    Great to see Jess nominated again, hopefully she can snag an unlikely win from Sia.

    Justin Bieber for Best International Artist really?! Give me 5 reasons why he deserves such a nomination, and one of those reasons must NOT be “he has an insanely dedicated fanbase.” That’s not a reason why someone deserves an award.

    I don’t know if I have an answer for this, after his 2013 visit to Australia where he had some troubles it’s hard to think he would be embraced again by Australia.

    However in the past year Justin’s album “Purpose” claimed number one spot on the ARIA album chart, “What Do You Mean” spent 4 weeks at number one on the singles chart, “Love Yourself” spent 7 weeks at number one on the singles chart and “Cold Water” reached number one for two consecutive weeks on the singles charts.

    So I guess he was recognised for his success on the single and album charts. I really don’t think he will win though.
