Late blooming Rhododendron that did not bloom

The buds are still on but did not open. I did not take them off in the fall. Should I remove now (early spring)?

I would leave it alone. The plant will shed them when it is ready to and removing them will unnecessarily expose the plant to the potential for disease.
