Depicting a 14-year-old talented boy is like showing a starting point of Bieber’s way which has led him to Grammy Awards.
Saying a few words to each other in half dark before the music started was helpful for emphasizing the main idea of the whole song. Reminding the boy his words about the role of the fate I their destinies, Usher restates the main idea of the song Never Say Never. It makes their performance much more than one song because it also implies the young boy’s success story and destiny.
Thus, this introductory fragment was an important part of the whole performance which provided spectators with food for thought, motivating them not only to enjoy nut also to think over the lyrics of the song.
Beginning the song in half dark and turning the lights on a bit later, the performers intensified the impression produced upon the audience by adding dynamics to their performance.

Harmoniously combining the elements of hip hop, rap and country music in one composition, the authors allowed performers to demonstrate not only their talents but also the unlimited opportunities of these music styles.
