No JT, no Grammys.

Music’s biggest night will miss out on a performance from Justin Timberlake.

2018 is shaping up to be the year of JT. The pop star has a new album on the way (the lead single is rumored to drop in January) and is headlining the Super Bowl Halftime Show. He’ll undoubtedly make some other very high-profile appearances/performances as the year trolls along (pun), but he’s reportedly not taking the stage at the Grammys in February. Da fuq?

Word on the street is that JT has had a bone to pick with the Recording Academy for snubbing “Can’t Stop The Feeling” in the Song of the Year and Record of the Year categories at the 2018 awards show despite its cultural impact and chart staying power (it did receive a nod in the Best Song Written for Visual Media). I’m sure there’s more to the story.

Hits Daily Double claims JT is choosing to skip next year’s forthcoming ceremony. They add “tensions are easing and 2019 could mark his return to that stage.”

Look, I won’t pretend to know what’s going on here, but one thing’s for sure: Justin Timberlake’s presence is wanted, no REQUIRED at the 2018 Grammys. The Recording Academy better fix this, and quick. No JT, no Grammys.

  1. For a blogger you sure don’t know much. Justin is skipping performing at the Grammy’s because when you do the half-time show you never do the Grammy’s. Just like when you do the half-time show once your signed you can’t perform live on television anywhere before it. And his beef with the Grammy’s is over the snub of the 20/20 Experience not Can’t Stop The Feeling.

      1. They can present but under pretty much all SB halftime contracts you cannot perform at the Grammy’s if you perform at the Halftime show. This has been an unwritten rule for as long as I can remember.

        1. They have lightened up on their past rules of letting people perform at the Grammy’s if they perform at the halftime show. It used to be also you couldn’t do the Grammy’s if you did the AMA’s but they’re changing that too. But you are right that this hdd piece seems to be misunderstood by this site. Nowhere did it say he had been offered or turned down a performance at the Grammy’s. So for all we know he still might do it.

  2. who cares anyways? Can’t Stop the feeling didn’t deserve to be nominated tho. I’d rather see Bruno performing he is got the hits and is performing so well lately.
