Justin Bieber to star in prime-time network special

The Justin Bieber celebrity train isn't slowing down. The pop singer's new album comes out June 15 and one week later, he's set to star in his first prime-time network TV special: "Justin Bieber: All Around the World" on NBC.

The format of the special is a mix of behind-the-scenes documentary footage and live performances from Bieber's seven-country, 12-day promotional tour for the new album, titled "Believe." (Why not "Beliebe"?)

If that sounds familiar, it's virtually the same format as Bieber's big-screen film from last year, "Justin Bieber: Never Say Never," which followed the Bieb's tour to promote his previous album.

But the near-identical nature of the films doesn't mean that the march of progress has completely passed Bieber. The new NBC special will feature one technological innovation known as the "Justin-Cam," which will give viewers a look at life through the eyes of Justin Bieber.

The second single from the new album, "Die in Your Arms," was released this week.
