Ariana Grande also pulled out after clashing with producers over which song to perform. "It was when my creativity [and] self-expression was stifled by you, that I decided not to attend".

Grande responded to the statements on Twitter saying, "I've kept my mouth shut but now you're lying about me".

"As you go on that red carpet, as you take the stage, as you are with your teams and you're dealing with that anxiety and that pressure and you're feeling like you're falling into competition with your fellow women and sisters, know that that's not what this is about".

The 2019 Grammy Awards will air this Sunday, February 10 on CBS.

The performances: The Grammys will feature a bevy of musical performances, including an opening number featuring Camila Cabello alongside Ricky Martin, Arturo Sandoval, Young Thug and J Balvin.

Monae's groundbreaking album, "Dirty Computer", is one of five albums by women nominated for the top prize at Sunday's show, airing live at 8 p.m. Singers Kacey Musgraves and Katy Perry will collaborate to present a tribute to Dolly Parton.

South Africans will be happy to know that The Soweto Gospel Choir has been nominated for a 2019 Grammy Award.

But this year, Monae is looking forward to the show, where women are now leading in nominations for big categories like album of the year and best new artist.

Grammys producer Ken Ehrlich said many hip-hop artists feel "alienated" at the awards show, thanks in major part because hip-hop projects often lose in major categories. Instead, Grammy viewers will be treated to a Post Malone/Red Hot Chili Peppers collaboration (during which Mountain Dew and Cheeto dust will ooze from your TV) and a Motown tribute from Jennifer Lopez, despite the fact that February is Black History Month, and despite the fact that genre pioneers Stevie Wonder, Diana Ross, and Smokey Robinson are still very much alive. Nominations wise, Kendrick Lamar leads the way with eight, followed by Drake with seven and Boi-ida and Brandi Carlile with six apiece. H.E.R.is also up for Best New Artist against Chloe x Halle, Luke Combs, Greta Van Fleet, Dua Lipa, Margo Price, Bebe Rexha and Jorja Smith.
