KEY POINTS

  • Justin Bieber chose date night over the Grammys this year, a report says
  • The singer and his wife Hailey Bieber reportedly had dinner at Sant'olina in Beverly Hills Sunday
  • He won the Grammy for best country duo/group performance for his "10,000 Hours" collaboration with Dan+ Shay

Justin Bieber was one of the 2021 Grammy winners on Sunday, but he was a no-show as he was tied up with a "date night" with wife Hailey Bieber.

"Justin and Hailey Bieber had dinner at Sant'olina in Beverly Hills. They walked in at around 7 p.m. and were linking arms sweetly," an unnamed source told Entertainment Tonight.

"They sat down at a six-person table, but had the table to themselves and sat next to each other on the same side of the table. They were facing outward toward the other restaurant goers. They both looked great and happy. When they walked out to leave, they were linking arms again," the source added.

The pop star was nominated in four categories -- best pop solo performance for "Yummy," best pop duo/group performance for "Intentions," best pop vocal album for "Changes" and best country duo/group performance for his "10,000 Hours" collaboration with Dan+ Shay. He won the award in the country music category.

Soon after his Grammy win, Bieber posted a shot of himself on Instagram and captioned it, "Date night."

A few days prior to the awards ceremony, Page Six had reported that the singer was not planning to attend the 2021 Grammys because he was not performing at this year’s show.

Fans may also recall that when nominees were announced in November, Bieber called out the Recording Academy for nominating his album “Changes” in the pop category instead of R&B.

“I am flattered to be acknowledged and appreciated for my artistry. I am very meticulous and intentional about my music. With that being said, I set out to make an R&B album,” he wrote on Instagram.

"'Changes’ was and is an R&B album. It is not being acknowledged as an R&B album, which is very strange to me," he added.

The Canadian singer said the Recording Academy’s “weird” decision was a disappointment as it was his dream to "make a project that would embody that sound."

"For this not to be put into that category feels weird, considering from the chords to the melodies to the vocal style, all the way down to the hip-hop drums that were chosen, it is undeniably, unmistakably an R&B album!" he added.

Nevertheless, Bieber said he was grateful for the recognition and thanked those who "fought for me to even have any noms."
