Sorry to break your soul, but Beyoncé won’t be performing at the Grammy Awards on Sunday.
A rep for the superstar confirmed the news to The Hollywood Reporter after social media was fueled by rumors that she was set to take the stage to honor late icon Tina Turner.
Last month, the Australian Today To show tweeted that Beyoncé would pay tribute to Turner on stage, and since then, the news has circulated on X (formerly known as Twitter), leading many to believe that it is true. Turner died last May after a long illness at her home in Kusnacht, near Zurich, Switzerland.
At the 2008 Grammys, Beyoncé and Turner performed an explosive performance of “Proud Mary.” When Turned died, Beyoncé shared a photo of herself with the caption on her website and wrote: “My beloved queen. I love you infinitely. I am so grateful for your inspiration and all the ways you have paved the way. You are strength and resilience. You are the embodiment of power and passion. We are all very lucky to have witnessed your kindness and beautiful spirit which will remain forever. Thank you for everything you have done.”
Artists performing at Sunday’s show include SZA, Billie Eilish, Dua Lipa, Olivia Rodrigo, Joni Mitchell, U2, Billy Joel, Luke Combs, Burna Boy and Travis Scott. Presenters include Meryl Streep, Oprah Winfrey, Lionel Richie, Christina Aguilera, Lenny Kravitz, Maluma, Mark Ronson, Taylor Tomlinson and Samara Joy.
Trevor Noah will host the show, broadcast live on CBS from the Crypto.com Arena in Los Angeles. SZA is the leading candidate with nine nominations; Victoria Monét and Phoebe Bridgers follow with seven nominations; and Taylor Swift, Eilish and Rodrigo earned six nominations each.
