Justin Bieber is heading back to the GRAMMYs!

It's been five years since the Biebs was last nominated for music's top honor, when he famously lost the Best New Artist award to Esperanza Spalding. His debut full-length, My World 2.0, was also nominated for Best Pop Vocal Album, but was beat by Lady Gaga's The Fame Monster.

On Monday, Bieber scored his third career GRAMMY nomination in the Best Dance Recording category for "Where Are U Now," his collaboration with EDM superstars Diplo and Skrillex.

NEWS: Justin Bieber Officially Tops One Direction With No. 1 Album

Bieber shared his excitement over the nom on his Facebook page, congratulating his collaborators. "Grammy time boys. Congrats," he wrote.

But it wasn't all great news for JB on Monday. His critically acclaimed -- and first No. 1 -- single, "What Do You Mean?" was snubbed. That being said, his latest album, Purpose, and any future singles from it, will be in contention for the 2017 ceremony. (The eligibility period runs from Oct. 1 to Sept. 30 each year.)

WATCH: Justin Bieber Dishes on His Most Personal Album Yet

Last month, Bieber opened up to Entertainment Tonight special correspondent Elvis Duran about what it would take for him to finally get his hands on that elusive gramophone.

"I think it just takes making good music," he said. "I think the rest goes to how much the GRAMMY board likes you."

"Hopefully they just like me," he continued, modestly. "I don't know. That's all I can really ask for."

Bieber admitted that winning a GRAMMY was among his top five career aspirations, along with "Some sort of Hall of Fame. Like Rock and Roll Hall of Fame would be pretty crazy," he said. "I'm not even a rock and roll artist."

Will he cross one off the bucket list next year? The GRAMMY winners will be revealed on Monday, Feb. 15, in Los Angeles.
