The 'Boyfriend' singer says he was looking forward to the nominations before they were announced.

Justin Bieber has opened up about his recent snub by the Grammy Awards and says he hopes the awards show will recognise his music contributions "one day".

The 'As Long As You Love Me' singer says he was "looking forward" to this year's Grammys before it was announced he had failed to receive any nominations, but still feels blessed to have such a successful career at the age of 18.

"I would say that it's definitely something that I was looking forward to," Justin told Ellen Degeneres on her chat show today (14th December). "But I know that it'll happen one day.

"I'm so young," Justin reasoned. "I'm blessed just to be able to do what I love every day."

The 'Boyfriend' singer went on to say he hopes to be more successful at the Grammys in the future, but feels lucky to have picked up three awards at the American Music Awards back in November.

"The American Music Awards was a lot of fun, and hopefully one day [the Grammys will follow]," Justin added.

After news broke that Justin had failed to score any Grammy nods his manager Scooter Braun took to Twitter to disagree with the decision, saying the "kid deserved it".

Justin Bieber recently announced an additional 30 dates to his 'Believe' tour in 2013.
