It looks like Justin Bieber is on the mend.

The singer took to his Instagram Story on Wednesday to show his fans that he can move both sides of his face after suffering from facial paralysis due to Ramsay Hunt Syndrome.

The video is captioned “Wait for it,” as we see Bieber looking around. The camera then zooms in right before he flashes a big smile.

At the top of the month, the 29-year-old singer canceled the remaining dates of his Justice world tour due to his diagnosis, which included shows in U.K., France, Poland, Australia, New Zealand, Denmark, and the Czech Republic.

He first shared that he was suffering from the syndrome last June, which left half of his face paralyzed. “So for those who are frustrated by my cancelations of the next shows, I’m just physically, obviously, not capable of doing them,” Bieber said in a video posted to social media. “This is pretty serious, as you can see. I wish this wasn’t the case, but, obviously, my body is telling me I gotta slow down.”

“Each day has gotten better and through all of the discomfort I have found comfort in the one who designed me and knows me. I’m reminded he knows all of me,” he continued. “He know the darkest parts of me that I want no one to know about and he constantly welcomes me into his loving arms. This perspective has give me peace during this horrific storm that I’m facing.”

Biber subsequently postponed his U.S. shows in June and early July before returning to the stage in late July. In September, he tweeted about the experience, writing, “I performed six live shows, but it took a real toll on me.”
