Drake, Kendrick Lamar And Childish Gambino Decline Grammy Performance

Drake, Kendrick Lamar And Childish Gambino Decline Grammy Performance

However, Lady Gaga has been reportedly added to the performance list.

Some of the biggest names in Rap music have opted out of performing live at the 2019 Grammy Awards.

Kendrick Lamar, Drake, and Childish Gambino all turned down the Recording Acadamy's requests to perform at this year's Grammy Awards, according to a report from The New York Times. Or Jay-Z, who was up for eight awards but went home without a single win.

The Times' latest story, which was published on February 7, suggests the artists' rejection may have stemmed from a longstanding tension between the Recording Academy and the hip-hop community.

Rappers Post Malone ("Beerbongs & Bentleys") and the absent Drake's best-seller "Scorpion" are also vying for the top prize.

Grammys producer Ken Ehrlich said many hip-hop artists feel "alienated" at the awards show, thanks in major part because hip-hop projects often lose in major categories.

Snowstorm buries Northwest, with more on the way
The low temperature in the Seattle area tonight will dip into the upper 20s, with a windchill dropping into the teens. Snowfall amounts will range from an inch to 3 inches (2.5 centimeters to 7.6 centimeters) through Sunday night.

Grammy organizers this year expanded the top four categories - album, record, song of the year, and best new artist - to eight nominees from five in a bid to diversify the contest. "Grammy voters are less concerned with commercial success and more concerned with the work as a whole", she said.

According to some seating chart photos, it looks like at least Mr. Lamar will be in attendance at the event-though the same can't be confirmed for Childish Gambino or Drake.

The GRAMMYs seem to have an issue with performers this year, yesterday Ariana Grande pulled out of the show due to creative differences.

In 2017, Recording Academy President Neil Portnow said in an interview with Pitchfork that he didn't think there was a race problem. Taylor Swift's "Reputation" only received one nomination, too.

Three of hip-hop's biggest stars rejected offers to perform on music's biggest night.

Sunday's show will include tributes to Diana Ross, to mark her 75th birthday in March, and to Aretha Franklin, who died last August.
