Justin Bieber Metaverse Concert: I was itching to write a nasty review of Justin Bieber’s Thursday night online show. The musician performed in several computer-generated settings while wearing a mocap suit that converted his movements to an avatar, singing and dancing to some of his songs to the accompaniment of a virtual audience that seemed like it was taken straight out of The Sims.
A webcast of the performance lasted for around half an hour.
I was shocked to find that I didn’t actively dislike it when it was ended. It’s very unlikely that I did. You can’t really know for sure.
This is due to the obscurity of determining how much of the event was a sham. Is Justin just lip-syncing to a recording, or is he truly singing? (His voice was eerily clear, and he never seemed to need a breather.)
Was this a live recording, or did he really move like that? As the show progressed, chat bubbles supposedly from viewers emerged; however, it was unclear whether or not these comments were real or had been scripted in advance by
Maybe none of that matters; I can enjoy a magic performance even if I don’t understand how the magician sawed the woman in two. That was a great concert, by the way.
The crowd applauded enthusiastically. And maybe soon, even if the epidemic ends and huge in-person concerts are once again safe to attend, this will be the predominant way we consume “live” music.
I haven’t seen this degree of excitement from the tech industry since 1999, when they first found candy-colored plastic shells on electrical consumer gadgets, and it all started with the announcement from Facebook/Meta.
The metaverse is a limitless abstraction whose meaning varies from person to person, so be wary of anybody offering you a piece of it.
Marketing for the Bieber event, which was put on by a firm called Wave and made possible via technology created by another business named Maestro, was handled with great care. The phrase “metaverse” used just once, yet it was advertised as a “virtual” experience. Pre-show emcee Seena used it to pump up the crowd: “Justin has to get warmed up before he tackles the metaverse.
Sentences like those make one wonder, what precisely are we talking about here? How did you get warmed up? Will he enter a TRON machine? Despite Seena’s best efforts, it is difficult to prepare for the experience of a virtual pop star performance since it is so novel and constantly growing.
(Ariana Grande’s recent Fortnite performance, which was essentially a virtual playable roller coaster synced to music, was especially mind-bending.) After all the hype, I was prepared for a livestream of a poor computer-generated music video. You’re right; I was incorrect.
Wave deserves credit for making a game that’s at least passably fun. The show was a video livestream, with viewers looking in via a window without the ability to move the camera or take control of an avatar. A rapid-fire dialogue and a few chances to push buttons were included.
One overlay stated, “CLICK TO SHOW JUSTIN SOME LOVE,” and viewers may choose one of three heart symbols to “poke.” By drifting into the concert scene like flames from a bygone era, the hearts gave the sense that the crowd was actively participating in the show.
But could it be said that they were really communicating with one another? Despite my best efforts, I was never rewarded with a virtual heart displaying my user name.
Send Justin Your Light was a brilliant marketing play. To go to the next part of the performance, a health bar would emerge on the left side of the screen and spectators would be prompted to repeatedly press buttons until it was full.

Not even close; it would be insane to gamble the show on such a gimmicky gauge of fan interest. But even during a classic live event, the artists aren’t asking “how you doin’, Cleveland?” out of genuine curiosity. The simple act of cheering can be enjoyable on its own.
Justin Bieber’s Metaverse Konseri
It’s important to note that Justin Bieber has not announced any plans for a “metaverse concert” at this time, and there is no official information available about any upcoming events of this nature.
A metaverse concert is a concept that refers to a virtual concert that is held within a virtual world, such as a video game or a virtual reality platform.
This kind of concert allows for an immersive experience for the audience and offers new possibilities for artists to perform and interact with their fans in a new way. However, as of now, it’s uncertain if Justin Bieber or his team are working on such a project and it’s purely speculative.
It’s definitely a first to see your favourite artist dancing about in a virtual setting. Yet I am curious as to how long the first excitement will persist.
