NEWARK, N.J. -- For all the negative publicity that's surrounded Justin Bieber in recent months -- the alleged drinking, smoking, spitting, fighting with a paparazzo and more -- he entered the stage at the Prudential Center in angelic form: In all white, he descended to the centre of the stage with wings on his sides as nearly 20,000 fans screamed at the top of their lungs.
These girls had Bieber Fever, and they didn't want to be cured.
They cheered on the 19-year-old, who kicked off his Wednesday night concert with the high energy, electro-flavoured songs "All Around the World" and "Take You." There were pyrotechnics bursting to match the tracks' sparkle, fan-made signs in every row and lights beaming from the cellphones capturing pictures and video. Bieber didn't have to move, and the arena would still have been in a frenzy.
