Lorde was reportedly the only nominee up for Album of the Year not offered a solo performance at this year's Grammys show, and her mother Sonja Yelich is not here for it.

The Kiwi songstress is the only female nominated in the category, for her second album Melodrama. She's up against Kendrick Lamar, Jay-Z, Childish Gambino and Bruno Mars.

Variety magazine reports all but Jay-Z and Lorde will perform at the event, with the 'Green Light' singer the only one not offered a solo spot.

Yelich took to Twitter to post a photo of a circled paragraph from a New York Times article on the subject, which acknowledged Lorde's achievement and snub in the one sentence. She captioned it: "This says it all."

Sources close to the songstress told Variety Lorde was offered a performance as part of a Tom Petty tribute with other artists, which the singer declined.

Lorde was nominated for four Grammy Awards in 2014 and won two, Song of the Year and Best Pop Solo Performance for her song 'Royals', which she performed on the show that year. She was 17 years old at the time.
