Ariana Grande not performing at The Grammys 2019

A source close to the situation told Variety that the pop star felt "insulted" when they refused to let her perform her hit single "7 Rings".

Ariana was all set to perform but then had a disagreement with the show's producers over which songs she would perform.

Variety reported yesterday that Grande has pulled out from both performing and attending the event this weekend, February 10.

With the Grammy Awards just a few days away, one of the music industry's biggest stars, Ariana Grande, is reportedly not performing, or even attending the ceremony.

Scheduled performers during the Grammys include Lady Gaga, Miley Cyrus, the Red Hot Chili Peppers, Brandi Carlile, H.E.R., Dan + Shay, Camila Cabello, Cardi B, Post Malone, Shawn Mendes and Janelle Monáe.

The report comes as a shock, since Ariana is a nominee for two honors at the 61st annual show: Best Pop Vocal Performance ("God Is a Woman") and Best Pop Vocal Album (Sweetener). In the past two years Grande has experienced two major tragedies - the 2017 bombing outside her concert at the UK's Manchester Arena in which 22 people died, and the drug-overdose death of her former boyfriend Mac Miller last September.

Ariana Grande could very well win her first Grammy on Sunday... but she won't be there to collect it!

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. Instead, producers reportedly offered the New Zealand singer a spot in a Tom Petty tribute, which she declined.
