The Grammys are known for their tributes to iconic artists and performances, and this year was no exception. During the show, there was a special hip-hop tribute featuring some of the biggest names in the genre. However, it turns out that Will Smith was originally set to make a surprise appearance during the tribute, according to Questlove.
Questlove, the drummer for The Roots, posted a tweet about the surprise appearance. He said that Will Smith was supposed to be part of the tribute, but had to drop out at the last minute. He said that Smith was going to join the stage with his son, Trey Smith, and the two of them were going to perform a medley of Smith’s hits.
The tribute was already packed with performances from some of the biggest names in hip-hop, including DJ Khaled, Cardi B, Meek Mill, and more. However, the addition of Will Smith would have made the performance even more special.
Unfortunately, it was not meant to be and Smith had to drop out of the performance at the last minute. Questlove’s tweet did not give any details as to why Smith had to drop out, but it is likely that he had a scheduling conflict.
The performance was still a success without Smith, but it would have been even more special with him on stage. It is a shame that Smith had to drop out, but hopefully he will be able to make an appearance at a future Grammy Awards show.
