My World Tour- Experiencia Backstage
En el 2011, gané un concurso en una estación de radio para viajar a Buenos aires al concierto de Justin el 12 de Octubre. Cuando el día llegó, recuerdo que les enseñé lo que había impreso porque ahí estaba toda la información que necesitaban. Me dieron mi pase y nos llevaron (al grupo de ganadores) por una puerta, la cual nos llevaba al backstage. Había mucha gente yendo de lado a lado y ocupados. Nuestra guía era Allison Kaye quién también estaba con con un hombre que nos traducía todo a nosotras. Nos decían algo acerca de las cámaras mientras nosotras tratábamos de ver el escenario, las luces y la música. Vimos los trajes, también vimos a los bailarines y había MUCHA COMIDA Y BOTELLAS DE AGUA en mesas largas. Fue muy bueno estar en el backstage. Finalmente, fuimos al vestidor de Justin, ERA MUY LINDO!!!! Había un sillón, una televisión de plasma, un cuaderno y toda su ropa. También había más agua detrás y fruta. Nos llevaron a la entrada del estadio y nos preguntaron si teníamos pases. Eso fue muy padre, luego vimos a Pattie, Jaxon, Jazmyn, Scrappy, Alfredo, Scooter, Carin Morris, Dj Tay James y muchos más! Nos preguntábamos en donde estaba Justin y nos dijeron que estaba ensayando y no podía salir. Estaba practicando para el show, fue una gran experiencia.
Believe Tour- Experiencia OLLG
Cuando supe que iba a venir a Cordoba, le dije a mi mamá que quería conocer a Justin Bieber. Cuando fuimos a comprar boletos, todos los pases M&G habían sido vendidos. Fuimos a la página y compramos los boletos, ya que aún quedaban algunos en la sección VIP de oro. Estaban en medio y un poco lejos del escenario, pero de cualquier manera, yo quería ir. Al día siguiente realizamos la compra, una vez comprados, fuimos a recogerlos. Cuando finalmente los tuve no podía creerlo y le dije a mi mamá “Detenme que me estoy muriendo!” Una vez que regresamos a la casa, y prendimos la televisión, estaban hablando de Justin en Cordoba. Estaba muy feliz y contenta. Tenía uno de esos calendarios de Justin y fui tachando los días hasta que el día FINALMENTE LLEGÓ!! Noviembre 8- estaba hiperactiva. Me movía de lado a lado y no paraba de cantar. Me vestí y fui al estadio Kempes (Estadio Mario Alberto Kempes). Mi corazón latía a mil por minuto por horas hasta que llegó la hora del show.
Cuando Justin empezó a cantar NO PODÍA CREERLO! Después de unas 12 canciones, Justin empezó a cantar Beauty and a Beat, y Jenn apareció frente de mi. Antes de ser elegida, mi mamá me llamó para ver si había conocido personalmente a Justin y 10 minutos después apareció Jenn, wow! No podía oír nada porque había mucho ruido, pero me pregunto si quería ser la One Less Lonely Girl! Mi mamá me dijo “Cree en que lo vas a conocer, y no dejes de creerlo” Yo estaba esperando a saber quién sería la OLLG. Tenía muy pocas esperanzas pero al final fui elegida. Estaba disfrutando el concierto y tuve esta gran experiencia con Justin.
Mientras esperaba a subir al escenario, mascaba chicle y tomaba coca-cola. Estaba muy nerviosa porque no tenía idea de qué iba a pasar. Escuchaba a Justin cantar y no sabía que hacer, incluso cuando subía los escalones a la silla. Cuando lo vi estaba muy emocionada. Aunque no soy una gran Belieber (ya no más, TODAVÍA LE GUSTA JUSTIN) Justin es muy lindo, en verdad lo admiro mucho. No solo me gusta su apariencia, pero la persona que es. Bailar con Justin fue como…WOW! ES JUSTIN BIEBER! Estaba en un momento que no podía superar. Fue super lindo y caballeroso mientras bailábamos, CREO QUE EL MEJOR QUE HE TENIDO. Lo mejor acerca de Justin es que es en verdad un buen modelo a seguir y ama a sus fans. Estoy orgullosa de la persona que es.
