Hey Bieber maniacs! We’re incredibly happy to announce that Justin Bieber — yes, the Biebz himself — will be getting the coveted Newcomer of the Year award at our very own Young Hollywood Awards!
The biggest, most incredibly mania-inducing teen star in the universe, Justin Bieber, is coming to HollywoodLife’s Young Hollywood Awards May 13 at the Wilshire Ebell Theater in LA. And we’ll be presenting him with the Newcomer of the Year award!
Less than two years ago, we had never even heard of Justin Bieber — but then he was discovered on YouTube, signed by Usher and made a sensation overnight! His first album,My World was released Nov. 17, 2009 and blew up the charts with seven songs on the Billboard Hot 100 List…marking the highest debut by a new artist of all time.
The 16-year-old singer quickly became the obsession of teen girls around the world and even caused a riot at a mall while promoting his first album. “Bieber Fever” spread everywhere and Justin was asked to perform for President Barack Obama and his First Lady at the White House for the Christmas in Washington concert Dec. 20, 2009. Justin’s first full studio album, My World 2.0, includes the hit single ‘Baby‘ and debuted number one on the U.S. Billboard 200 March 23, 2010.
