Justin Bieber's manager Scooter Braun and fans were not happy when the 18-year-old Canadian crooner's name was visible absent from the 55th Annual Grammy Awards nominations list revealed Wednesday.
Although Braun's client singer Carly Rae Jepsen was nominated for Song of the Year and Best Pop Solo Performance for "Call Me Maybe," the manager took to Twitter to express his frustration with the fact that Bieber received no nominations.
"I just plain DISAGREE. The kid deserved it. Grammy board [you] blew it on this one," Braun tweeted after congratulating Jepsen's accomplishments. "The hardest thing to do is transition, keep the train moving."
Braun went on to outline the accomplishments of the 18-year-old singer who released his third album "Believe" in 2012 along with a sold out tour.
"The kid delivered. Huge successful album, sold out tour, and won people over," Braun tweeted. "...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."
Some fans of the singer took to Twitter to agree with his manager.
"He deserved it more than anyone," one fan tweeted. "I don't know any artist who works so hard like he does every single day!"
Another fan agreed with Braun, but expressed their pride in Bieber's accomplishments.
"Justin did the best he could and he made it. If the Grammy board doesn't see it then screw it," the fan tweeted Braun. "We've got more chances."
After his rant, Bieber's manager made sure to tweet a positive message to the singer's fans.
"To his fans...looks like we get to stay the underdog a little longer. #BRINGIT," Braun tweeted. "I got a lot more I can say but for now....I'm gonna leave it at that. Congrats to all those who got nominated including our own CRJ."
