Kanye West Has Been Banned from Performing at the Grammy Awards Despite His 5 Nominations https://t.co/w4GeglMeGe— People (@people) March 19, 2022
Kanye West, nominated for five Grammy Awards, is reportedly banned from performing at the 64th Annual awards show on Sunday, April 3 because of “concerning online behavior.” According to reports, recent internet squabbles played a role in the decision to prohibit the performance by the artist, who officially changed his name to Ye. One of the battles was with Trevor Noah, who is hosting the Grammys at the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada, and will be broadcast live on CBS.
Kanye, 44, an entertainment mogul, was reportedly locked out of his Instagram account for 24 hours on Thursday, March 17, after he was accused of posting racial slurs on the Daily Show host’s IG page. The incident began Tuesday, March 15, after Noah commented on West’s public split with Kim Kardashian. On the Daily Show episode, Noah said he embraced the “land of tabloids” direction of the Kim-Kanye-Pete(Davidson) situation, but said the situation has gone too far, and urged the mogul to seek therapy.
