The 'Boyfriend' star failed to receive a single nomination for next year's ceremony.
Justin Bieber's Grammy Awards 2013 snub has been criticised by the singer's manager Scooter Braun.
The 'As Long As You Love Me' star was among the favourites to pick up a nomination during the ceremony in Los Angeles last night (5th December), but failed to make the shortlist in any category.
The Canadian's manager took to Twitter to hit out at those in charge of the nominations stating Justin "deserved" to be named among the stars going for the big prizes at next year's event.
"First...congrats to @carlyraejepsen . 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 wont be any wise words, no excuses, I just plain DISAGREE. The kid 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 succesful album, sold out tour, and won people over..."
"..this time he deserved to be recognized and I dont really have any kind nice positive things to say about a decision i dont agree with."
Scooter went on to congratulate all those nominated for the Grammys 2013 and told the teen titan's fans that Justin will remain "the underdog" for a little longer.
He continued: "so to all those nominated...you do deserve it. You worked hard and u earned it. Just feel like so did JB."
"To his fans...looks like we get to stay the underdog a little longer. #BRINGIT"
"I got a lot more I can say but for now....Im gonna leave it at that. Congrats to all those who got nominated including our own CRJ"
"life is long, with many ups and downs, but we get to keep going, everyday brings a new opportunity. NOTHING GREAT EVER CAME EASY."
Meanwhile, Justin failed to acknowledge the news on his own social networking account but confessed that he was back in the studio.
The 'One Time' star is also currently in the middle of his 'Believe' world tour – which will head to the UK in early 2013.
The Grammy Awards 2013 will take place live from the Staples Center in Los Angeles on 10th February.
