Melbourne: Teen pop sensation Justin Bieber was bombarded with eggs while performing at a concert in Sydney recently, but he didn`t crack under pressure and continued performing.

According to Sky News, the teen superstar was performing at the city``s Acer Arena on Friday night, when six eggs were launched from the crowd.

Footage of the incident showed two eggs landing within a metre of the singer during a routine, before four more dropped seemingly from above him, smashing instantly at the front of the stage, reports News.com.au.

Bieber backtracked away from the audience as a helper quickly cleaned up the mess, before the show went on.

The incident prompted a storm of criticism on social networking sites with one fan taking to Twitter to warn the culprit, "Dear person who threw eggs at @justinbieber in Sydney, you now have over #9millionbeliebers after you, be afraid! We go harder than hard!"
