The Scheme defend Justin Bieber's miming
The Scheme have defended Justin Bieber for miming at his concerts on his 'Purpose World Tour'.
The rising pop rock band - comprised of Kyle Carpenter, Kristofer James and Aleksey Lopez - think the 'Sorry' hitmaker is a "wicked" singer and think it's acceptable for him to use a backing track when he is doing intense dance routines at the same time because otherwise it would be like "running a marathon".
Speaking exclusively to BANG Showbiz, they said: "Most of the times I've seen him he's sung live and I think he is a wicked singer. We will do shows and people asks if we want to mime it or are you comfortable with performing live and we are always very much live as much as possible.
"I hadn't heard that about Bieber. If that is the case that is interesting that he would do that because he's a wicked singer.
"If you are going to be jumping up and down and dancing as much he does I guess you want to take a break, it would be like running a marathon on stage."
Meanwhile, the group - who are supporting Union J next year in the UK - would love to team up with a girl band for a song.
They said: "We are huge fans of Little Mix. Their new song 'Shout Out To My Ex' is amazing. They are like the British version of Fifth Harmony, who are also pretty good as well."
The Scheme's EP 'Jerome Heights' is released on Friday (28.10.16).
