Justin Bieber Grammys Snub: Scooter Braun Thinks Bieber Should Have Been Nominated

Justin Bieber's Grammys snub upset many.

It's a Grammys snub for Justin Bieber, whose name was noticeably not called out by Taylor Swift or LL Cool J at Wednesday night's Grammy Nominations Concert Live! on CBS.

Bieber, who released "Believe" this summer, an album that spawned radio hits like "Boyfriend" and "As Long As You Love Me," didn't make any public statements about the Grammy nominations, but his manager Scooter Braun did.

Over a series of tweets, Braun wrote that he felt the Bieber snub was out of line. "Grammy board u blew it on this one," he wrote in one tweet.

"He deserved to be recognized and I don't really have any kind nice positive things to say about a decision I don't agree with," commented Braun.

Check out his lengthy Twitter rant below.


Scooter Braun
first...congrats to . thought u deserved a best new artist nom, but proud Call Me Maybe got u 2 noms. so proud of u.

Scooter Braun
second....this time there wont be any wise words, no excuses, I just plain DISAGREE. The kid deserved it. Grammy board u blew it on this one

Scooter Braun
the hardest thing to do is transition, keep the train moving. the kid delivered. Huge succesful album, sold out tour, and won people over...

Scooter Braun
...this time he deserved to be recognized and I dont really have any kind nice positive things to say about a decision i dont agree with.

Scooter Braun
so to all those nominated...you do deserve it. You worked hard and u earned it. Just feel like so did JB.

Scooter Braun
To his fans...looks like we get to stay the underdog a little longer.

Scooter Braun
I got a lot more I can say but for now....Im gonna leave it at that. Congrats to all those who got nominated including our own CRJ

Scooter Braun
life is long, with many ups and downs, but we get to keep going, everyday brings a new opportunity. NOTHING GREAT EVER CAME EASY.

Each year generally leaves music fans scratching their heads at at least one of the Grammys' decisions. Last year, Kanye West's "My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy" was left off the list of nominees for album of the year -- despite being ranked near the top of every major publication's year-end lists (even Pitchfork gave it a rare perfect ten). West explained the omission during a mid-concert rant, arguing that he should have left more room between the solo album and "Watch the Throne," his collaboration with Jay-Z. "That's my fault for dropping 'Watch the Throne' and 'Dark Fantasy' in the same year," he said to a Chicago crowd. "But don't worry because me and Jay are going to keep making sh-t."

Both "Watch the Throne" and "Dark Fantasy" were nominated for Best Rap Album. The latter proved the winning ticket for West, who was the most nominated artist of the year and went home with a total of four awards.

It's worth noting that Taylor Swift's "RED" was not eligible for this year's Grammys. It was released after the cut-off for the awards, making Swift an easy choice as co-host for the Grammy Nominations Concert Live! and a sure favorite for the 2014 Awards.

The 55th Annual Grammy Awards will take place on Feb. 10 at Los Angeles' Staples Center. CBS will exclusively broadcast the show. Do you think TK was snubbed or deserved to be left out of the race? Weigh in in the comments.

What's Record of the Year? Here you go:

The category celebrates the achievement of the artist as well as the producers, mixers and engineers who worked on the track, unlike Song of the Year, which awards only writers.

Gotye won Record of the Year; he accepted the award from Prince, obviously.
