We were looking forward to Rihanna hitting the 20166 Grammy stage for a performance of her new song, Work perhaps, but we won;t get to see that —she canceled. We were looking for RiRi on the red carpet and when she failed to appear we just thought she was sneaking in the back…nope according to TMZ, the pop star is battling bronchitis and was asked not to perform per doctor’s orders.

Rihanna was set to perform “Kiss Me Better.”

Rihanna’s rep confirmed the news, “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.”
