Kendrick Lamar, Drake and Childish Gambino Denied Grammy Performances

10 February 2019

Vladimir Duthiers spoke with Keys ahead of the award show.

Ariana Grande also pulled out after clashing with producers over which song to perform. Childish Gambino received five nominations, but the three artists have declined to perform during the show.

"I've kept my mouth shut but now you're lying about me". "It was when my creativity & self expression was stifled by you, that i decided not to attend. i hope the show is exactly what you want it to be and more".

The winners of the 61st Grammy Awards will be announced on 10 February 2019, and fans in South Africa will be able to watch the fancy ceremony on DStv.

Looming predictions of rain could also put a damper on this year's awards ceremony. Additionally, Jennifer Lopez will take the stage for a Motown tribute, although some have criticized the decision to pick a non-black singer for the performance - especially during Black History Month - when artists like Ross, Stevie Wonder or Gladys Knight could have been chosen.

Along with Wilson, this year's presenters include current Grammy nominees Kelsea Ballerini, Leon Bridges and Luke Combs; Grammy winners Alessia Cara, Julian Edelman, Eve, John Mayer, Bob Newhart, Smokey Robinson, Swizz Beatz and Meghan Trainor; recording artist Kane Brown; South Korean pop sensation BTS; past Grammy nominee Cedric The Entertainer; and actors Nina Dobrev, Anna Kendrick, Jada Pinkett Smith and Wilmer Valderrama. It's unclear if they will attend the show. Kendrick Lamar has eight nominations, and Drake has seven.
