One performer will be absent from the 2021 MTV Video Music Awards.
The show’s official Twitter account announced that Lorde would not be performing as scheduled due to “production elements change”.
“Lorde can no longer perform at this year’s show due to production changes. Love Lorde and can’t wait to see her on the VMA stage!” Twittered VMAs
The 24-year-old singer was scheduled to perform Solar Power from her recent album.
She last danced to her Melodrama song Homemade Dynamite at the 2017 VMAs.
She didn’t sing because she had an illness.
Due to a change in production elements, Lorde can no longer perform at this year’s show. We love Lorde and cannot wait for her to perform on the VMA stage in the future! 💛— Video Music Awards (@vmas) September 3, 2021
