Justin Bieber was allegedly caught lip syncing during his headlining performance at V Festival in England on Saturday night, and his fans weren’t happy.

He told fans he was feeling slightly hungover after partying with Rihanna the night before at Tape nightclub in London.

“I’m having the best night, although I’m a little hungover,” he confessed to the crowd.

Fans took to Twitter to vent their frustration at his sloppy performance!

One fan wrote: “Loved #VFestival, but #JustinBieber was the worst performer I’ve ever seen live- miming 95% & terribly. Lazy, disappointing & insulting.”

Another commented: “I think @vfestival forgot to turn @justinbieber’s mic on tonight… P**s poor live set from bieber.”

A review in The Telegraph also blasted JB following his performance.

“The man who sold out Madison Square Garden aged 18 was lackadaisical and distant here. His most verbose moment during the turgid 90-minute set saw him listing the different fast food vans he could see around the festival site, as people heckled him,” they wrote.

“At times it was difficult to establish whether Bieber was actually singing; he spent a lot of time with his back to the crowd and the volume of his featherlight vocals didn’t change regardless of the increasing distance between his mouth and the microphone.

“But mostly it was clear that he wasn’t: he held the mic down by his side, mouthing the lyrics as he stared blankly at the crowd.”

Yikes, harsh!

Biebs was already in the bad books with fans, after he deleted his Instagram account last week because of a spat with exes Selena Gomez and Hailey Baldwin.

Ignoring the hate about his lip syncing, Justin took to Twitter after the performance to let fans know how much he enjoyed playing for them.

“Thank you v fest. Night one was real,” he tweeted along with a photo of the crowd.

Awks!
