Justin Bieber's manager has accused members of the Grammy Awards board of making a mistake by failing to nominate the teenage pop star for the 2013 award show.
Bing: 2013 Grammy nominees
The nominees were announced on Wednesday night, with fun., Frank Ocean and the Black Keys leading the pack. Bieber's protegee, Carly Rae Jepsen, picked up two nominations for her hit song "Call Me Maybe," but Bieber didn't receive a single nomination. After the nominees were announced, Bieber's manager, Scooter Braun, took to Twitter to criticize the board for failing to include the 18-year-old star, who previously scored two noms at the 2011 ceremony.
In a series of posts, he writes, "First... congrats to Carly Rae Jepsen. Thought u deserved a Best New Artist nom, but proud Call Me Maybe got u 2 noms. So proud of u. Second... this time there won't be any wise words, no excuses, I just plain DISAGREE. The kid (Bieber) deserved it. Grammy board u blew it on this one. The hardest thing to do is transition, keep the train moving. The kid delivered. Huge successful album, sold out tour, and won people over... this time 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. So to all those nominated... you do deserve it. You worked hard and u earned it. (I) just feel like so did JB."
The Grammy Awards will be handed out in Los Angeles on February 10.
