The singer has just launched a campaign where fans can upload videos of themselves dancing. One lucky dancer will score a coveted audition spot with Bieber to try and snag a dancer position on his Believe tour.
Bieber, with the help of his "Never Say Never" helmer and his tour director, Jon M. Chu, will be scouring Chu's D-Studio to find the next great dancing talent. The campaign launched Friday (August 3), while in-person dance auditions kicked off earlier this week in L.A.
"Justin also has such a huge online component, that's where he was discovered," Chu told E! News. "You can upload your own video and audition."
"We're only looking for the best dancers in the world. I know you and I, we want to take it to a whole other level," choreographer Nick DeMoura added in a video posted with Chu on D-Studio about the tour. "It's gonna be like an epic journey."
The guys are looking for dancers of all styles. Chu added that Bieber and the team have a certain goal for the tour, "We're gonna make you believe in magic." Submissions must be in by August 17. The tour kicks off September 29 in Glendale, Az. Carly Rae Jepsen will open for the singer.
If dancers are looking for some inspiration, manager Scooter Braun has noted that the King of Pop has been influencing the VMA-nominated Bieber as of late.
Not only does Michael Jackson inspire the "As Long As You Love Me" video, but he also inspires the trek, kicking off this fall.
"He has been watching a tremendous amount of Michael Jackson concerts from the '80s and '90s," Braun shared. "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.
"It's just really exciting," he continued. "Nothing makes him happier than being onstage. 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."
