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.
Tell us on Facebook: Does Justin's manager have a point?
As a mother of teens, I have high respect for Justin Bieber and for the wonderful work his mother did raising him to be a humble and very successfull kid. Let's face it, life in the spotlight is not easy and he has been very good at keeping his reputation intact.
As a praying mom I pray for Justin and I know his mother is praying for him also. God has great plans for his life and a Grammy award will not keep God from accomplishing His plans on that boy's life. The best of his life is yet to come. I pray that once he is done with this phase of his life, that will be become the best worship leader this world has ever seen.
I read his mom's book and I know that God has his eyes on him and his wonderful Christian mom. He really doesn't need a grammy award, he already has all he needs. He is protected right on the palm of God'shand and this is what matters
