Rapper Drake has scrapped a planned performance at the Grammy Nominations Concert in Los Angeles due to a scheduling conflict.

A representative for the hitmaker has revealed that something came up at the last minute, forcing the Canadian star to change his plans.

The rep tells Tmz.com, "Unfortunately, due to scheduling complications, Drake will no longer be performing... (He's) currently in the middle of his nationwide Would You Like A Tour? tour and sincerely apologises to his fans that he can’t be there."

Drake has a show in Missouri on Saturday (07Dec13).

The big show won't be short of headliners - Lorde, Katy Perry and Taylor Swift have been added to the line-up.
