Justin Bieber had zero Grammy nominations this year, but that didn’t stop him from trying to get the attention of his Beliebers on Sunday. 

Hours before he hosted Saturday Night Live, Bieber announced on Twitter that he would be starting a live video stream the moment the Grammys started, in what looked like a way to draw his fan base away from the award show that snubbed him.
I’m gonna do an hour live video stream tomorrow at 8 est I’m gonna play some new music and answer questions send this to ur friend :)Justin Bieber
He hyped it up.

People were tweeting that Bieber appeared on Ustream very briefly, shirtless and lying in bed.

Seconds later, the site crashed again.
