Ariana Grande has reportedly pulled out of performing at the 2019 Grammy Awards ceremony after clashing with the show’s producers.
According to Variety, the 25-year-old American singer who is nominated in two major Grammy categories, including Best Pop Vocal Performance for “God is a Woman” and Best Pop Vocal Album for Sweetener won’t be performing and may not even attend the event which takes place on Sunday, 10 February.
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.
