The Wanted’s Tom Parker later tweeted about their performance:

When it comes to music, Justin Bieber doesn’t play around.
The Biebs picked just some of today’s best new artists to join him in the pages of his Teen Vogue issue. Making the cut are The Wanted, Carly Rae Jepsen, Tori Kelly, Big Sean and new comer, Madison Bear.
The Wanted’s Max George told the magazine, “When we toured with Justin, it was an eye-opener to see how wild it could be—to think that we could be that big too.”
“We learned a lot from him,” added the group’s youngest member Nathan Sykes. “He knows how to put on a good show.”
