Taylor Swift will not be performing at the 2024 Grammy Awards.

Although the 34-year-old pop sensation is expected to attend the 66th annual awards show on Sunday, People has reported that she won’t be serenading the attendees at the ceremony.

The reason was cited as the Cruel Summer chart-topper would rush to fly off to Japan to embark on the next leg of her Eras Tour.

She is slated to perform four back-to-back shows at the Tokyo Dome from February 7 to 10, followed by the next stops of the Eras Tour in Australia, Asia, and Europe through the end of Sumer.

The tour is scheduled to come to an end with the last concerts to be held in the United States and Canada this fall.

The news that the Blankspace hitmaker will not perform at the annual music awards came after her boyfriend Travis Kelce confirmed that he won’t be able to make it to the Grammy’s with Swift.

During an interview on The Pat McAfee Show, the Kansas City Chiefs tight end expressed, "I wish I could go support Taylor at the Grammys and watch her win every single award that she’s nominated for."

"But I think I've got practice on Sunday," the 34-year-old NFL star, whose team will play in Super Bowl LVIII on February 11, shared the reason for his absence from the ceremony.

The 12-time Grammy Award winner netted six nominations at the 2024 music awards that include, Song of the Year, Record of the Year and Best Pop Solo Performance for the No. 1 hit Anti-Hero, Best Pop Vocal Album, and Album of the Year for Midnights, as well as Best Pop Duo/Group Performance for Karma with Ice Spice.
