Ariana Grande Refuses To Perform And Attend GRAMMYs After Disagreement With Producers

Ariana Grande Refuses To Perform And Attend GRAMMYs After Disagreement With Producers

The prestigious music event, kicking off this Sunday (February 10), will be minus one pop star due to a reported disagreement between Grande and the ceremony's producer about which song she could perform, Variety has learned.

Lady Gaga is expected to perform at the ceremony, where her hit song Shallow, from the film A Star Is Born, is up for record and song of the year, best pop duo / group performance with Mark Ronson and best song written for visual media.

After releasing her fifth studio album, "thank u, next", Ariana Grande was reportedly supposed to perform at the 2019 GRAMMYs.

"Sweetener" and the songs "Thank U, Next" and "7 Rings" all smashed Spotify records, with "7 Rings" breaking the streaming service's record for most plays within a 24-hour period with almost 15 million.

It's believed the other performers were not treated in the same way.

He is back at his home in England, but confirmed that AAIB divers are now on the site, trying to establish what to do next. The wreckage of the missing aircraft carrying soccer player Emiliano Sala is seen on the seabed near Guernsey.

A similar thing happened with Lorde at last year's ceremony, with bosses reportedly refusing to let her perform a song from her Melodrama album.

However she went on to organise a triumphant return shown in Manchester and released her biggest album ever with Sweetener doing over 1.2 million in total activity and over 1.14 billion streams.

Variety says they instead, 'offered her a spot during the show's Tom Petty tribute'.

With this development, the Grammys find themselves not only without a twice-nominated artist whom they have been using to promote the show, but also without one of the most vital artists of the moment.
