Artists from the music industry once again gathered together for this year’s edition of the Grammys to celebrate their artistry and their songs. Billie Eilish was the big winner, Lizzo was resplendent, that Trump girl was still somehow invited, and Lil Nas X was wearing a fabulous pink number. 

All in all, it was a magical night. But some prominent artists just weren’t able to make it this year. 

In a report by business news site, among those who were unable to attend were Beyoncé, Taylor Swift, Halsey, and Rihanna. Let’s see what they were up to instead. 

The “Without Me” singer Halsey was unable to attend the Grammys because of her guest appearance on “SNL” the night before the awards show. Fans of her were still lamenting that “Without Me” didn’t get a nomination, but the singer herself was keen on keeping a positive attitude, cheering up her fans by saying that what matters to her more is the support she gets from them. 

Beyoncé’s absence was felt the most, considering she was nominated for three awards, including best pop solo performance and best pop vocal album. She also snagged a win for “Homecoming,” her Netflix documentary of the work that had gone to making her Coachella performance as perfect as it was. It is not clear why Beyoncé nor Jay Z wasn’t at the Grammys. 

Rihanna was out, too, and many of her fans claimed that it’s probably just because she is gearing up to release her next album. What’s more, she wasn’t booked for the event and her last album was back in 2016, and so her absence at the Grammys was largely understandable.  

After releasing her new album, Swift has gotten a good run so far, which was why it came as a shock to fans when she wasn’t spotted at the Grammys. According to, it might just be that she was not in California at the time because she had attended the premiere of her documentary, “Miss Americana,” at the Sundance Film Festival in Utah.
