Ariana Grande reportedly had plans to perform a tribute for the victims of the Manchester attack at the BRIT Awards tonight, but pulled out last-minute.

Event organizers are said to be frantic trying to find a replacement for the “biggest talking point of the night” after Ari’s team notified them a mere 24 hours before the show that she will be unable to fulfill her commitment because she’s sick.

A source told the Mirror, “Ariana fell ill and was going to come in spite of that, but was ordered by her doctor to not fly.”

They added: “It was utter chaos when the call came in that Ariana couldn’t do it. It’s race against time to get someone to do what is very much the centrepiece of the entire show.”

 



 

During the performance, names of the people who lost their lives at Ariana’s Manchester concert will be projected onto a screen.

Word on the street is Liam Gallagher will replace Grande. “Liam has saved the day by stepping in at the last minute. It’s a perfect choice,” a source told The Mirror. He is supposedly singing “Live Forever” from Oasis’ hit album Definitely Maybe. “It’s going to be the moment of the evening.”

Confirmed performers include Rita Ora, Liam Payne, Dua Lipa, Ed Sheeran, Justin Timberlake and Sam Smith, among others. Jack Whitehall is hosting the show live from London’s O2 Arena.
