    “knock knock”
    “Whos there?”
    “Esperanza Spalding”
    “Esperanza Spalding who???”

    HAHA I CANT BELIEVE JB LOST IT 2 HER! I MEAN HE HAS WORKE SO HARD &DESERVED It! But still proud he even got nominated!:)

    • justinhater101

      first of all….just because someone is POPULAR doesnt mean that they have true talent. MARK MY WORDS. in another couple of years no one will even care about him….i mean just look at Zac Effron….he was super popular and we havent heard anything about him(thank God) no one cares about him any more. and quite frankly justin isn’t as popular as you think……he has alot of people who don’t like him..or more acuratly…(me)…hate him..at least his music. Im happy that the judges are looking for REAL talent instead of how many dorky tweens are obsessed with them.
      I am very happy about the outcome of the Grammys and if Esperanza Spalding wasn’t well known then….she sure is now.

      • mary

        all the Justin bieber’s haters should go and die !!!u are all jealous !!!!!!shame on u

      • justin LOVER♥

        dont be a hater!

      • Jasper

        O common stupid hater i thought this was a fan site go make u own blog site If ur gonna dis JB ur just jealous and r annoying other Ppl if u hate justin then why were u searching stuff up about him get a freakin life

      • jblover

        Dont be a hater,ha but seriously he got talent and besides Zac is old nobody cares to much about people near or over 20

      • tigerblood13

        Exactly! zac is old…waht do u think is going to happen to jB eventually?

      • soccermtb13

        aight, im not the biggest fan of bieber but he must have some talent if he has this many fans. i came to this looking for a good vid of the grammys (which they kinda sucked) still Esperanza Spalding is a very talented singer and bass player

        if u havent heard of her well thats unfortunate but her voice is amazing and her music will last longer than any pop music that justin makes (how many of u still listen to the jonas brothers? honestly)

        she has performed in the white house 2 within 6 months i believe… sooo if that doesnt mean anything to ya well…. bieber has never been invited to the white house to perform, its fine if u like bieber more, its ur opinion not mine, just dont go hating on an incredibly amazing artist like Spalding just because u havent heard of her.

      • Becca

        why are you even wastingg your time even searching for justin bieber? writing all of that just makes you a retard! if you hate him so much you wouldn’t be searching for him on the internet wasting your time writing god people stop being retarded

      • ILoveJustin

        @soccermtb13, before you say anything like “Justin never went to the white house” you better clear up your facts couse Justin Bieber performed for barack obama in the white house last christmas singing stevie wonders song…he has also been to the white house a couple of times because obama’s daughters are a big fan of him :P

    • Teresa

      TRUE THAT!

    • Helen-Ann

      hey i know some of u dont like hm but if u wanna start crushing kids dreams then do it but if u wanna say mean things go somewhere else because im only 12 and i love him he wont die and people have a right to like him so if u wanna be a brat then leave

      • justin who?

        Crushing kids dreams?… in what way are dreams being crushed here?… This is pathetic.

  • Jamie

    Did anyone else see the guy fall on his back after flipping off the platform when JB was singing from the top level during his Grammy performance? He was on the left inside section.

  • KJ

    I’m glad MUSE one. I love MUSE. :)

    • justinhater101

      I have 2 agree w/ that! Go muse! uprising is one of the best songs!

    • PandasAreAwesome

    but iam still so so sad…….
    even me i will upset because i know that i can deserve it……
    but i still love you justin bieber!!!!
    you can do it!!!!!

  • Bielieber 4 sure

    I was heartbroken when I didn’t hear his name and when they said that esperonza chick I’m like wat the hell that’s mesdsed up justin should have won that no one knows who she is

  • Azaria

    Unfortunately, The Grammy’s aren’t a popularity contest like a lot of other award shows. I’m still unsure of WHO Esperanza Spalding is, she’s actually been around a while and doesn’t have anything all that noteworthy. I actually think all four of the other artists would’ve been better choices. I was expecting Drake to win, since he’s been all over the place, on other people’s songs, and his own. But I still can’t believe whats-her-name won over those two.

    • Scooter53

      Florence and the Machine should have won. This category isn’t a popularity contest on how many screaming tween fans you have. It is voted by members of an Academy that probably don’t listen to Justin Bieber’s music. Pop music is not the only genre of music that is listened and voted on. Bruno Mars missed out because of the cut off time. If he had been nominated he would have beaten out Justin Bieber. Lets wait for puberty to take hold of Justin’s voice and then feel if he still has talent. Can you say David Cassidy, Bobby Sherman, Leif Garrett….

