Bad Bunny has tested positive for COVID-19.
On Sunday night, the 2020 American Music Awards aired, and while it had been teased that the Puerto Rican star was set to perform, he never actually did, leaving fans upset and confused.
But according to E! News, the the singer was forced to cancel his performance after testing positive for the coronavirus.
“Bad Bunny was originally set to perform his #1 global hit “Dákiti” with Jhay Cortez live for the first time at the AMAs,” the star’s reps said in a press release, “but unfortunately, the artist tested positive for COVID-19, which forced him to cancel the presentation.”
Bad Bunny himself teased the performance earlier this month, promising he would take the stage with Jhay Cortez for a world premiere performance of their duet “Dakiti”.
On Twitter, viewers at home patiently waited through the entire awards show broadcast, only to be disappointed when there was no performance.
