The 'Lover' singer's team reportedly contacted the prizegiving organizers days before the live event to get a guarantee that she will win the Song of the Year prize.

AceShowbiz - Taylor Swift reportedly chose to skip the Grammy Awards last Sunday, January 26 because she wasn't guaranteed to win a prize.

According to the New York Post's gossip column Page Six, the singer's team talked to show organisers a few days before the live event and said that Swift would only attend and perform if she was guaranteed to win the Song of the Year prize.

However, they were reportedly informed the winners are not known to those planning the show, and they would not bend the rules for her.

"(Her team) called and wanted to be assured that she would win the Grammy. And while it wasn't an explicit demand, they certainly were fishing to find out if Taylor was a winner. It was understood in the conversation that if she's not winning, she's not coming to the Grammys," one insider said.

Another shared: "It's widely known in the industry that (Swift's team) called to find out if she was getting a Grammy, they wouldn't tell her, so she didn't go. It's not uncommon (for an artist) to want to know. And everyone knows Taylor loves to win, win, win."

However, a spokesperson for the star called the allegations "100 per cent false and laughable", adding, "She just didn't go to the Grammys. You guys need to calm down."

Swift was also nominated for Best Pop Vocal Album and Best Pop Solo Performance. She lost Song of the Year to Billie Eilish's "Bad Guy", while Eilish also won Best Pop Vocal Album with "When We All Fall Asleep, Where Do We Go?", and Lizzo scooped Best Pop Solo Performance for "Truth Hurts".
