Justin Bieber couldn't be back in the United States for the 2016 American Music Awards, but the pop superstar didn’t have to say “Sorry.” Instead, the 22-year-old televised his performance of “Let Me Love You” during his Zurich, Switzerland concert.

Bieber rocked the stage singing his hit single as his diehard fans openly wept in the audience. The singer sported a black shirt and brown khakis as he delivered an energetic performance.

Bieber is currently in the middle of his Purpose World Tour and has most recently been traveling through Europe.

His ex-girlfriend, Selena Gomez, attended the AMAs in her first public appearance since she announced that she was taking time off in August to deal with her anxiety, depression, and panic attacks caused by lupus.  The "Hands to Myself" singer couldn't have looked happier or healthier in a fiery red, sleeveless Prada gown.

This year's AMAs were hosted by Gigi Hadid and Jay Pharoah. In addition to the Biebs' performance, the awards show also featured live entertainment from Bruno Mars, John Legend, Ariana Grande, and Lady Gaga.

Though his performance went off without a hitch, Bieber has recently made headlines for his concert antics. During multiple shows in England, the Canadian pop star asked his roaring crowd to stop screaming so he could talk. In one show, he actually exited the arena after the yelling didn't end.

Bieber has been struggling all year with his diehard fans. In August, he deleted his Instagram account after telling his followers to leave his then-girlfriend, Sofia Richie, alone.
