Likely much to Clinton supporter Katy Perry‘s chagrin, there won’t be any fireworks over N.Y.C. on election night.

Hillary Clinton‘s planned display has been canceled, according to the New York Police Department.

“They do have a permit for fireworks but, at this point, we believe the fireworks is canceled,” an NYPD spokesperson said during a press conference about Election Day security in Times Square on Monday. When pushed to reveal why the fireworks were canceled, NYPD chief of intelligence Tommy Galati declined to share further information.

Late last month, the New York Post reported that Clinton’s campaign had been planning the display over the Hudson River and near the Jacob K. Javits Center, where the Democratic candidate’s election night party is being held Tuesday.

The Post reported that the fireworks would last two minutes, and start as early as 9:30 p.m. Garden State Fireworks was hired to put on the show, according to an FDNY memo obtained by the Post.

The Javits Center, which is named after the former Republican senator, is an 840,000 square-foot venue that sits on the west side of Manhattan near the Hudson River. Most of the building is made of glass.

Trump famously offered to build the center in 1987 for $200 million if it could be named after his family but was turned down by the state, The New York Times reported.
