The source added that other scheduled performers did not receive the same stipulations.

Ariana Grande has reportedly turned down the chance to perform at the GRAMMYs, following a dispute with producers of the show.

The insider said that Grande was "insulted" after producers refused to let her perform the song, though they later relented and said she could sing it as part of a medley.

According to Variety, the 25-year-old American singer won't be performing and may not even attend the event which takes place on Sunday, 10 February.

As Billboard pointed out in a separate article, the album's success was "a rare new peak for a late-'10s pop star" and was especially significant "because not many of her pop star peers are doing so alongside her".

As far as the match is concerned, India won it by 35 runs, with Ambati Rayudu and Yuzvendra Chahal playing an important role. Although they pulled one back, skipper Kane Williamson will be disappointed with his side's performance in the ODI series .

Grande has already released two singles from her upcoming album Thank U, Next, the title track and 7 Rings, which has already shattered records. We all know how rigged these award ceremonies are so since she now has major beef with the powers that be, it's doubtful that she'll be taking out any awards but good on her for refusing to bow down to their bullying antics.

At this time, however, the Recording Academy and Ariana are yet to confirm the news, so there is still a chance it's just a fake rumor and that fans will be able to see the singer at the awards show on Sunday after all!

Other acts set to perform at this year's Grammys include Katy Perry, Miley Cyrus, Cardi B, Diana Ross, Shawn Mendes and Camila Cabello.

After releasing her fifth studio album, "thank u, next", Ariana Grande was reportedly supposed to perform at the 2019 GRAMMYs.
