Rihanna cancelled her performance at the 2016 Grammys at the last minute due to bronchitis.

The singer's rep confirmed in a statement to E! News, saying, "Based on Rihanna's examination, after Grammy rehearsal today, Rihanna's doctor put her on vocal rest for 48-hours because she was at risk of hemorrhaging her vocal chords. The antibiotics she has been on for 3-days did not kill the infection adequately therefore she cannot perform safely."

TMZ reports the singer did not walk the red carpet and the 27-year-old made it to rehearsals but left. Sources told TMZ the singer has been dealing with bronchitis, and that an on-site doctor recommended RiRi not follow through with her scheduled performance.
