Ariana Grande Pulls Out Of Grammy Awards 2019 Performance
7 February 2019
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.
