Ariana Grande has reportedly pulled out of performing at the 2019 Grammy Awards due to a disagreement with the show’s producers.
According to Variety, the 25-year-old American singer won’t be performing and may not even attend the event which takes place on Sunday, 10 February.
Grande is nominated for Best Pop Vocal Performance (for “God Is a Woman”) and Best Pop Vocal Album (for 2018’s “Sweetener”).
Sources said Grande may not even attend the ceremony after she felt “insulted” by producers, who initially refused to allow her to perform her new single “7 Rings” from the upcoming album Thank U, Next.
After coming to a compromise, allowing Grande to perform the single as part of a medley, the 25-year-old cancelled completely as producers wanted to choose the second song she would play, one of the insiders added.
One source also claimed that stipulations were not placed on other performers at the show.
