Bieber isn't attending because he has a show planned in Milwaukee tonight. He tweeted, " 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 cancel shows. I would never cancel a show and let down the fans unless I had to...but I do wish i was there too, because I am honored to just be nominated. "
