This week brought with it news of the delightful and devastating variety for Normani and Sam Smith.
For, while their collaboration ‘Dancing With A Stranger’ blazed its way into the top 10 of the Billboard Hot 100, their planned performance of the song at the BBMAs has been cancelled.
As reported, Brit singer Smith was forced to pull out of the May 1st ceremony after straining his vocal chords while on tour.
Some wondered whether rising solo star Normani would go on to rep the pair alone. However, it sadly turns out that won’t be happening.
In a statement issued to Billboard, Dick Clark Productions (who put on the BBMAs) confirmed that neither Smith nor Normani will be taking to the stage in light of the situation.
It’s understood that the former Fifth Harmony star had been in intense rehearsals for the performance.
While we’d have love to see the song plugged in some capacity at the show, we also understand there are many variables behind the scenes that factor into such slots.
Here’s hoping the pair are able to deliver the planned performance somewhere soon.
