Really, that whole last bit looks awfully like steadicam (based on how it moves, the unlevel horizon, etc.).
The only questionable part is where the camera is "under the floor" and you see the bottom of the singer's shoes. This could either be a visual effects shot or just some crafty shooting/choreography under plexi near the edge of the stage.

Justin is dancing a elevated platform skinned with clear Lexan with a frame that is painted white.
They probably used a 3 axis remote head, probably a "mega mount", based on the 720 degree motion on the z axis on the opening shot. This could also be accomplished mounting a Libre Head horizontally and tilting down 90 degrees which makes the pan become the z axis.
Don't forget your speed control.
