For all the electronic dance music (EDM) fans out there hoping to see the new guy on the scene, Skrillex, mix it up with some of the veterans like [lastfm link_type=”artist_info”]Deadmau5[/lastfm] and David Guetta at this past weekend’s Grammy Awards, looks like you may have to wait until next time. But it’s not for lack of trying.

Apparently Skrillex was more than invited to the Grammy’s, he was also asked to perform on the worldwide stage but had to decline the offer dude to time constraints.

“I’m leaving for tour tomorrow and there wasn’t enough time for what I wanted to do, prepare,” revealed Skrillex. “This wasn’t enough time for me to where I felt it fit in right.”

And Skrill, who wanted to offer a worthwhile performance thought it best to forgo the offer until he was ready to put on one heck of a show!

“I feel like when you do a performance here, you want to be able to watch it in 10 years and be like, ‘I did this,'” agreed fellow DJ, [lastfm link_type=”artist_info”]A-trak[/lastfm].

“Maybe next time we’ll all do some ‘wickity-wickity,’” joked Skrillex, imitating a record scratch.

But something tells us that Skrillex isn’t too upset about missing his chance to perform on the “biggest night” because he still walked away with three trophies, including Best Electronic/Dance Album.

Currently Skirllex doesn’t have any upcoming Los Angeles performances but if he gets one, you know where to find out!

AMP out.
