Justin Bieber and Cody Simpson were hanging out again last night, although this time there were no pesky Shapchat videos to stir up any controversy. Justin and Cody spent the night pumping up attendees at the opening ceremonies for the 2015 Special Olympics World Games held at the Los Angeles Coliseum. First Lady Michelle Obama officially opened the event, which will see more than 6,500 athletes and 2,000 coaches from 165 countries participate in front of an estimated 500,000 spectators over the course of the World Games’ 7 days of competition, according to the LA2015.org website.
Justin spent quality time with members of the Canadian national delegation and met with event participants and their families throughout the night. Cody Simpson performed a song live with members of the band O.A.R., having collaborated on a track sponsored by Coca Cola before the event to raise funds for participating athletes.
Justin and Cody also spent time with other celebrities at the event doing live spots for television stations around the world, among them event coordinator Maria Shriver and presenter Maria Menounos, who was acting as one of the event’s television hosts.
We have a short clip of Justin firing up Team Canada below.
