Justin Bieber, perhaps as a response to being snubbed with no Grammy nominations this year, announced he’d hold a Livestream performance at exactly the same 8:00 p.m. time slot that the awards ceremony were set to start in Los Angeles last night. But technology was not on Justin’s side, as things went wrong right from the start. The site apparently became overcrowded, not letting the singer in. “Livestream is over capacity it not letting me in the room give me a second lol”, Bieber tweeted, before eventually ditching the effort altogether and going in another direction.
On Saturday, Justin tweeted, “I'm gonna do an hour live video stream tomorrow at 8 est I'm gonna play some new music and answer questions send this to ur friend :)”, according to E! News.
After several unsuccessful attempts at the live Webcast for his fans to share new music and respond to questions, the 18 year-old pop star shared on Instagram that he’d, “never been so frustrated”, and said he’d upload a new song to Twitter to appease them.
Contactmusic reports Justin wrote, “Since nothing is working and I'm super upset I feel I gotta make it up to u”, later adding, “I should post a new song on twitter so you can still be excited”.
They claim the planned online chat session was part of Bieber’s “master-plan” to keep his fans from tuning into the Grammy Awards broadcast Sunday night. Even though tech savvy Justin has hosted events online such as these in the past, it just didn’t go right last night.
To make up for the live-chat online fiasco, Justin posted his new song “You Want Me” on SoundCloud, along with a shirtless two-minute video of himself, as reported by AceShowbiz today.
Half-naked Bieber was wearing a backwards cap in what looked like a home theater set-up in the uploaded video. He explained he was on vacation and didn’t have access to a reliable internet connection.
