Lorde reportedly turned down the collaborative performance, and therefore will not perform at all at Sunday's Grammy ceremony. Variety reports that unlike her male fellow nominees, Lorde wasn't offered a solo performance spot at the awards show, with the Grammys instead proposing that she sing "American Girl" in a group Tom Petty tribute-probably not an especially enticing offer for the New Zealander pop star. It is unclear if this means Lorde will skip the ceremony in its entirety or if she will simply bypass the customary red carpet entrance.
She's not going to be there, even with her Album of the Year nomination in play.
She has performed in the Big Apple over the past week, including a cover of Carly Rae Jepsen's "Run Away With Me" at New York's Town Hall on Wednesday.
In addition, the "Greenlight" singer also pulled the plug on the Grammy red carpet according to a new report from TMZ. If this is the case, she would have also been the only AOTY candidate not performing her own music.

Rory McIlroy one off leaders after third-round 65 in Abu Dhabi
Dunne will partner Dylan Fritelli in the final round while McIlroy plays alongside Matt Fitzpatrick in the penultimate group. But Fitzpatrick also said that it was a bit of a slog at times and that he simply made everything he looked at.
The 21-year-old did however sing elsewhere this weekend at the pre-Grammys annual event where she sang with the likes of Harry Styles and Miley Cyrus in honour of the 60s band Fleetwood Mac.
