Ariana Grande Pulls Out of Grammys Performance: Variety

Pop singer Ariana Grande will not be performing at the Grammy Awards in Los Angeles on Feb. 10 due to a disagreement with producers over which songs would be performed, Variety reports. The singer is said to have felt “insulted” after those organizing the show refused to permit her to perform “7 Rings,” the latest single on her upcoming album, Thank U, Next, according to a source cited in the report. Grande had reached a compromise with producers in which the song would fold into a medley—but the artist reportedly pulled out after they demanded they be allowed to choose the second song. Grande has previously been nominated for two Grammys, one for Dangerous Woman for Best Pop Vocal Album and the title track for Best Pop Solo Performance. Thank U, Next is slated to come out Feb. 8.