      • justinhater101


      • Jessiii

        didn’t justin beiber go through puberty already plus i was expecting drake to win -.-

  • joel

    Its really sad that jb didn’t win…. I’m not a fan but my kid is he deserved it

  • Reggie

    Grammys are for talented artist who can sing! Plus 12 yr old girls can’t vote, which is why he lost!!!

    • Cass

      I am not a bieber fan but Justin does have some talent! And the winner,I never heard of her.

      • justinhater101

        i didn’t either but she has a real talent with the bass. im glad she won.

      • cass

        So what? JB has accomplished so much, and was HUGE this year, he really deserved it this year. but, i heard they were letting less unknown people win, so basically, if she won, anyone can

  • annUKafricano=D

    she’s not tht new..she into r’n’b nd stuff..but seriously wat were the grammy officals thinking…ruling out drake and justin of all ppl…sad times =_=’

  • victorvien

    talent is not the same thing as popularity. People who want Bieber to win just because they like him but never heard Esperanza’s music cannot judge because they are prejudiced.

  • Cass

    First, I am NOT bieber fan. But, I was so sure Justin was gonna win Best New Artist, and I was kind of hoping he would too. Then I hear that ladys name and first i thought;
    Then I thought- Justin Shouldve won, he deserved it!
    Now, that is not a bieber fan talking. I like some of his songs, but I dont have posters of him, or anything. I was literally DISGUSTED and OUTRAGED at that. I would like to know how the hell is this chick, and what did she do that is so great that Justin didnt win. I was so ANGRY! The grammys sucked this year! Because Justin shouldve won something! I mean come on, he was the biggest star this year, and for him not to win anything is wrong. If the people voted, Justin wouldve deff won everything! I think the people who vote for the Grammys purposely did that so he wouldnt win. I cant belive this. And, I dont care if the winner has talent, Its about BEST NEW ARTIST. The new artist who was ON TOP this year! AND I didnt hear ONE THING about her. It was all about Justin this year. Thats my opinion!

  • macklla

    i got soooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo MAD THAT HE DID NOT WIN ONE AT ALL I BIT MY SELF ON THE FINGER ON ALLMOST BLEEDING AND JUST GRRRRRRR BUT MABBY NEXT TIME GO JUSTIN

    • justinhater101

      • justinhater101

His songs shatter windows…im still recovering my poor ears..the pain….kthxbi…….

  • lily

    what is wrong if she wins any one can win

    • justinhater101

      not nessisarly it just means that they are looking for poeple with real music talent and genius. i am pleasently suprised that they dirgarded the popularity and looked right at the actual music instead of the screaming fans. fans really don’t mean anything.

      • cass

        they were doing people who are less known

    • cass

      yeah, i guess they were lettin people with less talent, and who are less known win

      • justinhater101

        Not less talent. JB HAS NO talent u people are tone deaf if you think he can sing. im a choir nerd. I KNOW what real singing sounds like.

  • cass

    So many teens/tweens are gonna hate this chick, shes gonna be knownas ‘the person who beat justin at the grammys’ XD.

    • justinhater101

      yeah but she will be looked at as a hero by everyone else.

      • Reality

        Amen to that.

  • mrsbieber

    why? justin is the best <3 she paid 2 win I mean nobody knows her as many pple knows Jibu…but we know Justin is the one that really haave to won!!! ILY JB ;)

  • Jbfan

    • justinhater101

      • justinhater101

        by the way nothing against you….im just a troll that’s all………AND I ENJOY IT! im also a Twilight hater if you can believe that.

  • Ally

    Alright justinhater101 get a life! Why are you on a bieber fan site if youhate him! Go be jealous some where else! You are NOT welcome on this site, GO AWAY!!!! We here love Bieber, and he won’t fade away in a few years, Zac Efron was just in a very good movie btw! Bieber is amazing and talented and is here to stay! He has talent and the drive to make it forever. So what if he didn’t win a Grammy, he was nominated, I don’t see you getting nominated for a Grammy! So bye, leave this site and I LOVE BIEBER! Never freaking say never!

