Drake joins Justin Bieber onstage for hometown gig

Rapper Drake thrilled concertgoers in his native Toronto on Saturday night (01Dec12) by joining fellow Canadian pop star Justin Bieber onstage for a performance of their duet Right Here.

Drake, real name Aubrey Graham, recently teamed up with the Baby hitmaker on his new album Believe, and on Saturday they played the track for more than 60,000 fans at the rapper's hometown's biggest stadium, the Rogers Center, also known as the SkyDome.


Surprising revellers as he joined Bieber, Drake told the crowd, "I'll tell you, there's very few people I met in the world that are as talented and as incredible as this young man right here. I want to thank (Bieber) for letting me live a childhood dream, which is my first opportunity to perform at the SkyDome. So thank you, my man."


The pair also sang a rendition of Drake's song The Motto, with the 18 year old filling in for Lil Wayne.
