Not that JB is anything to sniff at, but Becky's performance was even more special than that. "A whole year before that, I went to my very first Justin Bieber concert. It was my first concert ever, actually. Jokingly, my dad was like, we don’t need passes because next year you’ll be on stage. As a joke, of course!" she laughs. "And then literally a year later I’m opening for Justin with my boy Cody Simpson, singing a song I wrote called 'Wish You Were Here.' It was insane. I will never forget it." What an awesome memory!
