Grande said, No thank you, next!

The popstar had been scheduled to perform at the February 10 show, but as well as not taking to the stage, she reportedly won't even attend this year's ceremony.

On Tuesday night, Variety was first to report that Grande would be skipping the Grammys completely over a disagreement with the show's producers over which song she would sing.

The same thing happened with Lorde at last years Grammys. "And I'd love to get her in the show this year".

However, Variety have now reported that the singer felt "insulted" after producers refused to let her perform certain songs.

It is not only the goals they are shipping, but the injuries have taken a toil for Unai Emery's men who have the third worst defensive record in the top ten.

She's also sure to be hoping for success at the music awards - as she's up for five gongs. While producers eventually compromised by allowing Ari's latest single to be part of a medley, the songstress ended up pulling out after producers insisted that they get to choose the second song.

Complicating matters, the show had been promoting Grande as a performer on social media. 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.

With album Thank U, Next set to drop just two days after the show, a performance in front of millions could have been a nice way to advertise her new music.

Grande, who's nominated in the Best Pop Vocal Performance and Best Pop Vocal Album categories, maintained that she's "still grateful for the acknowledgement" despite her differences with producers.
