Ariana Grande Forced to Cancel Surprise BRIT Awards Performance

By  | 

Oh no! Ariana Grande has been forced to pull out of her surprise performance at the 2018 BRIT Awards due to illness.

According to various reports, the “Everday” singer had to cancel the performance after being informed by her doctor that she couldn’t fly overseas. Her performance at the BRIT Awards was never officially announced but was definitely expected to be a tribute to the 22 victims who died in the Manchester terror attack that took place at her concert last year.

The secret that Ariana would be taking the stage was leaked a bit ago, and it was expected to be the “biggest talking point of the night.” An insider explained, “The whole industry wants to come together to pay their respects to the victims. The effects of that terrible night resonated far and wide in the music industry and it’s only right everyone comes together to pay their respects.”

The BRIT Awards hasn’t confirmed any of these reports, but all signs lead to this being true, and Liam Gallagher is rumored to have taken Ari’s place for the tribute. While it’s so sad to hear that Ariana is not feeling well, we think we can all agree that this woman has been through so much this year. She very successfully organized the One Love Manchester concert following the terror attack, with show-stopping performances from artists including Justin Bieber, Miley Cyrus, Coldplay and Katy Perry, to name just a few.

If the news is true, then Ariana could be added to the list of stars who canceled shows due to illness, huh?
