Drake Confirms He Won't Be Performing at the 2016 Grammys

The 2016 Grammy Awards are right around the corner, and if you're coming for Drake — don't. 

The rapper won’t be performing, but hey, it’s the thought that counts. 

Much to the disappointment of CBS (and his fans), Drake has confirmed he won’t be gracing the stage at the Grammys this year with his presence, save for taking home an award or two himself.

Airing during last night’s Super Bowl (Feb. 7), a commercial promoting the Grammys hinted that Drake would be amongst this year's performers. 

After seeing his name flash on screen, he shot that down real quick, posting a tweet saying, “I am not performing at the Grammy Awards…but hey it’s the thought that counts.”

Drake is nominated for a nice handful of awards, including Best Rap Performance, Best Rap/Sung Collaboration, Best Rap Song and Best Rap Album.

The Grammy Awards will air in one week's time on February 15 at 8 p.m. EST on CBS.
