Singer Lauryn Hill Cancels Grammys 2016 Performance, Rep Confirms

Lauryn Hill was expected to join The Weeknd on stage during his performance at the 2016 Grammy Awards held at the Staples Center on Monday (February 15) in Los Angeles.

However, the 40-year-old singer cancelled her performance, and released a statement explaining why.

“The Grammy’s announced a performance by Ms. Lauryn Hill prematurely and without approval. Ms. Hill had concerts all weekend, leaving no time to prepare, and was uncertain she would even be able to make it to LA in time to rehearse for the event,” her rep said in a statement (via Billboard). “Any performance that could have happened was never confirmed, and should not have been advertised as such. Ms. Hill was invited to do a collaboration with an artist she appreciates. The performance was intended to be a surprise and unfortunately due to its last minute nature, was unable to come to fruition.”
