On Tuesday 27th April 2010, my dream came true.
I MET JUSTIN BIEBER!!
My hero, my rolemodel, my love, my life
Check out my post ‘The Future Radio Star’, to find out how I won the competition with Hot 30 Countdown.
On Tuesday morning, when the alarm went off, nothing was going to stop me from getting out of bed.
My bad stomach cramps from the night before meant nothing to me, when all that was going through my head was that I’m about to meet my idol, and going to live my dream for the day.
All the pain I had, was sore stomach muscles from throwing up in the hospital.
I still got through the pain though.
My mum and I took a taxi to the 2Day FM studio. We put in our forms and the receptionist told us to wait down near the cafe on the ground floor.
Later arrived some more contest winners. I became good friends with some of them.
We were directed back upstairs to the 2Day FM studio, where they made us wait in a meeting room. We all talked about Justin in all different ways, while we were waiting and getting our names marked off.
There was approximately 5 contest winners from New South Wales and 5 contest winners from the other states in Australia.
We were later informed that there was some good news and some bad news.
All I was thinking was, how bad was the bad news.
They said the good news is that you will be able to still meet Justin but the bad news is, that Justin is sick.
Hot 30 paid for the flights and accomadation for the winners from other states. They pushed back their flights, so we could all meet up later in the day, so Justin had the opportunity to get better and see a doctor.
They checked all our phone numbers, so they could text and call us with the information about where we were going to meet and at what time.
My mum and I went back to our hotel to wait for the texts and calls.
They texted us twice about where we might be meeting up, which ending up being the right address anyway.
They called us at about 12:15pm, with all the details, to meet up at the Fraiser Suites at 12:30pm. We immediately left the hotel room and got in a taxi, to try to arrive at 12:30. We did arrive on time, because we weren’t that far away.
We waited for everyone to arrive, and then we all piled into 3 mega taxis/cars, that they organised for us, to take us to Justin’s hotel.
They made us wait in a meeting room/lobby area. They told us to be quite, as we didn’t want to attract too much attention to the room.
We were originally allowed to take our own photos and videos of the event.
They came in every now and then. Once to say that he will be only about 20 minutes or so.
The last time was to tell us that they are going to take us up to Justin, instead of him coming down to us.
We took the staircase, so the people staying in the hotel wouldn’t know. We were then told that we weren’t allowed to take our own photos and videos. Instead there was a professional photographer there to take our photos (They later emailed all the photos to each of us).
While waiting in the line, with the person we came with (I came with my mum), I was getting nervous, but excited even more. I was only on the other side of the wall, of the room that Justin was in. I then realised, Justin is only on the other side of that wall. I’m SO close! I have made my dream come true, by not giving up.
When the girls infront of us got their turn, I moved up in the line. I caught a glimpse of Justin and I immediately fell in love. My mum said “I can’t see him”, while she was trying to catch a glimpse. I just stood there, staring at Justin, and said “I can”, in my in-love voice.
It was then my turn to go see Justin.
I got a hug. The BEST hug in the world. The BEST hug I have ever gotten. I got a photo taken with him.
I bought Justin a couple of presents on Sunday afternoon and put them in a gift bag. You should of seen his face when I handed it to him. It was priceless. He thought I was such a sweetheart. I was the only girl there that gave him a present.
He loved it.
We were only allowed to get one thing signed. He signed my CD, and my mum got my poster signed.
When I told him that I was going to give away the CD he signed to a lucky fan on my website, he thought I was even nicer than he thought.
When he signed my poster, I got a heart on it, as well as the autograph.
Enter my competition, to WIN the signed Justin Bieber ‘My World 2.0’ CD.
Check out my post ‘Win a Signed Copy of Justin Bieber’s ‘My World 2.0′ CD’ to find out the details.
The duration of the whole meet and greet was supposed to be an hour, including the intimate performance, but because Justin was sick and trying to get better, to head off to New Zealand that night, the duration was only about 20 minutes maximum.
But, I am still truely grateful. It was better than nothing. And I still got to meet him.
I always remember that a lot fans would kill to have done what I did.
It was an experience that I will NEVER forget, especially when it was my dream and goal to achieve, and it happened.
And even though Justin was sick and couldn’t perform for us, I am still eternally grateful/thankful that it happened to ME! 🙂
Justin, when I met him, was such a sweetheart. He is seriously, the NICEST person I have EVER met!
He was a thousand, NO! A GOOGLE times cuter in person.
And, in photos and videos, his hair always looks really dark, when actually it is like my colour. A dark blonde. You can see that, in the photo of us.
I was really nervous that he’d be much shorter than me, but actually he was a bit taller than me (as you can see in the photo). Whoever says he is SOO short. They are completely wrong. He is just at the right height.
And whoever said shorter guys can’t get the girls, they are SOO wrong too.
That was the BEST experience I have EVER had.
Now! I have met other celebrities, but the experiences weren’t as good as that one was.
Thanks Justin for making it SOOOO memorable.
Thank You everyone from the Hot 30, who made it all happen. And Thank You GOD, and my mother, who was there every step of the way to help make it happen. LOVE YOU MUM!! <3
