Everyone knew that Frank Ocean was skipping out on the Grammys because as he said, they’re old and out of touch.

Now, Drake and Kanye West’s names can be added to the list of super star big names (with numerous nominations) who won’t be in attendance on music’s so-called “biggest night.” It’s unclear why Kanye won’t be attendance but sites have mentioned that whenever he’s nominated against a white artist, he’s never won. He’s also questioned the academy and said that artists like Future, Young Thug and A$AP Rocky deserve more recognition.

As for Drake, he’ll be in Europe on the Boy Meets World Tour, so he won’t be stateside and obviously has no plans to jet back for the award ceremony, although he’s up for eight awards, including Album of the Year with Views. Of course, hip-hop artists very rarely win Album of the Year anyway.

Pop star Justin Bieber won’t be in attendance either because like Frank Ocean, he says the Grammys aren’t reflective of what matters to the youth.
