If you had your heart set on seeing Lorde do a Grammy performance, there's a classic one nestled below for your convenience.

Lorde, the recording artist nominated for Album of the Year, has refused to perform at this year's Grammy Awards.

She has performed in the Big Apple over the past week, including a cover of Carly Rae Jepsen's "Run Away With Me" at New York's Town Hall on Wednesday.

The producers offered her a slot to perform Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers' "American Girl" during the segment, but she turned it down.

The 2 sides couldn't come to an agreement so Lorde pulled the plug on performing altogether and word is she won't be on the Red Carpet either.

She's the only Album of the Year nominee to be left out, and the only woman on the list.

Sources also told the outlet that the other four nominees, all males, were offered chances to perform their own songs during the ceremony.

The article also details that each of the other Album of the Year nominees, that include Jay-Z Kendrick Lamar, Childish Gambino, and Bruno Mars were all offered solo performances to showcase tracks from their nominated albums. As of this writing, the Academy has yet to issue any kind of public comment.

The 21-year-old did however sing elsewhere this weekend at the pre-Grammys annual event where she sang with the likes of Harry Styles and Miley Cyrus in honour of the 60s band Fleetwood Mac.

She shared a photo of herself with Stevie Nicks and wrote "heart = full".
