Justin Bieber Snubbed At Grammy Nominations

Submitted by on December 7, 2012 – 9:37 am Comments

It is no big news that Justin Bieber has had an amazing year. With the release of “Beauty An A Beat”, many felt that he was surely in line to be nominated this year for a Grammy. However, that was not the case. Manager of the “Boyfriend” singer, Scooter Braun, was irritated that the Grammy’s didn’t want to nominate his number one singer and took to twitter. There he mentioned how he was upset and that it was a bad move on them. It is shocking that the Biebs didn’t receive any nominations.

Fans may be upset with the snub that Bieber got, but then again, he did receive 3 American Music Awards this year. Maybe the Grammy’s wanted to give the not so known artists a chance. There are a lot of unknown artists on the list which gets the fans wondering, are they just filler? Simply put we will all see in the end, right?

The Grammys always have the best performances and that is one reason to watch, but what about the nominations. Many feel that this list isn’t what they would call “the best”, but it is something. With MTV Music Awards and American Music Awards, it is weird that they would have the Grammys on top of it. However, it is another way to honor the musicians for bringing us great music right?

Many artists aren’t really upset with the snub that they receive because there are other ways to show that you are a great singer. Bieber wasn’t upset and neither was Scooter, Bieber’s manager. He was just venting and somehow the news media, yes, including us, decided to jump on it. It is always fun to hear that people get upset after winning big in one Awards Ceremony. What do you think of Bieber’s snub? Did he deserve more awards?
