However, an array of stars were up for a series of awards and left empty-handed, leaving fans to rally online following the snubs.
Justin Bieber was nominated in a whopping eight categories, including a mention in the notable Record, Song and Album of the Year categories, but left with no awards.
The ‘Peaches’ singer also gave an incredible performance at the event, which left fans disappointed that he wasn’t given more credit for his 2021 album ‘Justice’.
Taking to Twitter to share their love for the pop star despite his history of being snubbed, one fan wrote: “You mean to tell me that Justin Bieber has only won 2 Grammys. 13 years of changing the music industry and being the most streamed artist. what a scam. He deserves better.”
Justin has won two Grammys throughout his career despite 22 Grammy nominations.
Another fan wrote: “Unfortunately, Justin Bieber did not win in any of the 8 categories he was nominated in. It was stressed that the Grammys repeatedly 'begged' him to attend. All that only to not reward him. On a good note, Justin performed 'Peaches' excellently with Daniel Caesar and Giveon.”
“Justin Bieber has been in the industry for too long with one of the most successful careers in the last decade and continues to get disrespected by the recording academy year after year,” penned another.
