Beyoncé turns down performing at the Grammys

Poetic Orator | 14.03.2021 | 0 | World

It’s a few hours to Grammy night and reports are out saying Beyoncé has declined to perform at this year’s event. Some sources saying she might not take part in the ceremony at all. In the exact words of Harvey Mason, interim CEO and president of the recording academy in an interview with the LA Times, “It’s unfortunate because she’s such a big part of the Recording Academy,” he commented. “We absolutely wish we had her onstage.” Beyoncé turns down performing at the Grammys

Ben Winston, the executive producer of the Grammys, was also asked about Beyoncé’s absence: Viewers “might” find it strange that she’s not there, he said when prompted.

Beyoncé is nominated for a total of nine awards at this year’s show. “Black Parade” earned her nods in the record of the year, song of the year, best r&b performance, and best r&b song categories. “Savage” with Megan Thee Stallion is up for record of the year, best rap performance, and best rap song. Beyoncé’s “Brown Skin Girl” earned a nod for the best music video, and Black Is King is a contender for best music film.

A number of artists have criticized the Grammys in recent years, including The Weeknd, who vowed to boycott the show moving forward after his hit album After Hours and its smash “Blinding Lights” were snubbed in this year’s nominations. After tweeting that “the Grammys remain corrupt” and that he went from planning to perform to being “not invited” in November, he recently said, “Because of the secret committees, I will no longer allow my label to submit my music to the Grammys.”

Kendrick Lamar and childish Gambino also declined to perform at the Grammys of 2019.

The 2021 Grammy Awards are airing on Sunday (March 14) at 8 p.m. ET/5 p.m. PT on CBS, Paramount+ and Grammy.com.

Will you be watching or will you Boycott?
