Ariana Grande a no-show despite winning first Grammy Award

Grammy producer says Ariana Grande’s tweets were “a surprise”

The fact of the matter is - and I actually wrote a little thing in the middle of the night that I'm not going to do anything about, but, I mean. For the unversed, Grande was initially supposed to perform at the Grammys but pulled out a few days back as she had a disagreement with Grammy producers over her set list.

- Ariana Grande (@ArianaGrande) February 10, 2019i know i'm not there tonight (trust, i tried and still truly wished it had worked out tbh) and i know i said i try not to put too much weight into these things. but fuck. this is wild and handsome. thank you so much. This prompted the singer to respond, calling Ehrlich's explanation a lie.

He also said that he never spoke to Grande directly, and instead worked with her management team.

In a not so typical speech, she joked her nerves were so bad "maybe I need to start smoking w**d". In her own version of an acceptance speech, Grande went on to thank fellow producers Pharrell Williams, Scooter Braun, Tommy Brown, and several others, as well as Republic Records and the Recording Academy itself.

The rapper shared more thanks in a video filmed backstage, specifically showing love to Miller and his family: "I read an article that Mac Miller family said that he don't win, they wanted me to win; so I'm sharing this Grammy with you motherfucker! It was when my creativity and self-expression [were] stifled by you that I decided not to attend".

"I think it's kind of rad that I just lost my 20th Grammy nomination", she posted. She has also been nominated for Best Pop Vocal Album twice before (for My Everything in 2015 and Dangerous Woman in 2017) and Best Pop Solo Performance for "Dangerous Woman" in 2019.
