Normani Issues Statement After BBMAs Cancellation / Thousands Of Fans Sign Petition For Performance To Continue

Published: Thursday 25th Apr 2019 by Sam

As reported, Normani‘s planned performance with Sam Smith at the 2019 Billboard Music Awards was unfortunately pulled after the British singer injured his vocal chords while touring abroad.

While gutted that the pair wouldn’t be rocking the stage together, many were hopeful 22-year-old Normani would press on and rep their duet ‘Dancing With A Stranger’ herself.

Supporters of the singer even took to Change.org to create a petition demanding it; a petition that, as at writing, has been signed over 2000 times.

It remains to be seen if producers for the May 1st ceremony will take heed to the fan requests. But, as it stands, the official word is that the Fifth Harmony star won’t be performing.

Moments ago, she took to social media to issue a statement on the matter:

We’d love to see Mani in action at the BBMAs. You?

    They trying to sabotage her because she shines over him that in itself well push her forward

    • Yeh sure April 25, 2019

      Shines over him? Really? You’re reaching.. he has sold millions, she was out together in the group, cause her vocals wasn’t strong enough as solo singer in X factor.

      • Echo April 25, 2019

        Girl shut up! All 5 of them were put in the group, but came on the show as solo acts. Just because the X Factor doesn’t think she can be solo makes it legit. And so what if he has sold millions. There are a lot of alleged singers out that has sold millions of records.

      • Yeh sure April 25, 2019

        Yeah she came on the show as a solo singer, and got rejected. That’s why she was put into a group. She could make it as a solo singer, but so could millions of other singers. There’s nothing special about her… She needs to write herself a hit.

        idk about all that, but I do know that sam has not had a hit peak this high on the hot100 since his first album era 4-5yrs ago. those are facts.

    • Wordonthestreet April 25, 2019

      SERiOUSLY Why wont they let her perform Waves instead???? TF?

      • MusicRealnessss April 26, 2019

        Because waves is trash

  2. biancacook April 25, 2019

    this woulda been the perfect opportunity to showcase her as a solo artist with a medley with her few songs. how are new artist supposed to get exposure if the focus is always on the existing artist? especially when it comes to black r&b acts.

  3. I hate b&w b itchezz . They both not sht April 25, 2019

    They can have Sam on screen. Normani on stage .that isn’t fair to either record company…to lose the whole show……

    • SMH April 25, 2019

      That’s exactly how they should do it.

    • I hate b&w b itchezz . They both not sht April 25, 2019

      They don’t wanna give Sam that type of attention to have him on a big screen somebody would get mad so they just cancelled it..other artists will get offended who the fck is he.

      • Danny Bey April 25, 2019

        Offended for what?? It’s not even that deep.

  4. SMH April 25, 2019

    I still think they can work something out and allow her to perform. The demand to see her is clearly there.

  5. Danny Bey April 25, 2019

    THIS is how you know you’re on your way to becoming a force to be reckoned with. All this outcry for her not performing anymore shows how much people want to see her, in her element. Not since Beyonce has there really been an artist people have been thirsting for in regards to performing at an award show. Normani is THAT B*TCH PERIOD.

    • iamdiego April 26, 2019

      its as clear as day. im sure she will still be there and hopefuly she wins her first award. they could let her present or something.

  6. ~The Arcade~ April 25, 2019

    Just signed… I’m gutted, looks like BBMA readily gave up and never even considered another option for Normani to perform; that’s what I got out of her statement.

  7. MusicRealnessss April 25, 2019

    Why would they let Normani perform she has done nothing to earn that. She was going to perform because of the song she did with Sam Smith. Do something first, number 1 single or get nominated by yourself before you get that spotlight. Shes talented but not there yet. Keep grinding Normani and your day will come. It’s just not today

    • biancacook April 25, 2019

      but thats what performances on award shows are for when in regards to new artist, to showcase what it is they have to offer to gain a bigger audience.

      • MusicRealnessss April 26, 2019

        She needs her own song or nomination to perform. Not a feature…. they have news artists perform who have nominations…. normani fans want her to perform without paying dues, get outta here with that…. and then they want to project Sam Smith on a screen like normani made the song…. when has that happened???? Never….. take a seat normani fans

    • iamdiego April 26, 2019

      you late af. she is nominated this year (twice). yall stay putting out things that are not true. and for the millionth time she’s NOT featured. its her song. stay mad.
