Ariana Grande had been slated to perform for the 61st Annual Grammy Awards on February 20, 2019. However, due to a disagreement over song choice, Grande will no longer perform nor attend the Grammys this year.
The famous pop singer has been all over billboards and commercials promoting the awards show. However, Grande pulled out when show producer’s refused for her to sing her latest single ‘7 rings’. They had attempted to reach a compromise by having Grande perform a medley of her songs that would include some of ‘7 Rings’.
However, the show producers preferred that she would perform a different song. Grande put her foot down on the matter and dropped out of the performance altogether.
It is not shocking that Grande would put her foot down on the matter. This comes after many fans believed the pop singer to have been snubbed in major categories for the awards show. Though Grande has had a fantastic previous year for her career she had only received nominations for best pop vocal performance for God Is a Woman and best pop vocal album for Sweetener.
Ariana Grande has been living her best life, and her career has been thriving. Though she has hit many ups and downs, her newest album is set to release on February 8, 2019. The two singles that released earlier, ‘Thank u, next’ and ‘7 Rings’ have broken many records and her latest album Thank U, Next is expected to do the same.
Though Grande has pulled out of the Grammys, other artists are still slated to perform. Audiences will get to see Lady Gaga perform the song ‘Shallows’ from the hit movie A Star Is Born. Fans will also be treated to musical performances by Shawn Mendes, Camila Cabello, Cardi B, Miley Cyrus, Post Malone, Janelle Monáe, Diana Ross, and more. Though this pop princess won’t grace the Grammys stage, we still have a lot of performances that will blow us away.
