Who Is Justin Bieber?
For those who have never heard of him, Justin Bieber looks like an average teenager from Stratford, Ontario, Canada. He has a unique look, but what sets him apart is his music. Since coming on the music scene in 2009, he has taken the world and many of the tweens and teen girls in the world, by storm.
This singer and songwriter is a talent like no other in recent times. His youthful age, all 15 years of it at the start of his mega star career, has been filled with opportunity and remarkable success. By all definitions of the world, he is a massive hit, performing for everyone from millions of adoring fans to the White House.
While some may try and write him off as "just another young boy band" there is much more to this unique young man. It is more than his unique hair style, which he has been known for since the start of his career. It isn't the skinny jeans he wears or the young sounding voice that makes such as impression either. Rather, it is in his personality, his drive for the highest quality and in his determination to go from a virtual nobody to the top of the music charts around the world.
The story of Justin Bieber starts in his much younger youth. It progresses through the years where well-known artists and incredible musicians themselves, discovered this young talent and helped him to become who he is today. But, his story continues. As a young star, he has years of music ahead of him and many professionals in the industry expect him to continue to produce some of the biggest, chart topping songs and albums in the years to come.
Justin is a singer. He is a talented songwriter. He released his first full length, 3D biopic concert film in 2011. He has created song after song that has hit the top ten charts and his movie's opening weekend was the biggest opening weekend of any concert style film ever. By the numbers, Bieber has already exceeded expectations and soared past the marks of most other young talents in history.

Justin Bieber’s First Album Shatters Records
Perhaps one of the most impressive things Justin Bieber did happened with his first album. The album was called My World. It was, as many anticipated, one of the best albums of the year when it was released.
Bieber's first album is one of the most impressive of all time. In fact, he became the first artist to ever have seven songs on a debut album actually hit the Billboard Hot 100 charts. This accomplishment helps to solidify whom he is and what he has to offer. It shows just how well loved he is.
Here's what you need to know about what this album accomplished:
- The album peaked at number five on the United States Billboard 200.
- The album sold 137,000 copies in its first week on shelves. At this time, it was the best opening released for any new artist in the year 2009.
- The album hit number one on the Canadian Albums Chart.
- In Canada, the album received the Platinum certification in just over a month of it debuting on the Canadian Albums Chart.
- A month after its release, the album was certified Gold in the United States.
- Two months after that gold (just three months after its debut) the album was certified platinum in the United States.
- My World sold a total of one million copies within just a few months of its release.
- In the United Kingdom, the album took just about a month for it to receive silver certification. In December 2010, it also received double platinum certification.
All of this occurred within the span of just a year. Most artists hope to receive any level of certification within their lifetime for the album, but Justin Bieber reached the height of population just a few months into the release of the album.
Justin Bieber's American Music Awards
Another impressive aspect of Justin Bieber's career is his remarkable, and truly amazing, ability to win various awards. One of the most spectacular examples of this is the 2010 American Music Awards. In this awards event, Justin managed to walk away with three total awards to his name himself, plus an award for his My World 2.0 album.
Here's a look at what Justin won at this event alone:
- He won the Artist of the Year award.
- Justin walked away with the Favorite Pop/Rock Male Artist Award.
- Justin won the T-Mobile Breakthrough Artist Award
- Justin also won the Favorite Pop/Rock Album for the year.
Compared to other winners of the 2010 American Music Awards, Justin Bieber won the most awards for the year.
In addition to this, Justin broke the record and became the youngest person ever to win the award for Artist of the Year.
Teen Choice awards
Justin's biggest fan base is the teenagers and this was incredibly clear at the 2010 Teen Music Awards. This awards event is one dictated by teens who vote for their favorite stars of the year. It is similar to an adult version of the People's Choice Awards, but the focus is on the kids and Justin was able to come out on top, again.
Take a look at the amazing job he did cleaning up at this awards event!
- Justin won the Teen Choice Award for Choice Music: Male Artist.
- Justin won the Teen Choice Award for Choice Music: Breakout Artist Male
- He won the Teen Choice Award for Choice Summer Music Star: Male.
- He was nominated as the Choice Fanatic Fans award at the Teen Choice Awards as well, though he did not win this particular award.
- My World 2.0 was also a popular choice at the Teen Choice Awards where it one the Choice Music: Pop Album award for the year.
The Teen Choice Awards was one of the best events for Justin, where he was able to beat out some of today's top performing artists with a much longer history. This is a testament to his skill and ability to woo fans.
More Justin Bieber awards
Over the span of a few months, Justin Bieber won numerous additional awards, all of which are impressive examples of what a true artist he is.

- At the Juno Awards, the My World 2.0 album was nominated for Album of the Year and Pop Album of the Year.

- At the TRL Awards it was another big event for Justin where we won the Best International Act award.
- At the World Music Awards, Justin was able to secure nominations for the Best Pop Act and the Best New Artist awards. These are very prestigious awards since they focus on many additional artists than the country-specific awards.
- At the Young Hollywood Awards in 2010, Justin was able to win the Newcomer of the Year award.
- At the Brit Awards, Justin walked away with the International Breakthrough Artist award.
At the 2011 Grammy Awards, Justin was nominated for Best New Artist and Best Pop Vocal Album for My World 2.0. He lost both of these to other artists, to the outcry of his fans who believed he should have easily won at least the Best New Artist award.
At the People's Choice Awards right after, Justin was again nominated for the Favorite Breakout Artist and the Favorite Music Video for "Baby" but did not win these awards either.
Justin is also nominated for two awards from the Nickelodeon Kids Choice Awards. At the time of this writing, these awards had yet to be announced. However, he is nominated for the Favorite Male Single and the Favorite Song awards. Keep in mind that this awards program is primarily a teen and kids voted program and thus it is likely Justin will walk away with these awards!
Each of the awards is incredibility important because they show just how well loved Justin is throughout the world. Some of these awards are less popular than others, but the sheer number of awards he has been nominated for, and won, in his first two years of having a career is remarkable in itself.
Justin Bieber World Tour sell Out
Another way to see the popularity of Justin Bieber is to consider his ability to sell concert tickets. This is definitely one of the biggest reasons that some artists do better than others: they can sell out crowds quickly. Justin did just that.
The day that tickets when on sale for two shows at The O2 Dublin sold out within just ten minutes of going on sale. The key here is that this was a 28,000 seat venue that Bieber sold out within just ten minutes. The sheer magnitude of how quickly those tickets sold is remarkable in itself!
In addition, tickets went on sale for a show in Melbourne and Sydney in Australia. Both of these shows sold out tickets within just minutes. In addition, the tour announced additional dates for these events. Again, with the new shows added, they sold out within minutes of becoming available.
Justin Bieber Movie
Yet another way in which Bieber has shown his ability to take the world by storm happened on the big screen. He did this in his biopic movie called Justin Bieber: Never Say Never. The movie released to screaming teenage girls and sold out at various movie venues throughout the world. Take a look at some of the numbers from this event that show just how big of a star Justin became.
- The Friday box office release of the concert film brought in estimations of some $2.4 million. It showed in 3105 theaters on this day.
- For the weekend, the movie made $29,514,054. This was not the highest grossing show or movie of the weekend.
- The movie did nearly match the amount of the Miley Cyrus's 3D concert film, though, which still is the top earning thus far (the Justin Bieber numbers are close to Miley Cyrus's numbers, and it is still playing at the time of this writing.) The Miley Cyrus film grossed $31.1 million.
As you can see from all of these records, Justin Bieber is a huge star and he continues to grow at record pace. The fact is he is just in his infancy when it comes to his music career and he has plenty more to offer the world as he gets older.
