Rihanna was supposed to perform at the Grammys last night but pulled out at the last minute.  According to TMZ,

Rihanna was battling bronchitis and is on medication. The singer actually arrived at the venue but did not walk the red carpet. She went to rehearsals and went home. Her doctors adviced her not to perform because it could permanently damage her vocal chords.

Her rep said in a statement,

“Based on Rihanna’s examination, after Grammy rehearsal today, Rihanna’s doctor put her on vocal rest for 48 hours because she was at risk of hemorrhaging her vocal chords.”

Hope she get better.
