What a bummer!

Days before the Grammys on February 15, rumors swirled about Lauryn Hill performing alongside The Weeknd. Not only did one of Hill's musicians share a photo hinting at a possible trip to El Lay, but another insider also teased at a collab earlier in the evening.

Check out the misleading post (below)!

Yep, that was a HARD tease!

But wait, why didn't the singer perform with The Weeknd then?

According to Hill's rep, it was simply a matter of bad timing and false advertisement:

"The Grammys announced a performance by Ms. Lauryn Hill prematurely and without approval. Ms. Hill had concerts all weekend, leaving no time to prepare, and was uncertain she would even be able to make it to LA in time to rehearse for the event. Any performance that could have happened was never confirmed, and should not have been advertised as such. Ms. Hill was invited to do a collaboration with an artist she appreciates. The performance was intended to be a surprise and unfortunately due to its last minute nature, was unable to come to fruition."

Wow it sounds like L.H.'s rep is NOT happy! What a terrible mix-up…

Either way, Ms. Hill still remains an amazing artist and contributor to R&B — hopefully she'll grace the Grammys stage once again!
