Justin Bieber stopped for a chat and some hugs with a Celbride fan after his sold-out RDS gig.

The global superstar appeared in good spirits the morning after Wednesday's concert.

As he walked towards his car in Celbridge today, the singer was approached by local fan, Mark Smith.

The pair embraced and Justin kept his arm around Mark as they walked towards their car, stopping for more hugs before the Sorry singer drove off.

Mark is performing in Celbridge GAA Club's lip sync battle this weekend so perhaps he was looking for some tips from Justin.

According to the GAA club, Mark is a member of Run of the Mill theatre and played the lead role of King Lear in the Draoicht last September.

He's a bit of a celebrity in Celbridge and often entertains locals with impromptu performances at the bus stop.

The Tesco worker is also known to perform for shoppers by singing songs from the Les Miserables soundtrack.

He also guests lectures for Maynooth University on their inclusive learning initiative.

Maybe Justin was the one looking for tips from Mark as he continues to tour the globe with his Purpose world tour.

He delighted fans on Wednesday with an upbeat performance in the RDS, telling fans that Ireland is one of his "favourite places".

"This is one of my favourite places to be in the whole wide world. I'm so happy to be back here," he told the screaming crowds.

On Monday, he was spotted dining in a Maynooth eatery and playing basketball in Bushy Park in South Dublin.
