Justin Bieber's manager slams Grammy bosses over nomination snub

Justin Bieber's manager has accused members of the Grammy Awards board of making a terrible mistake by failing to nominate the teenage pop star ahead of the 2013 prizegiving.

The potential winners were announced at the Grammy Nominations Concert Live event in Nashville, Tennessee on Wednesday night (05Dec12), with fun., Frank Ocean and The Black Keys leading the pack.


Bieber's protegee Carly Rae Jepsen picked up two nominations for her hit track Call Me Maybe, but the Baby hitmaker didn't receive a single nod.


After the nominees were announced, Bieber's manager Scooter Braun took to Twitter.com to criticise the board for failing to include the 18-year-old star, who previously scored two nods at the 2011 ceremony.


In a series of posts, he writes, "First... congrats (sic) to Carly Rae Jepsen. Thought u (sic) deserved a Best New Artist nom (sic), 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 recognised 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 10 February (13).
