KUALA LUMPUR: With so many screaming fans in Malaysia, it's hard to see why Justin Bieber still sings about needing “somebody to love”.
The 17-year-old pop sensation performed in front of a sell-out 17,000-crowd at Stadium Merdeka last night, and to say he was given a warm reception would be an understatement.
His Beliebers (what Bieber fans fondly refer to themselves as) were screaming and chanting in the pouring rain for almost two hours.
They were in near hysteria when he finally appeared on stage in his trademark white and purple get-up.
The fans kept it up for nearly the entire show as Bieber performed songs like Somebody To Love, One Time and Never Say Never, saving his signature hit Baby for last.
As part of his usual routine, a girl from the audience was brought on stage to be serenaded by Bieber as he performed One Less Lonely Girl.
Bieber had performed to a sold-out show in Singapore on Tuesday night and will now travel for shows in Indonesia and Australia as part of his My World Tour concert series.
Earlier, at the KL International Airport, Beliebers Felicia Priyanka, 13, and Joanna Joseph, 14, could not contain their excitement as they waited for the teenage sensation to arrive.
The girls, with painted faces held up banners that read “Marry us! You're One In A Million!” and joined the crowd which erupted in screams when Bieber arrived yesterday.

However, the girls' excitement was dampened when they saw him emerge from the VIP Lounge with girlfriend Selena Gomez.
“Why is she here? It is his tour, not hers,” complained Felicia, adding that she was “extremely jealous” of the singer-actress.
Despite being irritated about the star bringing Gomez on tour, the girls were still overjoyed to catch a glimpse of the YouTube sensation before the concert.
The lovebirds were heavily guarded by security personnel, who formed a human barricade around them before they were whisked to a waiting car.
