This Is Why Ariana Grande Isn't Performing at the Grammys After All

The Grammys are slated to be held on February 10 and will see a stellar line up of music artists performing to their hit and soulful tracks.

The insider claims that producers suggested a medley performance instead, which Ariana is reported to have been on board with.

A source close to the singer tells CNN that Grande has decided not to perform at Sunday's event - or attend - after a dispute with the show's producers. I am still grateful for the acknowledgement this year'.

During an interview with Billboard previous year, Ariana made it very clear that she is not a pushover in the industry.

In addition, her personal life has also taken center stage. Officially released on August 17, the record sold an impressive 231,000 "equivalent sales units" in its first week, as reported by Nielsen Music (via Billboard), which represented a major jump from her third record, 2016's Dangerous Woman, which debuted at No. 2, selling just 175,000 units.

Grande is nominated for Best Pop Vocal Performance for "God Is a Woman" and Best Pop Vocal Album for 2018's "Sweetener".

But she has also played triumphant concerts, including the "One Love Manchester" benefit staged just two weeks after the tragedy, and released a triumphant No. 1 album and a string of recent blockbuster singles - with 'Thank U, Next, ' arriving Friday, just a few months after the release of 'Sweetener'.

In a new interview with the Associated Press, Grammys producer Ken Ehrlich said that they had "multiple conversations" with Grande about performing but that Grande "felt it was too late for her to pull something together".
