Though she's nominated for three Grammys, including Song of the Year for "Lover," Us Weekly reported she won't be going to the ceremony; the outlet didn't confirm the reason for missing the event. Earlier this week, she was assumed to be attending, thanks to a seating chart that circulated online from CBS and Headline Planet and showed her sitting next to BTS and near Beyoncé. Headline Planet updated their tweet on Jan. 24 to add, "For what it's worth, CBS has removed some Grammy seat card photos from its press gallery, notably those featuring @taylorswift13, @Beyonce & Jay-Z (We have not received a statement regarding why, but this is exactly the reason we used "tentative" so often in these Tweets)."
There are many reasons why Taylor might choose not to attend the Grammys (and we still don't know if she's officially not going)— Us Weekly pointed to snubs in the major categories, but she's also got a lot on her plate with the recent premiere of her Miss Americana documentary, and the announcement of her mother's brain tumor diagnosis.
The Grammys, meanwhile, are generating their own headlines this week: Recording Academy president and CEO Deborah Dugan was put on administrative leave 10 days before the ceremony, and a flood of rumors has surrounded the Grammys' decision. The New York Times reported that Dugan filed a complaint to the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission that "accused the academy of retaliating against her for uncovering misconduct including sexual harassment, voting irregularities and rampant conflicts of interest among board members."
Grammys 2020 is just a few days away, and if a tentative seating chart is to be believed, we could see a major grouping of stars sitting close together: BTS, Beyoncé, and Taylor Swift. Talk about legends only.
According to a photo allegedly taken by CBS that has been circulating around Twitter, Bey and Jay-Z will be sitting in the front, with Taylor and the guys of BTS directly behind them. In the past, Taylor and BTS had hung out and taken a photo together at the BBMAs in 2018, plus fans on Twitter are pretty thrilled that Beyoncé will likely get to meet her unofficial son Jimin. The conversations that this crew would have.... we can only imagine.
Taylor is nominated for Song of the Year for "Lover," Best Pop Solo Performance for "You Need to Calm Down," and Best Pop Vocal Album for Lover, while Bey is nominated for her Lion King song "Spirit" and album The Lion King: The Gift. BTS, meanwhile, is set to perform at the show, and fans are excited about seeing all of their faves in one place.
"Which member is going to sit next to taylor are they going to rotate is jimin going to tell her he loves never grow up is jin going to say me! makes him happy is taylor going to tell them mic drop is like nothing she’s ever seen before is she going to try to adopt yoongi i-," tweeted BuzzFeed's Ellie Bate.
"Blue and Jimin sitting beside each other call that Ivy Park," jokedone ARMY member. Another fan added, "Remember when Taylor wins an award and she usually hugs the person next to her... BTS get ready for hugs."
The chart also shows nominee Billie Eilish sitting next to her brother Finneas, and fellow nominee Ariana Grande near songwriter Jesse Saint John. However, the chart is just tentative, so there's a chance things may be switched up. The only way to know for sure is to tune into the Grammy Awards on January 26!
