After days of hiding from the public in his Tel Aviv hotel room, 17-year-old pop star Justin Bieber performed at Tel Aviv's Hayarkon Park Thursday night, and then slipped away unnoticed to Jerusalem.

Following a visit to Yad Vashem, Bieber arrived at the Western Wall around 3 a.m. Friday morning with his mother and a posse of nearly 20, mostly body guards.

Bieber had previously expressed a desire to visit the holy sites. “I’m in the holy land and i am grateful for that. I just want to have the same personal experience that others have here," he said on his Twitter account.

However, following days of harassment by paparazzi, Bieber retreated out of the public's sight and only managed to visit Jerusalem under the cover of darkness following his much-anticipated concert.
