Drake Pulls Out Of Grammy Nominations Concert Hours Before Kickoff


Hours before it kicks off this evening, Rapper Drake has pulled out of the 2014 Grammy nominations concert, citing a scheduling clash as his grounds for doing so.

Details below…

The Daily Mail reports:

“Drake has pulled out of Friday’s Grammy Nominations Concert just 24 hours before the event citing ‘scheduling conflicts,’ even though he has no other show planned for that day.

The 27-year-old’s  was seen as the centerpiece of the night, and organisers are now scrambling around desperately trying to fill the void left by the hip hop superstar.”

To which TMZ added:

“The show had been promoting the rapper as one of their big acts since October … but a rep for Drake tells TMZ something came up, and now he won’t be able to attend. 

“Unfortunately, due to scheduling complications, Drake will no longer be performing … [he’s] currently in the middle of his nationwide ‘Would You Like A Tour?’ and sincerely apologizes to his fans that he can’t be there.”

According Drake’s website, he’s not scheduled to perform anywhere on Dec. 6th … though he does have a show the following day in Missouri. 

So, why the sudden conflict? We asked the rep … but didn’t get an explanation. 

Don’t fear, Grammy fans … Lorde, Katy Perry and Taylor Swift have all been added to the lineup within the last 24 hours.”

    Same performers all the time. Smh!

  4. Molly December 6, 2013

    People that deserves nominations
    Ciara best (r&b song,album& artist)
    Rihanna (deserves one for diamonds)
    Katy Perry
    and Bruno

    People that dont
    Justin Timberlake (So overrated! His new s*** is so wack i dont see how its a major success more like major disappointment.)

    Miley (she stoops to desperate levels just to be noticed)

    Gaga (99.8% of her music is just pure trash)

    I still am hoping that he gets his nominations that he deserves, the Grammy’s is losing his credibility so he’ll probably lose it to Macklemore

    “What to do when your album isn’t selling? Try giving it away, almost. Lady Gaga’s ARTPOP has been such a dud that amazon.com has been deep discounting it like crazy. The CD sells for $6.99 and the MP3 download goes for $4.99. Albums cost $6.99 back in 1975, if you’re keeping count. By comparison. Amazon sells Katy Perry’s “Prism” CD for 15 bucks, Britney Spears’s new “Britney Jean” for $11.99, Eminem’s hit “MMLP2″ for $16.88, and the new One Direction collection for $19.46. Lady Gaga’s $4.99 download isn’t exceptional, but it’s about as low as you can go without just tossing the albums in a recycle bin. Meanwhile, iTunes has left ARTPOP at a full price of $14.99. It’s dropped to number 20 after three weeks.”


    Excited to see katy!

    You guys say the same thing every year…who ya’ll think should get a grammy….the grammys include everyone to the people we never even heard of so stop getting your hopes up over this b*******

  17. FutureCIARA December 6, 2013

    Kiii At Lorde filling in…… Better her than asking Lana.

    Anywho, Drake shouldn’t have done that, he ruined his chances of receiving anything with the Grammy name attached to it!
