The Grammy nominees were announced yesterday. There’s one surprisingly bad artist that is ecstatic to be in… and one really good one that got snubbed and his manager isn’t too happy about it.
His manager Scooter Braun was shocked and vented about it on Twitter. He said, “I just plain DISAGREE. The kid deserved it. Grammy board u blew it on this one.”
Then he did take the time to congratulate the nominees that did make it, including his own Carly Rae Jepsen. But then he continued on the poor Bieber bandwagon. He continued, “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 recognized.” Then later he tried to pull at the heart strings of the Beliebers when he tweeted, “Looks like we get to be the underdog a little longer.”
But it looks like another artist managed to trick the academy into nominating him.
Among the Best Dance Recording nominees, there are some familiar names like Skrillex, Calvin Harris, Swedish House Mafia. Then there’s Al Walser with his song ‘I Can’t Live Without You’.
The Academy did some digging after they realized this was an unknown terrible artist, and it turns out he scammed his way into a nomination.
The details aren’t really clear but apparently he claimed to a part of the Recording Academy and joined all their social media hubs. He started promoting his name and hyping all his songs. When it came time for voting, everyone voted for him because they knew the name, without listening to the terrible song.
An anonymous source says the Recording Academy is ‘embarrassed by the situation’ and suspects that foul play was involved but there’s no indication that they’re going to do anything about it.
