Justin Bieber Wins First-Ever Grammy for 'Where Are Ü Now'
Bieber was last nominated for his album My World 2.0
Calling all Beliebers: your fearless leader is officially a Grammy winner.
The trio nabbed the Grammy for Best Dance Recording during the pre-show. Diplo and Skrillex also won the trophy for the Best Dance/Electronic album for Skrillex And Diplo Present Jack Ü.
Bieber took to social media to share his excitement over the win, thanking the Recording Academy and fans and congratulating his EDM collaborators Diplo and Skrillex.
Bieber, 21, is set to perform the track during the show with both DJs – his first awards show performance after crying onstage during the August VMAs.
The star’s album Purpose just missed the deadline for eligibility at this year’s awards, and his single “What Do You Mean?” was passed over in the Record of the Year, Song of the Year and Best Pop Solo Performance categories.
He was last nominated as a teenager for 2010 album My World 2.0, but fell to Esperanza Spalding for Best New Artist and Lady Gaga for Best Pop Vocal Album.
