Drake pulls out of Grammy nominations show

When the Grammy nominations special goes live on Friday night, there’s one likely nominee who will be missing in action: Drake.

The rapper's latest chart-topper “Nothing Was the Same” could be in the running for multiple categories, but he won't be around to celebrate or perform during the one-hour CBS special because of a last-minute scheduling conflict.

"Unfortunately, due to scheduling complications, Drake will no longer be performing ... [he] is currently in the middle of his nationwide 'Would You Like A Tour?' and sincerely apologizes to his fans that he can't be there," a rep for the rapper said.
CBS announced Drake as among the first slate of performers back in October. His next tour stop is Kansas City on Saturday.

Katy Perry, Taylor Swift, Lorde, T.I. and Miguel were among the last acts added to the lineup that also includes Macklemore & Ryan Lewis. Perry will be beamed in from Canada and Swift’s performance will be shown from Australia, CBS said.The one-hour CBS special “The Grammy Nominations Concert Live -- Countdown to Music’s Biggest Night,” to be hosted again by rapper-actor LL Cool J, will announce the nominations in several categories. The Grammys will be presented Jan. 26 at Staples Center in downtown Los Angeles.
The Grammy nominations show will air Friday at 10 p.m. PST.
