Bails on Grammy Nomination Concert

Blames 'Scheduling Conflict'

12/5/2013 4:08 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF


has pulled himself out of tomorrow's big Grammy Nominations Concert in L.A., TMZ has learned ... and it's all because the guy claims he's got a last minute "scheduling conflict."

The show had been promoting the rapper as one of their big acts since October ... but a rep for Drake tells TMZ something came up, and now he won't be able to attend.

"Unfortunately, due to scheduling complications, Drake will no longer be performing ... [he's] currently in the middle of his nationwide 'Would You Like A Tour?' and sincerely apologizes to his fans that he can’t be there."

According Drake's website, he's not scheduled to perform anywhere on Dec. 6th ... though he does have a show the following day in Missouri.

So, why the sudden conflict? We asked the rep ... but didn't get an explanation.

Don't fear, Grammy fans ... Lorde, Katy Perry and Taylor Swift have all been added to the lineup within the last 24 hours.

First off, the OVER SATURATION of Awards shows is getting totally out of hand. When you can't invent a new music award show you turn around and invent a show to promote the NOMINEES for a major award show? The CASH GRAB for all these shows just proves that it's not about honoring excellence in the medium you choose but about making a boat load of money on the heels of everything that's popular.

Ya, don't fear, FANS. Lorde, who TMZ has been trashing the past month for her High and Mighty diva attitude will be performing. TMZ, Lorde has ONE SONG that has hit the charts, why should we be all excited.
Funniest thing about this, you praised Konartist West with bogus stories why he resheduled a concert in B.C. and then cancelled and made him look like roses when, in fact, he was DENIED entry to Canada and told NO, at the border twice. What's next, Justina steps up to the plate and fills in as a last minute substitute/ Out of the THREE people you mentioned, two are talented. figure that out.

I know what the conflict is. Drake has no talent, or very little talent. Too bad the Grammys are too deaf and dumb to realize it.

You know what Drake? I'm holding that against you. You don't skip the Grammys. That's a legendary music venue. You could have done a satellite appearance or performance just to let the fans and industry feel you.

Do that better next time. A lot of people paved the way so you can have a music vessel. You have to pay that back to music game. To be honest you need to make some arrangements instead of just playing no show, but that's on you.

Music is about sharing.

Respect the core of the industry Drake.

You have to set the tone for the people coming in after you about how to respect the industry.

Every thing is good, right?

Are you sure he didn't bail because of 'dehydration' or exhaustion'? Or 'artistic differences'? Or some other showbiz cliche?

Taylor Swift wasn't added the last 24 hours. CBS had a commercial for this show more than a week ago and mentioned she'd be on it. It wasn't mentioned anywhere else until this week though. It's weird Drake isn't at least on pre-recorded. That is what they're doing with Taylor Swift. Maybe Katy Perry too. It's only a one hour show I think though so one act dropping out is no big deal.
