Grammy Nominations 2012: Was Justin Bieber Snubbed?
The nominations for the 55th annual Grammy Awards were announced on Wednesday at the Grammy Nominations Concert in Nashville, and to the surprise of his fans, Justin Bieber's name wasn't included in a single category.
The pop star's newest album "Believe" was released in June of this year, and despite selling over 2 million copies and producing the hit single "Girlfriend," it failed to make the cut. Bieber's manager Scooter Braun was none too pleased with this development, and he wasn't shy about voicing his displeasure on Twitter. "This time there won't be any wise words, no excuses, I just plain DISAGREE," Braun posted. "The kid deserved it. Grammy board u blew it on this one."
In place of the Beebs, the ceremony's co-hosts — Taylor Swift and L.L. Cool J — instead honored a slew of other acts in such important categories as Record and Album of the Year. For Record of the Year, the nominees included "Lonely Boy" by The Black Keys, "Stronger (What Doesn't Kill You)" by Kelly Clarkson, "We Are Young" by fun. featuring Janelle Monet, "Somebody That I Used to Know" by Gotye featuring Kimbra, "Thinkin Bout You" by Frank Ocean, and "We Are Never Ever Getting Back Together" by Taylor Swift. In the category of Album of the Year, the honors went to "El Camino" by The Black Keys, "Some Nights" by fun., "Babel" by Mumford & Sons, "Channel Orange" by Frank Ocean and "Blunderbuss" by Jack White.
We know many Beliebers out there are certainly outraged by this news, but how do FOX News Magazine readers feel?
