Lorde will no longer be performing at the 2021 MTV Video Music Awards. She earned a cinematography nomination for “Solar Power” and was expected to perform the album’s title track.

MTV stated over the weekend, (quote) “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!”

Her previous appearance, four years ago, was memorable. Lorde had a touch of the flu. Rather than sing or lip sync, she interpretative danced to “Homemade Dynamite.”

The 2021 awards ceremony is scheduled for Sunday, September 12th at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn, New York. Mariah Carey is rumored to close the show with an emotional remembrance of the 9-11 victims on the 20th anniversary.

Confirmed performers include Olivia Rodrigo, Lil Nas X Justin Bieber, Shawn Mendes, Camila Cabello, Chlöe, Machine Gun Kelly and the awards show host, Doja Cat. (Billboard)
