It is not too late for Justin Bieber to sing "Sorry," or to do so amid simulated rain at the American Music Awards.
The 21-year-old singer from Stratford, Ont. continued his comeback tour at the AMAs, hours after Billboard announced he scored his sixth number one album with "Purpose," which sold 649,000 equivalent album units in its first week.

To close out the awards ceremony, Bieber performed a medley of his three most recent singles in front of an animated crowd that waved purple glow sticks around in unison.
Each rendition showed off a different side of the Juno winner's musical personality: "What Do You Mean?" was performed acoustic opposite his musical director and guitarist Dan Kanter, "Where Are Ü Now" included an EDM dance break, and "Sorry" was perhaps the most artistic act of them all — it was sung in the rain.
This is not the first Bieber performance to feature unexpected waterworks this year. Back in August, Bieber broke down on stage at the MTV Video Music Awards after he finished his first live television performance in nearly 2.5 years.
This time, he kept his emotions in check while wearing a beige hoodie, oversized white T-shirt and ripped jeans. Bieber also gave a shout-out to the crowd, saying "AMAs, what's up?" in between his songs.
Earlier in the night, Bieber took home his eighth career AMA for Collaboration of the Year for "Where Are Ü Now," which he shared with Skrillex and Diplo.
In the new year, Bieber will embark on a North American tour to promote his new album, and will hit several Canadian cities including Vancouver, Ottawa, Quebec City, Toronto and Edmonton.
