Following word earlier this week announcing Foo Fighters frontman Dave Grohl would be performing with Anderson .Paak and A Tribe Called Quest at the upcoming 59th annual Grammy Awards, the Recording Academy has now announced that Grohl will not take part in the performance. 

In a statement released Thursday (Feb. 2), The Recording Academy and AEG Ehrlich Productions apologized for the error and said their "announcement was made prematurely."

The statement reads: "Earlier this week, we announced that Dave Grohl would be performing with Anderson .Paak and A Tribe Called Quest prior to confirming all participants. Dave Grohl will not be part of this performance. Unfortunately, our announcement was made prematurely. On behalf of The Recording Academy and AEG Ehrlich Productions, we sincerely apologize to all parties involved for our error."

It is unclear whether Grohl will still be performing at the Grammy Awards. Billboard has reached out for clarification.
