The singer made his musical comeback at the MTV Video Music Awards - and surprised the audience when he broke down in tears live on stage after performing his new single 'What Do You Mean?'
Now Justin has explained that the support he received was all a bit "overwhelming" for him, saying:
"It was just so overwhelming for me. Everything, the performance. I missed some cues so I was a little disappointed with that. Honestly, I just wasn't expecting them to support me in the way they did.
"Last time I was at an award show I was booed. I think it's just like, I worked so hard at this album, I worked so hard at becoming the man I want to become, and then stepping into these situations you can't help but feel judged.
"So I was just feeling judged and just wanting to win so badly and just wanting to do what I love so badly, so I just put everything on the line.
"And I think that's what was so special about the emotional moment at the end, it was authentic, it was real. I was just wanting it so bad."
Well that's heartwarming stuff isn't it? Justin also referenced his rebellious teenage past, saying: "I just had a bunch of knuckleheads around me, that was pretty much it.
"You have to figure out what you're ok with and what you're not ok with, but you have to test the waters. I just happened to be in the spotlight, in front of cameras all the time, and they caught all those moments."
