Why Isn't Ariana Grande Going to the 2019 AMAs?


The AMAs (American Music Awards) are on Sunday, and you can expect to see tons of celebrities and musicians there. Nominees include Taylor Swift, Halsey, and Post Malone for Artist of the Year; Billie Eilish, Lizzo, and Luke Combs for New Artist of the Year; BTS and Panic! At The Disco for Favorite Duo or Group, and the list goes on. There's one nominee who definitely isn't going to show up to the AMAs though, and that's Ariana Grande. Ariana Grade was nominated for a few categories, so what gives?

Why isn't Ariana Grande going to the 2019 AMAs even though she's nominated?

Ugh! Are we really not going to see Ariana and her ponytail?! Besides Artist of the Year, Ariana was also nominated for Tour of the Year, Favorite Music Video (for "7 rings"), and Favorite Album (thank u, next). That's a lot of nominations, so honestly how dare she (JK). Turns out, Ariana has a good reason for not showing up at the AMAs. She's already performing at the Amalie Arena in Tampa, Florida — it's one of the stops for her Sweetener tour.
