After being disappointed by Rihanna canceling her Grammy’s performance, Lauryn Hill was a no show as well. Word in the wind Lauryn Hill was joining The Weekend on stage with a surprise performance. The Weekend took the stage alone because Lauryn Hill showed up to the Grammy’s LATE.
The National Academy of Recording Arts and Sciences president Neil Portnow has confirmed backstage at the Grammys that Lauryn Hill was due for a surprise performance of “In the Night” with the Weeknd but did not show up on time. Portnow says Hill attended dress rehearsal on Sunday morning but missed performing live with the Weeknd, whom Portnow says was ready for her up until the moment the Weeknd got onstage. He says the Weeknd personally invited Hill to be part of his Grammy performance.
