Did Ariana Grande go to the Grammys? We couldn't seem to pinpoint a certain high ponytail on the red carpet. 

The beauty mogul, expert impersonator and reigning queen of the best breakup songs, Grande has undeniably made a mark on the music scene this past year with bops like the sexy "positions" and even sexier "34+35." So, where was she, exactly? 

Did Ariana Grande go to the Grammys?

Several hours before the Grammys aired, Ari took to Instagram to give fans an update about her attendance. 

"Reflecting on an incredible process with so many creatives that I love and respect so deeply," she wrote. "I love this album so. It’s an honor to be recognized today alongside so many brilliant musicians and human beings that I love.”

Her heartfelt words appeared alongside a blurry behind-the-scenes image likely from the creation of Positions, an album that earned her two noms this year: Best Pop Vocal Album and Best Pop Solo Performance. She's credited on Doja Cat's Planet Her (Deluxe), which is in the running for album of the year. 

She concluded her writeup with "Have a beautiful time. I am celebrating all of you there today!”

This marks the second time Grande has skipped out on the biggest night in music. Though the singer hasn't offered an explanation for her decision, she did notably drop out of the 2019 event after a disagreement about her performance of "7 Rings." 

Considering we're big fans, and she stunned with one most iconic red carpet dresses of all time—the grey Giambattista Valli princess ballgown—we're definitely disappointed that she wasn't able to attend. 

Regardless, Positions will always be at the top of our playlist when we need a mood boost or something to pump us up at the gym. (Psst, this is Ariana Grande's workout routine, and it ain't easy.)
