Justin Bieber can not catch a break. During last night's (March 30) Juno Awards, the pop star received audible boos when his name was called as the Juno Fan choice winner. The 2014 Sochi gold medalists in women’s curling were on hand to reveal the results, and it was clearly uncomfortable for them onstage, inside Winnipeg's MTS Centre.

Later on, when rocker Ryder won Songwriter of the Year, she used her acceptance speech to defend the Biebs. “I really think that Justin Bieber is an amazing musician and he deserves every bit of that award,” she said to the crowd. “He’s been working his ass off his entire life and we need to support how awesome he is."

She added, "I’m not just trying to kiss ass. He’s amazing."

Indie-pop duo Tegan & Sara, who won for Single of the Year, also came to Bieber's rescue backstage afterwards. “I think that Justin Bieber is actually a very talented artist and I think a lot of people just like to pile on and sort of make fun of him, but we have to remember that he has a mom and a dad and a grandma and a grandpa and he’s actually really talented," said Tegan Quin to reporters.

"He’s been famous since he was a little kid. He’s made some mistakes, but God knows Sara and I have made actually way worse mistakes when we were teenagers and we weren’t famous."

On the win itself, Bieber posted on Facebook, thanking his loyal fans, "We won #JUNOFanChoice for the 4th year in a row! Love to all my beliebers. Thank u. Love u."

This isn't the first time Bieber has been booed on live television. At the 2013 Billboard Music Awards, the singer walked away with the first-ever Milestone Award, and the arena chimed together with epic boos. Upon accepting his honor, from Cee Lo Green, he said in his speech, "This is not a gimmick. I'm an artist and I should be taken seriously.”
