Singer, Ariana Grande will not be performing at the Grammy Awards after reportedly falling out with the show's producers. The Grammys committee was using her likeness in promotional billboards all across Los Angeles, with tons of marketing devoted to her now-cancelled February 10 performance.

According to a source who spoke with Hits Daily Double, the star apparently felt "insulted" after the Grammys production team disallowed her to sing her trap-inspired single "7 Rings" at the upcoming function.

After coming to a compromise, allowing Grande to perform the single as part of a medley, the 25-year-old cancelled completely as producers wanted to choose the second song she would play, one of the insiders added.

With Grande pulling out of both performing and attending the awards ceremony, it could lead to a big dip in the ratings, giving how popular she is at the moment. Grande also likely wants to use the platform to promote her new album "Thank U, Next", featuring that track.

7 Rings was played a record 15 million times in its first 24 hours on the music streaming service Spotify.
