A Star-Studded Affair

Anant Ambani, the youngest heir of the Ambani fortune, is set to marry Radhika Merchant later this week. Their wedding is anticipated to be one of the most opulent events of the year, drawing attention from around the globe. The sangeet was attended by thousands, who were thrilled to see Bieber take the stage.

Dressed in a casual yet stylish ensemble of sunglasses, a ball cap, a white jacket, and a tank top, Justin belted out some of his biggest hits, including “Love Yourself,” “I’m the One,” and “Where Are Ü Now.” His energetic performance was met with roaring applause and cheers from the delighted crowd.

Justin pulled in the Big Bucks

Performing for such an illustrious audience doesn’t come cheap. According to Entertainment Tonight, Justin Bieber was paid a staggering $10 million for his performance. This sum is a testament to the Ambani family’s wealth and their willingness to spare no expense for their son’s wedding festivities.

According to the New Yorker last May, “most big-name musicians are available for private concerts, under the right conditions,” with rapper Flo Rida charging between $150,000 and $300,000 for stateside gigs, and up to $1 million for international private gigs.

A Rare Appearance

Bieber’s live performances have been few and far between since he cancelled his tour in 2022 after his Ramsay Hunt syndrome diagnosis, which causes partial facial paralysis. Despite these challenges, 2023 has seen Justin making a cautious return to the stage. Earlier this year, he performed at the NHL All-Star Weekend in Toronto and made a surprise appearance at Coachella.

Following in Rihanna’s Footsteps

The Ambanis are no strangers to hosting international superstars. Earlier this year, Rihanna was paid $8 million to perform at another pre-wedding event for the same couple, but outshines his other daughter’s nuptials, which featured a headline-grabbing performance by Beyoncé.

Wedding Weekend Expectations

As the actual wedding day approaches, rumours are swirling about who might perform at the main event. Speculation is rife that either Drake or Adele will be gracing the stage, adding to the already monumental anticipation. If these rumours are true, it would further cement the Ambani wedding as one of the most talked-about events of the year.

A Peek into the Extravagance

The sheer extravagance and star-studded guest list highlight a lifestyle of wealth and glamour, and allows us a glimpse into how the others live, which seems so far away from our reality and cost of living pressures back here in Australia. Rumour has it either Adele or Drake will feature at this weekend’s wedding. Either way, there’s no mistaking that the the Ambani wedding is set to be a historic event, capturing the imagination of people around the world.