    • justinhater101

      sure thing and justinhater 101 is more than one person…..actually its about 3 poeple…you will have2 talk to them as well….we are just trolls who enjoy irratating people……..kinda how we just did right now with you…oh and btw….haters aren’t jealous what is to be jealous about? that fact that he lost the grammy proves our point.

      • tigerblood13

        yup perfectly said that is the great thing about living in america. freedom of speech also incompasses trolling….ha i think trolling is funny especially seeing how worked up poeple get! go troller! keep at it! people are allowed to voice their opinion. I got on this website because i was cuirous to see if any of the same morons were the ones who were tweaking the Esperelda webpage what morons….

    • Hannah:)

      so true ally justinhater101 is just pathetic and one day he or she will realize that. i would just like to say this…….I LOVE JUSTIN BIEBER!!!!
      ~never say never ;)~

  • justinhater101

    ha….i watched the video with the little kids getting all bummed out about the grammy!!! I find it very humorous how all of Justin’s friends are prepubecent squeaky little girls…..i mean it is rediculous…i walk into wall-mart(aka wally world lol) and i see a tee shirt for like a 2 year old w/ his ugly mug on it good grief. the fandom is one of the reasons i can’t stand him.

  • Ally

    I’m disgusted by you! Why can’t you just leave him alone, have you met him, are you close to him, have you ever talked to him? Get over yourself! The fact that somebody elses sorrow amuses you makes me want to barf! What has Justin ever done to you! Go away would ya?

    • tigerblood13

      wow calm down would you…no one here really knows him. but yeah…don’t worry the troll was probably board out of their mind and decided to irrate bieber fans don’t worry they probably wont stick around. so calm yerself your a fan right? don’t let their oppinion worry u. peace out.

      • justinhater101

        yup! boredom is the mother of all trolls we came by this website by accident and decided to stir up some trouble really we aren’t serious so dont’ take offence….anyway…we,re done trollin so TTFN. better luck next time justin..lols

    • Hannah:)

      oh shut up none of you have a life!!!! (i don’t mean you ally i mean the others)

  • Ally

    Oh yeah, and I do agree that you have your right to free speach and you can use it, but, we are all people, and we should treat everyone with respect, even if you don’t want to! You can not like somebody but atleast show them respect, its the least you can do! I apologize for my immaturity, I hope you can respect that! I also hope you can apologize for upsetting plenty of people, although not all of us were gutsy enough to say anything plenty of people are upset with you! Stay good, stay nice, and be respectful, THANK YOUUUUUU!!!!!!(:

    • justinhater101

      otay…..by by now.

      • tigerblood13

        C? what did i tell you. their gone. by the way do you know about the poeple who messed with the Esperelda webpage? there are trools who are JB fans 2! can u belive that!

  • Ally

    Thank you, God bless, and Never Say Never.(:

  • Grace

    I mean if she got a grammy she probably deserved it but just hurting EVERYBODY else isin’t worth it!!! that made me so sad when he closed his eyes and prayed then didnt hear his name!! wow ya’ll are retarded

    • Reality

      I doubt they made her the winner so they could hurt other people. Do not say everybody else, that’s far from true.
      She won, because the academy made her the winner. End of story.

  • Readio

    Doesn’t matter how famous you are.it’s the MUSIC awards not fame award what matters is the quality of your music not repeating the word baby in a high pitched voice . Get over it

  • Ciara

    You guys need to stop being sore losers you all have a stick up your guys asses.maybe she deserved it better than that other guy who’s balls haven’t dropped . In fact while your at it get your balls dropped 2. Bye hoes

    • Tigerblood13

      yeah, i totaly agree just don’t get carried away with trolling….the last person who did that (justinhater101) got seriously chewed out!! you jb obsessies are no better then that troll when you get all pissed off and start freaking out. face it you don’t know the dude! how on earth would you even know if you liked him UNLESS you actually meet him! calm yerselves!………………….seriously.

  • TessaDanielle

    Perhaps, your arguments would be more relevant if you used proper spelling and grammar. Reading the incoherent postings of Bieber fans and haters, makes me cringe more than his repetitive pop songs. JB is not as talentless as say, Ke$ha, but he isn’t necessarily Grammy worthy. At least, not as of now. Eventually, most JB fans will mature and realize their obsession with a person they have never met is silly and creepy.
