The boy band was at a loss for words about their first Grammy nomination. As the group tweeted, "Ohmmmmmmyyyyyyyyggghghhhhhhhgggggggggdhdhsjsixudbslsogbdsisgshdbxidjdbdidhdifjfiri."
"Wait, what??" the famed Jeopardy! winner tweeted in reaction to his first-ever nomination in the Best Spoken Word Album category. "This should 100% be Alex [Trebek]'s Grammy nomination. He wrote the book and reads much of the audiobook! Who do I speak to about this."
After being nominated in the Best Pop Duo/Group Performance, Best Pop Vocal Album and Best Pop Solo Performance categories, Bieber spoke out about why he felt he was recognized in the wrong categories. "To the Grammys I am flattered to be acknowledged and appreciated for my artistry," he wrote in a note posted to Instagram. "I am very meticulous and intentional about my music. With that being said I set out to make an R&B album. Changes was and is an R&B album. It is not being acknowledged as an R&B album which is very strange to me. I grew up admiring R&B music and wished to make a project that would embody that sound. For this not to be put into that category feels weird considering from the chords to the melodies to the vocal style all the way down to the hip hop drums that were chosen it is undeniably, unmistakably an R&B Album! To be clear I absolutely love Pop music it just wasn't what I set out to make this time around. My gratitude for feeling respected for my work remains and I am honored to be nominated either way."
