Justin Bieber Was NOT Invited by Grammys, Usher Unaware!

Usher says he thought it was “crazy” that Justin Bieber was not invited to Grammy Awards ceremony. In fact, he did not know about the slight.

Usher tells Zap2It:

“For whatever reason that he wasn’t, I think that would be crazy to not be invited. If he was not invited, he wouldn’t be the first.”

Plus, he adds that maybe he was invited and had “other priorities at the same time.” Although this seems unlikely since Justin attempted to counter-program the Grammys with a livestream for the beliebers.

Usher admits he doesn’t know:

“I don’t know you could assume that was strategic, to make a statement. I don’t know.”

Usher himself did not attend this year’s awards due to a function at his son’s school, but he did take the stage perform the night before at Clive Davis’ annual pre-Grammy party.

    • kahani

      WOW, I WONDER WHY JUSTIN WASN’T INVITED TO THE GRAMMY. I BET USHER WAS INVITED TO THE GRAMMY. SINCE MOST OF HIS SONGS WERE AT NUMBER ONE. I DO LOVE MOST OF HIS SONGS. USHER IS TALENTED AND AMAZING GUY TO JUSTIN AND OF COURSE HIS MENTOR.

    • Mel Bieber

  • JOSH

    • kahani

      SERIOUSLY JUSTIN CAN SING AND HE’S VERY TALENTED. JUSTIN IS THE SHIT. HE OF COURSE IS SUCH AMAZING IDOL AND WELL THE GRAMMY WELL ARE RETARDED NOT TO HAVE JUSTIN AT THE GRAMMYS. I SO LOVE JUSTIN. HATERS HAVE NO LIVES OF THERE OWN.

      • adrian

        Wow, calm down! “Retarded”? How old are you? Eight?

      • kahani

        WOW, SERIOUSLY, I KNOW WHO DOES THAT. JUST HOPE FOR NEXT YEAR JUSTIN GETS INVITED FOR THE GRAMMYS AND HIM AND SELENA ARE TOGETHER AND THERE NOT DATING OTHER PEOPLE.

  • JaylaBieber

    Of course the assholes didn’t invite him. .-.

  • Sarah Bieber

    I don’t get it why didn’t he get nominated? i mean no offense but even Carly got nominated then why wasnt justin? Maybe it’s because they think he’s too young. Or speaking optimistically, maybe they didn’t want him to get so full of himself so they kinda on’t want to give him such a prestigious award.

  • ALEKSANDER

    PROMOTERS OF THE GRAMMY ARE SCOUNDRELS !!!

  • OMB!

    WTF!?

    • kahani

      WOW, THATS JUST CRAZY THAT USHER WAS AWARE THAT JUSTIN WASN’T INVITED TO THE GRAMMYS. I JUST HOPE USHER CAN CONVINCE THEM TO INVITE JUSTIN TO THE GRAMMY. SINCE JUSTIN WORKS SO HARD AND DESERVES A GRAMMY, HIS MUSIC IS VERY INSPIRING AND HIS FANS LOVE AND ADORE HIM SO MUCH. I OF COURSE SO LOVE JUSTIN.

  • woah

    I think he was invited, just wasnt nominated.

    • kahani

      THAT COULD BE ALSO TRUE. I’M SURE JUSTIN WASN’T NOMINATED EITHER. USHER MUST BE AMAZING MENTOR TO JUSTIN, AND A AMAZING BIG BROTHER TO JUSTIN. SINCE JUSTIN NEEDS A OLDER BROTHER TO LOOK UP TO. BESIDES SCOOTER HE HAS AS A MANGAER. BUT HE ALSO HAS ALFREDO WHO IS ALSO FRIENDS WITH SELENA. HER AND ALFREDO ARE VERY CLOSE FRIENDS,

  • Real Alisha

    i really hate them
    i hate everything to which justin don,t like i hate it
    really but i love u juju i love uuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuu

  • ivan

    At least one of the Judges nominating for pop did not like Justin. Also, they did have 10 million less viewers than previous year although they blame it on Whitney Houston tribute in 2013. Could it really have been a backlash for snubbing Bieber and One Direction? I think so!

