When it comes to the 2017 Grammys, one very famous and very nominated face is missing from the audience, the stage, and the red carpet. Where is Drake during the 2017 Grammys? Well, not there. And the reason is simple: He's too busy right now.
Drake is currently on his Boy Meets World Tour, which takes place all over Europe. On Sunday, Feb 12, the same day as the Grammys, Drake has a show at Manchester Arena in Manchester, England, so it's safe to say he won't be at the Grammys this year. In fact, Drake will be busy for quite a while longer; his Boy Meets World Tour wraps up March 28 in Amsterdam.
Even though he will surely be making a ton of fans happy at his concert on Sunday, he is missing a big night for himself — and potentially an even bigger night if he wins any of the eight awards he's nominated for. Drake is up for Record of the Year and Best Pop Duo/Group Performance for "Work" along with Rihanna; Album of the Year and Best Rap Album for Views; Best R&B Song for "Come See Me" along with PartyNextDoor; Best Rap/Sung Performance and Best Rap Song for "Hotline Bling"; and Best Rap Performance for "Pop Style."
If Drake does win any of the awards he's nominated for, perhaps we'll hear from him on social media — or maybe he'll have more to say about the Grammys in a future song.