Al final, me preguntó “cuál es tu nombre?” Luego corrimos a backstage, me abrazó, besó y corrió al escenario rápido. Cuando regresé a mi lugar, muchas niñas me abrazaron y felicitaron. Se tomaron fotos conmigo y quería usar la corona. Había una niña llorando mucho y me preguntó si podía comprar la corona. Pude ver que era una verdadera Belieber y yo necesitaba dinero, entonces se la vendí. La gente dijo muchas cosas groseras acerca de mi…- “pagó para ser ollg” “es una p*ta, perra, es la prostituta de Justin” me hirieron muchísimo. Probablemente soy la OLLG más odiada y no sé por qué. Ya no me importan los haters. Mi consejo para ti es, cree en que lo vas a conocer y NUNCA LO DEJES DE CREER. Piensa positivamente, cree, por que tus sueños se harán realidad. Lo conocerás y serás la One Less Lonely Girl algún día! XOXOXO

My World Tour – Backstage Experience
In 2011, I won a radio contest to travel to Buenos Aires for Justin’s concert on October 12. When the day arrived, I remember I showed them what I had printed because there was all this information that they needed. I got my pass and they led us (group of winners) through a door, which carried us backstage. There were many people going from side to side, moving about being busy. Our guide was Allison Kaye who was also with a man who was translating for us. They told us about the cameras, while we managed to see the stage, lights and music. We saw the costumes, we also saw the dancers and there was so much FOOD AND WATER BOTTLES on many long tables. It was really good being backstage. Finally, we went to the dressing room of Justin, IT WAS SO CUTE !!!! There was a couch, a plasma televison and there was a notebook as well as his clothes. There was also more water and fruit at the end. They took us to the entrance of the stadium and asked us if we had passes and stuff. That was very good, then we saw Pattie, Jaxon, Jazmyn, Scrappy, Alfredo, Scooter, Carin Morris, DJ Tay James and a lot more! We were wondering where Justin was and they told us that he was in rehearsal and could not leave. He was practicing his routine for the show. It was a very nice experience.
Believe Tour – OLLG Experience
When I found out he was coming to Cordoba, I told my mom I wanted to meet Justin Bieber. When we went to buy tickets, all the meet and greets were already sold out. We got onto the page to buy the tickets and there were some in the VIP gold sector. They were in the middle and a bit far from the stage but I still wanted to go. The next day, we made the purchase and went to get the tickets and once they were printed, I could not believe it. When I finally got them, I told my mom, “hold me because I’m dying!” Once we returned to my house and turned the TV on, they mentioned Justin being in Cordoba and I was happy and just excited. I had one of Justin’s calendars and I spent weeks crossing off the days until the day FINALLY ARRIVED – November 8. I was hyperactive, I kept moving and I could not stop singing. I got dressed and went to Kempes Stadium (Estadio Mario Alberto Kempes). My heart was beating a mile a minute for hours until it was time for the show.
When JUSTIN started performing, I COULD NOT BELIEVE IT. After about 12 songs, Justin was performing Beauy and a Beat and Jenn appeared in front of me. Before I was chosen, my mom had called me to see if I had been able to meet him personally and 10 minutes later, Jenn appeared, wow! I could not hear anything because there was so much noise but she asked me if I wanted to be the One Less Lonely Girl! My mom had told me “believe that you will meet him and do not stop believing.” I was waiting to see who would be the OLLG. I had very little hope and ended up being picked. I was enjoying the show, which was amazing, and got this amazing experience with Justin.
While I waited to go on stage, I chewed gum and drank Coca-Cola. I was so nervous because I didn’t know what was going to happen. I listened closely to Justin singing and didn’t know what to do, even as I climbed the steps to go on. When I saw him I was very excited; even though Im not much of a Belieber (anymore – she still likes Justin!). Justin is very cute, I really admire him a lot. I like not just his looks but the person that he is. Dancing with Justin, it was like WOW IT’S JUSTIN BIEBER, I was in a trance from which I could not recover. I was very elated to be there with him. HE WAS VERY SWEET AND TENDER WHILE DANCING, I THINK THE BEST I’VE EVER HAD. The best thing about Justin is that he’s a REAL role model and he loves his fans. I am proud of the person that he is.
At the end, he asked me “what’s your name?” then we ran backstage. He hugged me and kissed me then left really quickly. Back at my seat, a lot of girls hugged me and congratulated me. They took photos with me and wanted to wear the crown. There was a girl who cried a lot and asked to buy my crown. I could see she was a true belieber and I needed money so I sold it to her. People said so many mean things about me – “she paid to be OLLG”, “she’s a slut, bitch, she was Justin’s prostitute”, they hurt me a lot. Actually, I am (probably) the most hated OLLG ever and I don’t know why but I don’t care about haters anymore. My advice to you is to believe that you will meet him AND NEVER STOP BELIEVING IT. Think positively, believe, because your dreams will come true. You will meet him and you will be One Less Lonely Girl someday! XOXOXO
Hey there readers!
