Megan Thee Stallion has graced numerous award show stages over the past two years, but the American Music Awards won’t be one of them.
On Saturday (November 20), the H-Town Coach announced she was pulling out of her scheduled performance with K-Pop supergroup BTS at the show. The two were set to perform the “Butter (Remix),” which arrived in August and quickly went No. 1 on the Billboard Hot 100 chart.
“Hotties I was so excited to go to the @AMAs and perform with @BTS_official,” she tweeted. “But due to an unexpected personal matter, I can no longer attend. I’m so sad! I really can’t wait to hit the stage with my guys and perform #BTS_Butter real soon!”

AMA organizers confirmed the Grammy Award-winner would no longer be on the telecast but affirmed BTS would still perform “Butter” and a second song on Sunday night.
Megan is up for three awards at 2021 AMAs, including Favorite Hip Hop Album for Good News, Favorite Trending Song for “Body” and Favorite Female Hip Hop Artist.
The ceremony will be hosted by Cardi B and air on ABC. Cardi’s hosting duties mark a history-making moment for her as she will become only the second female rapper ever to host the ceremony and the first since Queen Latifah in 1995.
