OK Bieber Haters, bring it on.
But the Best New Artist Grammy winner is pretty damn awesome. Esperanaza Spalding (who?) deserved her award, fair and square.
I should point out that not only can the girl sing, she can play a mean bass, and has mad grooves. (That's official jazz-speak, folks.) If you don't know much about music, you should know that it is very very hard to play bass and sing at the same time. Just ask Sting.
So, yes Justin Bieber may be a great New Artist. But in the year of our Lord, two thousand eleven, someone else is better. Much better.