It’s officially 2015 and that means OLLG Tracker is almost two years old. WOW! It feels like just yesterday that this was an idea, which has grown into something so amazing. There weren’t many new posts last year due to the fact that Justin was not on tour. Thank you to everyone who has stuck with me throughout the year, I still got many tweets and DMs from people saying they can’t wait for more stories! The blog still got about 50,000 views for 2014 and for that I am extremely grateful. Starting the new year of with a new layout for the blog – what do you think?!
Beliebers are so excited for what Justin has in store for 2015, who would have thought that a year would go by so quickly?? 2014 definitely had its ups and downs but 2015 will be even better. Justin is coming back stronger than ever and I just can’t wait! There are many new ideas in store for OLLG Tracker; I can’t say what as yet since they are still in the works but be ready! I’m definitely going to need help running different aspects of OT’s social media – such as Instagram, ask, etc. – so if you’re interested, let me know! In the meantime, as Justin says, GET READY!
Arguably one of Justin’s sweetest and best music videos to date, the One Less Lonely Girl video features Ohio-native Grace Wilson. Then 15 years old, Grace was nervous to audition, as any other girl would be. This was her first time doing something like this and she was extremely excited to be picked out of thousands of other girls to star alongside Justin Bieber in his second music video. As he wasn’t anywhere near as popular back then as he is today, Grace didn’t know much about Justin; he was just a normal 15 year old boy to her. However, she listened to his music and found it to be pretty good, so she was confident that the video would turn out great.
Shot in Watertown, Tennessee, the concept of the video is that Justin is trying to win a girl’s heart by sending her on a scavenger hunt. In the video, Justin is playing his guitar in a laundromat while waiting for his laundry to be finished, when Grace walks in and silent sparks fly between them. She then leaves but not before dropping a scarf close to where he was seated. Justin picks up the scarf and immediately starts hatching his plan to impress his future leading lady. When Grace goes back the next day, she is disappointed when she doesn’t see Justin but notices a sign in front of her which leads her on a scavenger hunt. She follows the arrows and the signs around town, picking up sweet gifts left by Justin along the way, including a puppy, flowers and chocolate. The scavenger hunt leads her right back to the laundromat which has been romantically transformed, where Justin is waiting for her with her scarf.
Grace was nervous to shoot the video but had fun. She described Justin as a very down to earth guy and really funny. In between shoots, they kept playing with the puppies which was fun (in a behind the scenes video, it was revealed that one of the puppies pee’d on Justin! Yikes) They remained friends after the shoot and she was even a guest at his 16th birthday party. Although Grace hasn’t spoken to Justin since last year, she is still a fan of his music. She went to one of his Believe Tour shows in LA and although she wasn’t affected by his OLLG performance, she loved the show as he is an excellent performer and very talented.
“He is really blessed. His music is great and keeps getting better. And he has amazing fans.”
Since the One Less Lonely Girl music video, she has been in a music video for Chris Young’s song “You”. Being in Justin’s music video was a blessing and she is still grateful to this day to have had that experience.
Rebecca was the One Less Lonely Girl in Nottingham, England on the My World Tour! With her permission, this is a repost of the story that she submitted to My Bieber Experience:
My name is Rebecca, I’m 16 [now 19] and I live in Nottinghamshire, UK. On the 19th November 2010, my two friends, Chloe and Bridie and I camped out all night to buy six tickets to see Justin Bieber in concert in Sheffield, UK. By 9 o’clock, when the tickets went on sale, there was a lot of people queuing, so we were really pleased we stayed out in the cold, all night to be at the front of the line. We all wanted really good seats, so when the woman offered us front row seats, we were ecstatic! We all jumped up to hug eachother but headbutted really hard at the same time LOL! During the run up to the concert, my mum also booked 3 seats for us to see Justin in Nottingham the day after we were seeing him in Sheffield! Finally on the 23rd of March 2011, the day of the concert in Sheffield, we all skipped school and went to the Motorpoint Arena early thinking we might see Justin and all the crew. Eventually a tour bus pulled up to the arena, everyone went crazy! Pattie, Dan Kanter, Ryan Good, Kenny, Jaden Smith, Willow Smith etc. came off the bus but Justin wasn’t there. We were all gutted because we hoped that we would get to see him before the show started! The concert was amazing. We enjoyed every minute of it! We were also stood right in front of Justin’s team so we spoke to a few of them and high 5’ed some of them, they were all really nice and made us all laugh! During the concert Dan Kanter kept throwing guitar picks into the crowd and one landed in front of me. My favourite Justin Bieber song is ‘One Less Lonely Girl’, it always has been and always will be. So when I saw Allison Kaye choose the OLLG, I kinda died inside. She was so beautiful and I was so jealous at the fact that she got to be on stage with Justin while he sang my favourite