EXCLUSIVE: Rudy Mancuso's Purpose World Tour Diary -- Pics Inside

Rudy Mancuso put his entire life on the stage when he performed in front of 50,000 people in his home country.

In a dream come true, Rudy opened for Justin Bieber‘s Purpose World Tour in Brazil.

The multi-talented performer had been preparing for months for the shows. And it totally paid off!

Rudy won over the hearts of the Brazilian crowd, leaving him feeling unimaginably happy.

“Opening for Justin in Brazil was more than exhilarating,” Rudy exclusively tells JustJaredJr. “It’s hard to comprehend the idea of playing for fifty thousand people in a stadium. It’s more than I can fathom. But their reception and overall energy during the set was something I’ve never seen, heard, or experienced in my life.”

Rudy wasn’t prepared for the almost out-of-body experience he felt once he took to the stage.

“To my surprise, I felt an amazing sense of freedom on stage that made it incredibly easy to perform. The instruments played themselves, and my spirit was set loose. I couldn’t be more proud to represent my Brazilian heritage by playing these shows.”

He continued, “I’m more excited now for the future than ever, and this has been a perfect introduction for what’s coming later in the year. Thank you to the Shots Studios team, John Shahidi, Sam Shahidi, Justin Bieber, my family, and my amazing crew. Obrigado Brasil!”

EXCLUSIVE: YouTube Superstar Rudy Mancuso Tells Us About Opening for Justin Bieber Tonight!

YouTube sensation Rudy Mancuso is in Brazil right this second preparing to do his first live show tonight, which just happens to be opening for Justin Bieber on his Purpose World Tour.

Could you imagine?

What’s even more exciting-slash-scary is this is Rudy‘s home country.

We’ve been watching Rudy kill it on YouTube, rehearsing the entire month, and we talked to him this morning to see what’s going through his mind.

Here’s what the multi-talented musician, who also happens to be dating Maia Mitchell, told us:

“Opening for Justin in Brazil is undoubtedly a dream come true. Not only because of the opportunity as a musician, but because of the place,” Rudy, who’s managed by Shots Studios, tells JJJ. “As a Brazilian, I can’t think of a more impactful way to touch base with my roots than to perform in a stadium with tens of thousands of my own people. It’s a true blessing and privilege.”

He continued: “I’ve dedicated the last two months to writing, recording, and rehearsing a very elaborate one-man show. I’m attempting to do something on stage that I personally haven’t seen done before.”

Woah, we can’t wait to see it. Rudy tells us his set is about 35 minutes, and he’s playing all of his own instruments. Sounds like another amazing musician (*cough* Bieber) we know!

Good luck, Rudy!

Rudy Mancuso is Going on Tour With Justin Bieber

Rudy Mancuso will be joining Justin Bieber on two of his Purpose World Tour stops in Sao Paulo, Brazil this Spring.

The 24-year-old musician, who also became famous through his Awkward Puppets comedy show, opens up about how they became friends.

“We just became good friends, and kind of organically, our brains meshed because we’re both creative, and I was fond of his skill and he of mine, and we just almost accidentally created this friendship and partnership,” Rudy told People. “My friendship with Justin, I’ve treated it as any other close friendship I have. To be quite honest, I don’t have a lot of close friends, and I actually would consider Justin to be one of those friends, and it’s only because pretty much after the first time we hung out a couple years ago, he wasn’t anything more than ‘that cool kid Justin with a good heart.’ That was it; it was just easy. It’s like hanging out with a buddy. He’s just a good, talented friend.”

As for what he’ll do on stage, Rudy said, “It’s gonna be a little bit of a surprise. I’m gonna try to do something new, but I can tell you that’s it’s gonna be very different, and it’s not gonna be your average opening act. I’m not saying it’s comedy or music or both — but it’s definitely a one-man show, and I’m attempting something I’ve never done before.”

In case you didn’t know, Rudy is dating Maia Mitchell.

Maia Mitchell Dishes on Callie's Arrest on 'The Fosters': 'Stef & Callie Will Connect Over This'

Maia Mitchell Dishes on Callie's Arrest on 'The Fosters': 'Stef & Callie Will Connect Over This'

Maia Mitchell is slaying the black carpet at the Spotify Best New Artist Nominees party earlier this week in Los Angeles.

The Fosters actress stepped out for the event with Rudy Mancuso, Katelyn Tarver, Echosmith, James Maslow, Charlie Puth, Daya, Maren Morris, Symon, and Noah Cyrus.

Earlier, Maia opened up about Callie’s arrest on The Fosters, dishing that her character and mom Stef will connect even more.

“She really just needs to go give a statement because she’s worried about the other people and she wants to give all of the information,” Maia shared. “Mike is very much involved as well because he’s at the police station anyway. You see the mothers find out the full extent.”

She adds, “Stef and Callie really connect over their sense of social justice and that kind of need to fix everything. They’re very similar in a lot of ways. I don’t think Stef is mad at her. She really understands [the situation]…they’re just worried.”

TELL JJJ: Have you been watching The Fosters?

Maia Mitchell Talks Fashion & Acting With 'WhoWhatWear' Australia

Maia Mitchell Talks Fashion & Acting With 'WhoWhatWear' Australia

Maia Mitchell walks with Rudy Mancuso while out at The Grove in Los Angeles on Wednesday afternoon (May 25).

Speaking with WhoWhatWear Australia recently, the 22-year-old Fosters actress opened up about her fashion sense, acting advice and more. Check it:

On exploring her home country: “I’m really lucky because I was just visiting home and I got to spend six weeks in Australia. I went to Uluru, which I’ve always wanted to visit. I realised that I spend so much time travelling around different countries, and hadn’t actually seen Australia. So I’m definitely going to make more of an effort to try and see all over Australia—it really was one of the most spectacular things I’ve ever done.”

On her career advice for aspiring actresses: “This may sound blunt, but if there’s anything else you can imagine doing, or that you’ll be happy doing, do that first, because this is really hard, and you have to really, really, really love it for it to be worth it. The lifestyle is a huge sacrifice, and if you love your work, love getting up early and you’re excited by the idea of a day on set, then it’s totally worth sacrificing everything else.”

On her personal style: “My aesthetic is important to me. I like feeling good in what I’m wearing and I like feeling like a part of me is expressed through my aesthetic. As far as labels are concerned—not so much. I’m not really too concerned about what people think of my clothes, I just want to feel good when wearing them.”