  • Xavier Jackson

    2013 was the worst Grammys ever without my boy @Justinbieber next years Grammys will be better with Justin bieber on there I #Believe he will be on there

  • essie j

    NO bieber NO grammys

  • ivan

    The Grammys are like the Academy Awards, they don’t always choose the right one that should win-this is subjective however. By the way, they have a fanbase award like the People’s choice and neither Justin nor Scooter has mentioned it. The Wanted are leading both Bieber and One Direction-smell something wrong? You could google the page

  • ALYSSA

    welll he was most deff snubbed by the grammies.

    biebs is an amazing artist and an amazing performer..

    idfk how those ppl ddnt invite him.. if i was them, biebs wud’ve been on the top pf the invite list.. lmao

    #NextYear <3

  • daughterofLordRauhl

    Usher’s the only one that’s said something that made sense so far. He’s right, it is crazy. This year’s Grammy’s views dropped, there’s a reason for it. I believe that it has something to do with One Direction and Justin not being nominated. Of course they’ll try to say it was because of the Whitney Houston tribute. But I think it’s more of a protest. They really need to get people who are focused on the music and are neutral towards artists, because the reason he didn’t get nominated was that at least one of the people at the Recording Academy or whatever the hell it’s called didn’t like him. That shouldn’t have anything to do with the nominating. But screw it. There’s still quite a bit of time that Justin has.

  • iroJB

    so cute
    <3

  • ivan

    Too bad his Livestream screwed up otherwise he could have had a million viewers and showed up the grammy heads as a bunch of elitist snubs who look down on artists like him. They would have done the same to Frankie Avalon, Fabien, Lief Garrett, Donnie Osmond, the gorgeous Annette Funicello of the old Mikey Mouse Club and others who were top idols in the old days.

    • kahani

      I LOVE JUSTIN AND USHER. IM GUESSING USHER HAS ALWAYS BEEN THERE FOR JUSTIN. SINCE USHER IS JUSTIN’S MENTOR AND SORTA OF LIKE A OLDER BROTHER TO JUSTIN. I JUST HOPE USHER CAN KEEP JUSTIN IN THE RIGHT PATH AND DOESN’T DO ANYTHING STUPID. I HOPE USHER TALKS TO JUSTIN ABOUT HIS LOVE LIFE AND STAYING GROUNDED AND HUMBLE. I HOPE AND GUESSING USHER WILL ALWAYS TO BE THERE FOR JUSTIN. THAT HE KEEPS HIM GROUNDED.

  • heart6

    Justin Bieber….. youngest person with 5 #1 albums…….. was not invited to grammys? okay i just lost all my respect for GrammyAwards

    • kahani

      I DONT THINK USHER WAS AWARE THAT JUSTIN WAS NOMINATED FOR A GRAMMY. I SO LOVE JUSTIN. HES AMAZING PEFROMER RECORDING ARTIST.

      • Belieber 4 LIFEEEE

        is yr caps lock brocken??

      • kahani

        NO, I JUST LIKE TYPING IN CAP LOCKS. I LOVE HOW JUSTIN IS SO GROUNDED AND IS SUCH A HOTTIE.

  • sup

    you know what i have Enough with the grammy drama justin is so amazing with a grammy or not for me he is he is the king kong with a grammy or not i know that justin is amazing and that all

    justin your perfct

  • oxBelieberxo

    That’s rude to not invite Justin, but that was very sweet of him to choose to video chat with his belieber.

  • Nikki

    Not to be rude but Justin really isn’t an artist he sings and dances yes but hes not an artist he doesn’t have a creative output on his image his team comes up with all his ideas and his image and yes he writes his own songs but not all of them

  • mamen

    jB Stay cool

  • Belieber 4 LIFEEEE

    this was the one time i didnt watch it coz justin wasn’t in it omg sfu grammy’s poor justin

  • ivan

    An artist is a professional performer and that is exactly was Justin is. If you go to his Believe concert you will see what a pro he is at the age of 18. He has been highly praised for his performance in this concert by many reviewers. Of course haters would never give him credit for anything. But who gives a crap what you haters think, you don’t pay his rent.

    • Nikki

      An Artist is a professional performer but thats not all a artist example: Lady gaga shes an artist writes her own songs like justin but unlike justin is very more hands on with her image

  • ivan

    He does not have a clone sing and dance for him on stage-he does a great job doing that as Lady Gaga does. An image is nothing without the performer to show it. The fact is Justin is a great performer as Gaga is. Why continue to find excuses to demean him? If you don’t like him go elsewhere as i would do. There is a long list of music people who think highly of him in spite of the fact he has jealous haters. As Simon Cal said: Don’t understimate him, he’s very smart-you could google that.

  • Nikki

    I am not saying i think down on him i like him alot and gaga does not have a clone sing or dance for her on stage she sings and dances her heart out even when she injury like what happened in Montreal the thing i meant is that he does deserve a Grammy but he not now maybe down the line like for his next album

  • ad bielieber 4 ever

    i think that usher might have been right mabey he didnt know an djb came anyway next year will be way better

  • ivan

    Nikki[Minaj?] That’s resonable. I also thing Gaga is a great performer. Would love to see both together in a show. take care.

    • Nikki

      No my name is spelled with to k’s while hers is spell like this Nicki

  • prettygirl

    i am so better then all of you bitches
