It looks like Ariana Grande will not be saying Thank U, Next to performing at this year’s Grammy Awards. 

The singer announced on her social media accounts on Sunday (Jan 12) that she will be joining the likes of Billie Eilish, Lizzo, Gwen Stefani and Aerosmith who will also put on a show at the awards ceremony.

The announcement comes after she pulled out of last year's show at the last minute after a dispute with the producers. She had been slated to perform, but cancelled because she could not agree with the producers on the choice of song.

Producers had initially rejected her choice to sing 7 Rings but conceded on the condition that they be allowed to pick her second song. Grande did not agree to that arrangement.

The 26-year-old is up for five Grammys at this year’s awards, including album of the year. She won last year for best pop vocal album for Sweetener. 

This year's Grammys is scheduled for Jan 26 with Alicia Keys returning as host for the second year. .
