Rihanna, Lauryn Hill Cancel Grammy Performance
February 15, 2016 at 6:04 PM (PT)
RIHANNA has dropped out of tonight's GRAMMY telecast with what TMZ is calling "bronchitis."
A doctor on site recommended she pull the plug on the performance or risk permanently damaging her vocal cords.
She was supposed to sing "Kiss Me Better," from her just-released album, "Anti," and even rehearsed twice, but the show could not go on.
Also MIA was LAURYN HILL, who had been announced as a special guest during THE WEEKND's set, but was not in the building. Her management insisted the booking had never been confirmed, and that HILL had concerts scheduled all weekend, and was unable to properly prepare.
