Lorde's mom, Sonja Yelich, hinted that sexism played a role in why the other nominees got solo-performance offers.
The 21-year-old singer will not sing on the show and is considering not even attending, even though she was in New York City on Grammy weekend, TMZ reported.
Variety reports that Lorde, one of this year's five nominated artists for Album of Year, was not offered an opportunity to perform solo at this year's ceremony.
She was nominated for four awards for her breakout hit, "Royals", and debut album, Pure Heroine, and won two: Song of the Year and Best Pop Solo Performance. The publication writes, "one source says it was part of a tribute to the late Tom Petty involving his song "American Girl" (which would have been an odd fit for the New Zealand-born singer)".
