While Justin Bieber was busy performing at the 2016 iHeartRadio Music Awards, he was also missing out on his two wins at the 45th Annual JUNO Awards. Since the JUNO Awards act as Canada’s celebration of music to recognize its country’s talent, the audience didn’t seem happy with Canadian-born Justin’s priorities.
Upon winning “Pop Album of the Year” and “Fan Choice,” Justin received boos for not being in attendance. His pre-recorded acceptance speech seemed to trigger the crowd’s reaction, since it was a short clip during which Justin spent more time in a boxing match than thanking his supporters.
For Justin, being booed at the JUNO Awards appears to be a longstanding tradition. A similar incident occurred at the 2014 JUNO Awards when Justin wasn’t there to accept his “Fan Choice” award.
Check out the video of Justin’s acceptance speech and the crowd’s reaction below.
Do you think Justin deserved to be booed?
