Lauryn Hill Cancels Grammy Performance

Lauryn Hill was arranged to perform at the 2016 Grammy Award tonight with the Weeknd. If you watched the Award show you would know that that did not take place. The performance was supposed to be a surprise but it was said by a spokesperson for Hill that the performance was never officially confirmed or authorized.

The rep made this following statement: “The Grammys 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. 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.”

Who wouldn’t have wanted to see this performance? I sure of heck would.
