Drake, Kendrick Lamar, & Childish Gambino Decline to Perform at Grammys

Alicia Keys and James Corden

Some viewers may tune into music's biggest night, which airs live on CBS on Sunday, to see who's missing rather than who's there. The album earned Keys the first five of her 15 Grammy Awards. These categories include Album of the Year and Song of the Year.

Who is hosting the 2019 Grammy Awards? Although her musical career began four years ago, Cara had a string of hit songs off of "Know-It-All" that stretched well into 2017. Keys has promised to craft a show that champions an "amazing energy" and celebration.

"If something's really important to you and you really, really care about it, don't forget to just soak it in", she continued, adding, "Because sometimes you can keep working for something and you do it, you do it right, but it doesn't mean that you necessarily super let yourself go and let yourself enjoy it".

"Congratulations", he said. "But you could have waited till I got dressed".

It appears she is not alone in her decision to decline a performance at the prestigious event because the trio of 0f Drake, Kendrick Lamar and Childish Gambino have all declined to perform as well.

Current nominees Chloe x Halle, Grammy victor Lady Gaga, Grammy victor Mark Ronson and Grammy nominee Travis Scott are set to perform Sunday.

Cardi B., Brandi Carlile, Drake, Kendrick Lamar and Post Malone will also compete for Album of the Year, alongside H.E.R., Kacey Musgraves and Janelle Monáe. Also, current nominee Dua Lipa will perform with Grammy victor St. Vincent. In what is sure to be a Grammy moment to remember, Yolanda Adams, Fantasia, and Andra Day will honor the legendary Aretha Franklin.

Traditionally, artists are allowed to perform the songs they are nominated for, and Grande isn't nominated for "7 Rings", considering it recently came out.
