Here’s why Lorde turned down a Grammy performance
 Add to favorites

Lorde isn’t performing at the Grammys as she wasn’t offered a solo spot unlike the other nominees in her category – and was instead asked to perform with other artists.

The New Zealand singer is up for Album of the Year for ‘Melodrama‘ at the New York ceremony, and while the other nominees in the category – who are all male – were offered a solo spot (according to Variety), Lorde was only asked to take part in a collaborative tribute to Tom Petty.

A source told the publication that she turned down an offer to take part in a joint performance of the late singer’s ‘American Girl’.

Earlier this week, Lorde’s mother Sonja Yelich drew attention to the snub on Twitter, posting a section from a New York Times article about the awards’ lack of diversity.

She circled a section which reads: “Of the 899 people nominated in the last six Grammy Awards, 9 percent were women. (This year, Lorde is the only woman nominated for album of the year; she is not scheduled to perform.)”

“This says it all,” Yelich captioned the post.

Lorde is joined in the Album of The Year category by Jay-Z (‘4:44’), Kendrick Lamar (‘DAMN’), Bruno Mars (’24K Magic’) and Childish Gambino, (‘”Awaken, My Love!”‘).

Meanwhile, Lorde did however perform elsewhere in New York City this weekend. Joining the likes of Harry Styles, Haim and Miley Cyrus, the popstar took to the stage to honour Fleetwood Mac at MusiCares’ Person of the Year.
