Justin Bieber’s inaugural Grammy win was a dream come true…for the pop star and for his Beliebers.
The Canadian singer’s fans have been busily recirculating a tweet overnight which their hero had shared back in 2010. In it, Bieber wrote, “#2011 the dream…would be to win a grammy. that would be just amazing. a boy can dream right? #2011.”

Well, it’s five years on but the boy doesn’t have to dream any more. Bieber won his first Grammy Award Monday night for “Where Are Ü Now,” his 2015 single with Skrillex and Diplo. The song won the best dance recording category, beating out tracks by Flying Lotus, The Chemical Brothers, Galantis, and Above & Beyond. It was his third Grammy nomination.
Soon after his big win, Bieber returned to the stage to sing his No. 1 hit “Love Yourself” before teaming with Skrillex and Diplo for a performance of his newly-crowned Grammy-winning song.
