Justin Bieber performed a pair of singles at the 2016 Billboard Music Awards.

Was it just us, however, or did the beloved solo artist not look all that into his renditions of "Sorry" and "Company?"

The former track is Bieber’s second single off latest album, "Purpose," which came out last November.

It shot to number-one on the Billboard Hot 100.

The latter, meanwhile, is the album’s fourth single and has thus far peaked at number- 53 on the Billboard chart. Not exactly as impressive.

After being introduced at Sunday night’s event by DJ Khaled, Bieber came out on stage in a white T-shirt and ripped jeans.

He opened his performance behind a screen with plenty of of smoke and lights partially obscuring the 22-year old… until the partition lifted and Bieber – new buzzcut and all! – and his backup dancers came out toward the crowd.

From there, viewers were treated to a “Sorry” rendition that included lasers and special effects, as Bieber let the backtrack play and only jumped in for certain sections of the song.

It was pretty strange.

Immediately following his performance, Bieber – who has been on an religion mission of late, accepted the award for Top Male Artist and gave a short acceptance speech thanking God, his family and his fans.

"’I’m not really a talker, but I’ll say thank you to my family," he said, adding:

I want to thank God. I want to thank everyone that believed in me and believes in me."

You can’t really argue with any of those sentiments, we suppose.

But Bieber’s behavior these days and his performance at this show do leave us a bit concerned. Is he okay? Is he suffering some kind of meltdown?

Or is this much ado over nothing?
