Justin Bieber wants his ‘Believe’ tour to be one of the biggest tours ever held and to up the ante, the singer has enlisted the help of his ‘Never Say Never’ director Jon M. Chu for a special contest where dancers from all around the world can submit videos and have the chance win the role as a dancer on the upcoming tour.
Aspiring dancers can submit their videos by August 17th and JB’s team has already begun physical auditions with more than 1,000 potentials. Not only is Jon M. Chu in charge of the auditions but he is also the director of the ‘Believe’ tour so he knows just what to look for.
He advised those interested in auditioning to be themselves in the videos and has asked to keep in mind that it isn’t necessarily a contest but simply making use of the resources available to them to find new talent and make the ‘Believe’ tour the biggest thing yet. “We are creating a huge, crazy show. We want to make you proud and make you believe in magic,” said Chu.
Meanwhile, Scooter Braun has revealed that the Biebs will be channeling Michael Jackson on a whole different level. Braun said, “He has been watching a tremendous amount of Michael Jackson concerts from the ’80s and ’90s. And he has been talking to me about how Michael incorporated magic and pyro and reveals and he wants to bring in that. [But] still do that acoustic thing, but he wants to take it to a whole new level.”
“Nothing makes him happier than being onstage,” Braun added. “So it’s gonna be fun to get back onto the road. I think he was an amazing performer before, but his level of dance and musicianship and his range [has grown]. He’s a veteran now. I think he wants to take it to a completely new level.”
Justin Bieber’s ‘Believe’ Tour kicks off on September 29th.
