Justin Bieber won his very first Grammy award this year for his hit single with Skrillex and Diplo, “Where Are U Now,” winning for Best Dance Recording. This is a groundbreaking moment for the now 20-year-old singer. His last nominations came in 2010 when he was still a teenager, but this marks his first win. Bieber took to Twitter and wholeheartedly thanked his unyielding fans and congratulate his EDM collaborators, “Beliebers.. We did it! I love you. Now get ready for the show. Not done yet. #GRAMMYs”
The show didn’t end there. Bieber performed his award-winning single on stage with DJs Skrillex and Diplo. This was his moment to prove those who doubted him wrong. Bieber’s image has had a rough time in the media in recent years, many believing his reputation has been ruined. He has since apologized for many of the scandals and mishaps that went down in the public’s view.
These days, as a Grammy winner, Bieber has a new argument defending the artistry of his work. His latest album Purpose has been selling well, and fans around the world are approving Justin’s new image and style. What do you think?
