Justin Bieber has been living on earth for 22 years today, and he hasn’t wasted a minute of it.
The Purpose singer’s 22nd birthday also marks six years since “Baby” cracked the top 10 on the Billboard Hot 100. It’s almost like nothing has changed; this week, Justin’s still up at No. 2 on the charts with “Love Yourself.”
He’s had an impressive run of hit singles, but maybe the most incredible thing about Justin is how he’s reached out to his fans time and time again. Whether he’s surprising Beliebers with tickets to his shows or helping out families in need, he doesn’t ever really seem to stop giving back.
In honor of Justin’s big 22, here are 22 times he blew away fans who were never expecting to meet him in person.
This Kimmel clip is the origin story of Justin Bieber: Superhero. His three-year-old mega-fan couldn’t stop crying about how much she loved him — until she actually met him.
After their dad was deployed to Iraq before he could take them to a Bieber concert, the Simon sisters got the best surprise: a limo ride from Justin to their very own concert. He even took them out for ice cream before the show.
Justin surprised a teen superfan at her own house with the help of her awesome mom.
Three young fans thought they were trying out the dancing game Just Dance 4. They were in for a whole lot more.
There’s no way these kids don’t love math now.
No one has ever screamed like these true Beliebers screamed when he showed up out of nowhere.
Kate’s fans started a campaign for her to meet Justin after she survived a serious car accident — and Justin was happy to oblige.
Justin directed this young model in a ProActiv ad — and when she found out it was him, she flipped.
Emma, 11, and Ilia, 16, learned that they inspire the person who inspires them the most, too.
On his 18th birthday, Justin met an unsuspecting superfan who had traveled to the set of The Ellen Show in a very unusual way.
Lisa and her 17-year-old daughter Brittany had drifted apart — until they bonded over their love for Bieber, who met them on The Rosie Show.
Kilee had survived third-degree burns on 20% of her body, and Justin just had to let her know how proud he was of her.
He pretended to stumble in on the “wrong room,” only to meet his biggest fans ever.
Noah was born with Down syndrome and other health problems, so Justin pitched in (and rapped with him and his dad!).
High fives, hugs, and kisses were all exchanged at this special meet-up.
You never know whose ride you’ll be sharing.
