Speaking to the New York Post, Lisa said of the baby singer, “I said, ‘Wait, this is Justin Bieber, right? Would he be here? Is he here? He’s really here – this is Justin Bieber! ‘
“That was kind of exciting. I kind of put a kind in there so I’m a little bit cooler. It was exciting. I don’t look forward to meeting people – but Justin Bieber, he’s exciting. “

The reunion is the first time since the show in 2004 that all six lead actors were together in front of the cameras in the same room.
Lisa said that she felt “every emotion” while filming the episode.
“There was a lot of laughter and then real chatter – which I don’t know if that will be in there, but the puffy eyes are in there so that’s good. It’s been emotionally tough and great days, “she told the New York Post.
