Ariana Grande will take center stage at this year’s Grammy Awards after pulling out from her supposed performance at last year’s Grammy Awards.
The announcement was made by the singer-composer via social media last January 11th, Saturday on Twitter. She tweeted that she was excited and how special the opportunity meant to her. The Grammys has yet to make an official announcement, but it is almost certain that some of the other performers will be making their announcements as well following this.
Ariana’s fans had been ecstatic over the news and have gathered on her Twitter to show their support and appreciation for their idol.
The pop star won her first Grammy last year for Best Pop Album and is again nominated for a good amount of the awards being dished out that night including Album of the Year, Best Pop Performance of the Year among others.
The 26-year-old pop star was supposed to perform at last year’s Grammy Awards but ultimately pulled out after being told that she wasn’t allowed to perform ‘7 Rings’ which is in contention for Record of the Year 2020 award this year.
Variety reported that Ariana was very disappointed by the producers’ decision and even after having tried to work out an arrangement with the singer, who was supposed to do a medley from the album but ultimately decided to back out of her scheduled performance.
Even after not attending the award show, the pop star later posted a video clip of her dancing around her room after they announced that she won her first-ever Grammy, winning Best Pop Vocal Album for Sweetener, her 2018 LP.
Alicia Keys will be returning as host of the Grammy Awards which will be held at the Staples Center in Los Angeles, California and will be broadcasted live on CBS, January 26th, Sunday starting at 8 p.m. Eastern, 5 p.m. Pacific.
