According to Hits, the Florida native had a conflict with producers over which songs she would perform, with a source telling Variety that Grande initially wanted to take the stage with "7 Rings", the latest single from her upcoming album Thank U, Next, which arrives on February 8.
Deadline states that Lady Gaga will sing at the Grammys, where she is nominated for five awards, including Song of the Year and Record of the Year for her hit song 'Shallow' from A Star Is Born. Last year, the Recording Academy declined to let Lorde perform a particular song of her choosing, which didn't bode well for her participation.
The source added that other scheduled performers did not receive the same stipulations.
Ariana Grande and Taylor Swift are reportedly planning to skip the Grammy Awards on Sunday.
It's after a disagreement with show producers who wouldn't allow her perform 7 Rings.
At first, they seemingly reached a compromise where "7 rings" would feature in a medley made up of many of Ari's latest and greatest tunes, but this soon changed.
Meanwhile, Taylor, who is also nominated in the Best Pop Vocal Album category, is also thought to be giving the Grammys a miss.
Despite Ariana Grande's face being plastered on billboards and buses all over Los Angeles to promote the Grammys, a report from Variety claimed on Feb. 5 that the pop star is neither attending nor performing at the award show this Sunday, Feb. 10.
