Justin Bieber was disappointed that he couldn't make it to Sunday's 2010 BET Awards, where he was nominated for Best New Artist. He was on the road for his just-launched My World headlining tour, he explained on Twitter, and never considered cancelling or postponing the show.
"Rolled into Milwaukee for the show today...gonna be huge...22,000 people sold out. I heard. Missing everybody out in LA for the BET Awards," he tweeted on Sunday. "Just wanted to say I would have been at the awards, but this show was booked before the nominees came out, and I don't cancelar shows.
"I would never cancelar a show and let down the fãs unless I had to ... but I do wish I was there too, because I am honored to just be nominated," he added. Though he lost the Best New Artist prize to Queens MC Nicki Minaj, the teen singer found the nomination enough of an honor. "But I do wish I was there too, because I am honored to just be nominated but just goes to show that música is COLOR BLIND!! It is the universal language, and good música brings us all together ... the way it should be." Bieber added a message to his friends who were at the Shrine Auditorium. "Everyone out there best of luck... Shout-out to my big bro @usherraymondiv performing 2nite!"
