Rihanna Cancels Grammys 2016 Performance, Rep Confirms

Rihanna will no longer be performing at the 2016 Grammy Awards despite a highly anticipated performance as she is too sick to perform, her rep confirms to JustJared.com.

The 27-year-old singer was set to perform her song “Kiss It Better” off her album Anti and showed up to rehearsals today, but had to back out after she didn’t feel up to performing.

“Based on Rihanna‘s examination, after Grammy rehearsal today, Rihanna‘s doctor put her on vocal rest for 48-hours because she was at risk of hemorrhaging her vocal chords,” her rep told us in a statement. The antibiotics she has been on for 3-days did not kill the infection adequately therefore she cannot perform safely.”

We wish Rihanna a speedy recovery and can’t wait to see her next performance!

    How many concerts is she going to cancel for poor sales.. drugged out.. …exhaustion.

    The 🕐 running out on this hookers career.

    It truly is an awful time to be a rihanna fan. The album has kinda fizzed out and she hasn’t done any performances to support it. I’m getting real worried because I have tickets to see her…

    Rih you better release your work video or something this week to save any face at this point.

  • Dee

    SAME. Beyonce came out with Formation….and everyone just forgot about poor Rih. And the album isnt all that great which is also a huge let down.

  • devvv

    I don’t even know if that will save face at this point. The album was hyped for a year and it was pretty lackluster. This performance was hyped and she canceled last minute. It just seems like she didn’t think the Anti era through all the way.

  • Joher

    Not a fan but she should’ve done playback, I would’ve been okay with that but I guess a lot of people wouldn’t. It was a good opportunity for her to promote her music.
