The Weeknd was faced with a tough choice -- perform the Grammys or the Super Bowl -- but hammering out a deal to do both could've cost him Grammy nominations.

Sources familiar with the situation tell us The Weeknd's team was in talks for weeks with Grammy brass, who issued the ultimatum -- us or Super Bowl LV. We're told both sides eventually came to an agreement where Abel could do both, but not without negotiations getting very testy. Our sources say there's growing suspicion Abel's decision to perform at this year's Super Bowl cost him Grammy noms because the bitter back-and-forth talks pissed off Grammy honchos.

It's unclear why the Grammys would play such hardball in trying to exclusively book him for their airwaves. It might be fear of duplicate performances, as CBS is airing the award show AND the game one week apart in February. Still, our sources tell us Abel and co. feel the dispute might have something to do with his exclusion.

Like I said in the other thread....The Super Bowl and The Grammys are both on CBS. Maybe he is right - The Grammys are corrupt. oprah14

No one has a era year like he has had and picks Changes and Yummy over it, if it wasn’t corrupt brit12

It's SO clear that something super shady is going on behind the scenes for years now. They need to fess up and stop ignoring the elephant in the room. I'm ready for the drama and mess to come out of this, because it needs to be brought up.

if he's gonna fuck with the biggest establishment in music & piss them off then idk what the fuck he expects honestly 

How was him doing what every other artist in this position would fucking with them though? It's bullshit that they would give him an ultimatum like that because they want to save their ratings. To block the biggest artist in the world at the moment out of getting nominated, especially with all the acclaim and overwhelming success that came from this era, purely because he didn't want to turn down an amazing opportunity is not only completely unreasonable, it shows a blatant disregard for anyone other than themselves. He was well within his rights to attempt and negotiate a way to do both. There's no valid reason why he couldn't do both. If they were more concerned about their ratings rather than honoring what the Grammys are supposed to be for (honoring the biggest and best that the industry had to offer each year) then the problem is with them, not him.
