Jem Aswad, writing for Variety:
Sources close to the situation tell Variety that the Grammys approached Lorde about performing with other artists but not solo; one source says it was part of a tribute to the late Tom Petty involving his song “American Girl” (which would have been an odd fit for the New Zealand-born singer). Lorde declined.
That source added that the other Album of the Year contenders — all of whom are male — were offered solo spots performing songs from their respective nominated albums.
Lorde and Jack Antonoff covered Carly Rae Jepsen’s “Run Away With Me” at the Ally Coalition Talent Show last night. Some fan shot video has been uploaded to YouTube.
