With Bieber, it includes working very closely with a big team, including choreographers and wardrobe and lighting.

The only meal I can really go out for is breakfast, so I usually go to a famous breakfast spot. It just gets me in the zone. We do 30 minutes of vocal warm-ups before the show. We do a pre-show prayer with everybody, go on stage and take it from there.
