justin bieber gives emotional performance of "big girls don't cry"

lip sync it up

Justin Bieber used to be (and maybe still is) the kid everyone loved to hate—some have gone so far as to sign as a petition to have the Canadian native deported from the United States. But Bieber's been working to alter his "bad/annoying/[insert insult here] boy" image, and we have to admit, it's working.

If seeing the Biebs sing carpool karaoke with The Late Late Show host James Corden or watching his emotional video for the track "Where Are Ü Now" didn't charm you, maybe seeing him show off his sensitive side with a heartfelt rendition of Fergie's "Big Girls Don't Cry" will.

The singer dramatically mouthed the lyrics to the song as a part of the television show Lip Sync Battle, taking on—and ultimately losing to—athlete Deion Sanders. Regardless of who won the competition, we can't help but smile after watching his emotional, Fergie-filled performance.

Try not to fall in love with the video above, or combat your feelings by watching a much less-endearing performance of Bieber lip syncing Ozzy Osbourne's "Crazy Train," below.
