supportive signs at the concert.
Based on the “Let Me Love You” performance snippets, Bieber’s AMAs spot should be one to remember.