song. Little did I know that 24 hours later at the Nottingham concert, I would be chosen by Allison to be OLLG! On the way to the Nottingham concert on the 24th March, my dad said to us that none of us could go onstage that night because our seats weren’t that good, but I said that it could still happen. Well didn’t I prove him wrong! I was chosen to be the One Less Lonely Girl, my heart was beating so fast as I was walking backstage. I actually thought it was all a dream, I couldn’t believe this was happening! We were sitting right at the back of the arena, I was so shocked! I got to meet some more of the dancers and they were all joking around with me and I also saw Jaden and Carin. I went on stage, and as soon as I saw Justin I was blown away. He was BEAUTIFUL, his eyes were gorgeous! I couldnt believe that he was staring into my eyes and singing to ME! When he hugged me, all I could think was that this was the most incredible night of my life. Something I will never, ever forget. Justin ran off stage to get ready for the next song and I was taken backstage by the dancers and I got to meet Kenny again, he knuckle touched me and said I was lucky. I also got to speak to Willow Smith! When I was walking back to my seat with TC, everyone was shouting to me that I was so lucky and were smiling and being really lovely.When I got to Bridie and Chloe, they were crying so much and all I could to was just break down in tears with them, hugging them both. This meant so much to me and I still can’t describe how I felt that night. NEVER SAY NEVER. I dont think I can thank Justin enough for his beautiful music and making these past two years of my life amazing. -@RebeccaRhiannon
Since the My World Tour, Rebecca has seen Justin again on the Believe Tour. It was amazing and watching Justin perform OLLG gave her goosebumps. It was a weird feeling knowing she was in the same position as the girl on stage just two years before. As for her roses, she still has them! Her mother got them dried and she keeps one in a frame along with her tickets from the show.

Throwback to 2011! I was on Google searching for pictures when I came across this article on a Singaporean news website. I remember the uproar on twitter when Nicole Hussey was picked for One Less Lonely Girl Singapore on the My World Tour. As usual, the rumours and the accusations started with people saying she paid to be the OLLG, she had prior connections, etc. Here are some pictures of her on stage with Justin and an interview that she did on her experience, featuring her mother and sister. (All media courtesy of the new paper)
Marta met Shadee while on a student exchange and when she found out she had been an OLLG, she told her about the blog! Thank you Marta (@kidrauhlsollg__) for contacting Shadee and conducting the interview!
Age at the time: 13
Location: 4th row close to the stage
At the Rotterdam, Holland show on the My World Tour, Shadee was picked to be the One Less Lonely Girl (by a man she did not recognize.) picked me to be the OLLG. In the car an hour before the concert, she had actually made a joke about being the One Less Lonely Girl and then it happened! It was something she had dreamed of and it was coming true. Shadee was in total shock when she was picked. She was speechless and a feeling of happiness overwhelmed her. She believes that what made her stand out was the fact that she was not so hysterical as a lot of the other fans were. She was just enjoying the concert; not crying, just singing along with his songs. She also wore a purple shirt, which may have helped (at the time.)
Going backstage, all she could feel was excitement. Justin was her idol and she had followed everything he did. She had watched every interview, every clip on YouTube. Being able to see him in real life at his concert was a dream come true on its own and she had counted down the days until the concert. Now it was even better because Justin himself was about to sing to her on stage. Shadee was surprisingly calm backstage and extremely happy. Before she went on stage, she met Ryan.
In Shadee’s eyes, Justin was very handsome in real life and smelled really good. When she was escorted to the stool in the centre of the stage, she sat down and Justin handed her the bouquet of roses. He touched her face and stood so close to her that she felt like she could kiss him. Justin looked deep into her eyes and sang the ending of the song directly to her. When it was over, he hugged her tight and she practically melted! The best thing about being the OLLG for Shadee was the hug. However, the worst part was the mean messages she received from people, telling her she didn’t deserve to get picked because she wasn’t overly-excited during the show. However, they have no idea how thankful she is that it happened and how happy the experience made her feel.
When she left the stage, she met Kenny and he told her congratulations. Although she got a lot of hate messages, there were still many people who were really happy for her. When she got back to her seat, she got into a group hug with her sister and her niece while they laughed and cried at the same time. People congratulated her and a little girl asked for a picture with her and the roses. She was also asked to do interviews on her experience.
Almost three years later, Shadee still has the roses – one of which she gave to Marta! When Justin performed in Holland for the Believe Tour, she was at the show. She preferred the My World Tour show because it felt more personal and she thought that Justin behaved more grateful to his fans at his first concert there.
