(Reuters) - Pop star Demi Lovato will replace Ariana Grande at this year's All-Star Game concert in Cincinnati on Saturday, Major League Baseball said Wednesday.

The 22-year-old Grande reportedly pulled out of the concert because she had wisdom teeth removed on Monday.

"We're disappointed that Ariana Grande cannot partake in the All-Star festivities, but wish her a speedy recovery," said Tony Petitti, MLB chief operating officer.

The concert will take place at Paul Brown Stadium in Cincinnati on Saturday.
