Simon Cowell

Justin Bieber
 deserved at least ONE Grammy nomination this year for his hard work ... but no ... he got shafted by the uppity snobs at the Recording Academy -- so says Simon Cowell.

Simon was out in L.A. Thursday night -- for the launch of his new X Headphones -- when we asked about Bieber's Grammy snub. He told us, "You know what? He deserved one [nomination], I think. But they can get a bit snobby sometimes."

But Simon's not worried about the Biebs, adding, "He won't be crying too much. He's doing fine."

You can say that again.

He doesn't deserve a grammy nomination. He deserves a moon man nomination; which he will get plenty of.

I keep hearing his songs on the game song pop, and every time I think it's a woman singing. Don't care much for this kid.

Just because retarded girls and gay dudes buy his music, doesn't mean he deserves a Grammy nomination...$ales don't guarantee talent.

Justin had 1 decent song years ago. That baby baby baby crap every child loved. Otherwise i havent heard a hit song from him since. He is washed up and ive never seen anyone's popularity remain so stable when the music they put out sucks. People buy into his brand not him. Im happy he didnt get nominated he doesnt deserve it.

He only wins awards when it's left up to little girls with cell phones & multiple twitter accounts.

Cowell may know what sells but he wouldn't know quality music if it kicked him in his big, square head.
