Last night (February 7) during the Super Bowl, CBS announced a treasure trove of upcoming Grammy performances — but not all the artists on the list are exactly on board with the show.
The Grammys counted Drake among those scheduled to make an appearance at the show next Monday, February 15. Though he’s nominated for four awards (including Best Rap Album and Best Rap Song), Drake himself had other plans.
“I am not performing at the Grammy Awards,” he tweeted shortly after the spot. “But hey it’s the thought that counts.”

Drizzy might not be making it out to the Grammy stage, but thankfully, Taylor Swift will definitely be in attendance. The Grammys officially confirmed her performance on Twitter, and Taylor sealed the deal with a retweet.
