Rising band Rixton was joined by Justin Bieber onstage at SXSW earlier this month and they were just as surprised as the rest of the crowd when the “Boyfriend” singer appeared.
The UK band, which is signed to Scooter Braun‘s Schoolboy Records Label, were performing in Austin, Texas at Scooter Braun Project’s “Sunday Funday Showcase” when a familiar face joined them during their cover of “Suit & Tie.”
The boys, who are set to drop their music video for “Me and My Broken Heart” on Wednesday, revealed to On Air with Ryan Seacrest that when they heard “Justin” was coming out, they originally thought Justin Timberlake!
“We were very surprised. We were actually singing ‘Suit & Tie’ at the time … but we were just as surprised to see Justin Bieber. It was the most insane thing ever.”
Catch the boys’ brand new music video for “Me and My Broken Heart” later today, and download their EP on iTunes here!
