  • Ariana Grande Reportedly Withdraws From Grammys After Disagreement Over Song Choices

Ariana Grande has reportedly pulled out of performing at the Grammy awards following a dispute with producers.

Grande is still, however, a dual nominee with nods for Best Pop Vocal Performance for the sultry banger "God Is a Woman" and Best Pop Vocal Album for "Sweetener", which she dropped in the summer of 2018. After some deliberation, Grande and the producers came to some kind of agreement, which allowed her to perform "7 Rings" in a medley of songs, but the situation reached an impasse when the Grammy's insisting upon choosing the 2nd song in her medley.

Representatives for the Recording Academy and Grande did not immediately respond to HuffPost's request for comment. To top it all off, Grande has chosen not to attend the gala as a front-row guest, notwithstanding her omission as a performer. Instead, producers reportedly offered the New Zealand singer a spot in a Tom Petty tribute, which she declined.

Grande has already released two singles from her upcoming album Thank U, Next, the title track and 7 Rings, which has already shattered records.
