Suni Lee is known for her amazing performance during the Tokyo Olympics.

The gymnast appeared on “The Ellen DeGeneres Show” on Thursday (September 30th) and she shared a perk of being a part of America’s Olympic team.  Lee was invited to the 2021 MET Gala where she found herself in front of Hailey and Justin Bieber.

Lee explained that she told Hailey she had danced to Justin’s hit, “Stay” for her first dance on “Dancing With The Stars.” Hailey then encouraged her to let Justin know, Lee nervously agreed but really wanted to decline the offer.  When she got close to Justin, Suni said she froze up and decided not to go up to him.

Ellen advised that Justin is super nice and told Suni that she should meet him at some point. Suni says it’s still on her bucket list.
