It’s official: Bieber is back, ready to hit the road and ready to bare his soul like so many other musicians after pandemic touring restrictions eased up earlier this year. His first order of business though: a new documentary, titled Justin Bieber: Our World, that’s now streaming exclusively on Amazon Prime.
The Amazon documentary takes a behind-the-scenes deep dive into Bieber’s creative challenges producing a concert amidst Covid health and safety protocols over the course of 30 days, leading up to his 2020 New Year’s Eve Show at the Beverly Hills Hotel in Los Angeles. This is not the first time Bieber has dipped his toes into the genre, most recently opening up in his 2020 YouTube docuseries Justin Bieber: Seasons and the follow-up film, The Next Chapter, where he spoke about his struggles with drug addiction.
Executive producer Michael D. Ratner, who also produced the two YouTube docuseries, returns to direct the Amazon Bieber doc, but those looking for a more up close and personal vibe will want to tune in for the vlog-style portions of the documentary Bieber filmed himself. From a lead choreographer testing positive for Covid-19 during rehearsals, to concert footage of JB performing for an outdoor (in-person!) crowd limited to just a couple hundred fans, the new Bieber documentary on Amazon is more than just a concert film.
The only way to watch Justin Bieber: Our World online is by streaming it on Amazon. If you want to watch the history behind Bieber’s first full concert in three years, here’s what you need to know.
