After a power outage affected instruments for his New York City concert on Monday night, Justin Bieber had one reaction: the show must go on.

The 18-year-old Canadian pop prince performed "Boyfriend," the first single from his new album Believe, despite the setback, directing the crowd of banshee-howling girls to sing along with him.

The outage happened at the end of the concert, shutting down stage instruments and some lights.

"Then we hear the fire alarm," Bieber's manager, Scooter Braun, told The Associated Press. "Literally, the boy blew up the Apollo — he heated up the Apollo."

Braun said Bieber began to "get frustrated, because it had been 40 minutes," so the singer -- who had briefly entertained the audience with a power-less drum solo and singalong to celebrate Braun's birthday, continued on with "Boyfriend."

Meanwhile, NBC was capturing footage for the concert special "Justin Bieber: All Around the World," scheduled to air on Thursday.
