Ariana Grande To No Longer Attend The Grammys - Here’s Why!

Ariana Grande To No Longer Attend The Grammys - Here’s Why!

Ariana Grande won't be attending or performing at the 2019 Grammys anymore.

According to a source who spoke with Hits Daily Double, the star apparently felt "insulted" after the Grammys production team disallowed her to sing her trap-inspired single "7 Rings" at the upcoming function.

The decision comes after Ariana was snubbed in all of the major categories, receiving only nominations for best pop vocal performance for God Is a Woman and best pop vocal album for Sweetener.

A Grande no-show isn't exactly good business for the Grammys as she's now the reigning queen of the Billboard charts with the number one song in the country, "7 Rings" with "thank u, next" trailing not too far behind. However, they reportedly wanted to choose the second song in the medley, which led to Grande pulling out of her performance. The Grammys did not immediately respond for comment on whether Grande would be performing Sunday.

Grammy producers faced a similar situation with Lorde before last year's ceremony, when they wouldn't let her perform a song from her album Melodrama, which was up for Album of the Year.

Variety has reported that the Grammys have lost out on having one of the most popular artists today perform at their show after a disagreement.

7 Rings was played a record 15 million times in its first 24 hours on the music streaming service Spotify.

It's believed the other performers were not treated in the same way. Instead, producers reportedly offered the New Zealand singer a spot in a Tom Petty tribute, which she declined.

One South Florida pop singer won't be at the 61st Grammy Awards show Sunday.
