All eyes are on the American Music Awards 2019 taking place this weekend. While we are eager to see who takes home one of those AMA trophies, fans will also tune in to see Taylor Swift's performance. The buzz surrounding her performance has enhanced after her battle against Big Machine. A quick recap: Taylor reached out to her fans after she said that Big Machine wasn't allowing Taylor to perform her older songs. Soon after, Scooter Braun and Scott Borchetta's music label issued a clarification. 

While the musical drama continues to unfold, a source close to the Lover singer has revealed that Taylor had to replan her AMA performance. The insider told Us Weekly that the singer had to replan because the music label hasn't waived off the re-record restrictions. "Taylor has had to plan a different performance for the AMAs because Big Machine has not waived the re-record restriction provision and they have claimed the re-broadcast would be a breach of her contract,” the source explains. “Our show is taped to air later in over 200 countries, is available on video on demand and posts on YouTube after the live performance airs," the grapevine adds. 

The new development comes amidst a statement from Big Machine Label Group revealing that they have come to an agreement with Dick Clark Productions (the team behind AMA 2019) which allows Taylor to perform her songs. "The Big Machine Label Group and Dick Clark Productions announce that they have come to terms on a licensing agreement that approves their artists’ performances to stream post show and for re-broadcast on mutually approved platforms. This includes the upcoming American Music Awards performances," the statement reads. 

"It should be noted that recording artists do not need label approval for live performances on television or any other live media. Record label approval is only needed for contracted artists’ audio and visual recordings and in determining how those works are distributed," the company added. 

However, Dick Clark Productions has said that they never authorized Big Machine's statement. They have asked the label to talk to Taylor Swift on the subject.
