PROMISING dancer Lewis Smith could hardly "be-lieb" it after bagging the chance to share the stage with pop megastar Justin Bieber.

The 13-year-old from Rawmarsh will be showing off his moves at Hyde Park on Sunday after clinching a spot to be a backing dancer for the US teen idol (pictured below) as he brings his Purpose tour to London.

Lewis, who trains at Team Katalyst in Parkgate, has been street dancing for six years and submitted an online audition video for Bieber’s management to check out.

Dad Ian said he was delighted to hear back that he had landed a place at the chart-topper’s concert in front of thousands of screaming Beliebers.

“It’s amazing, considering he was up against thousands of other people,” said Ian.

“I think it’s really something and am very proud of him.”

Ian and Lewis’s mum Lisa will be accompanying their talented teenager to London for his big concert debut.
