The Grammys recently announced that this year’s awards show will be postponed.
“After careful consideration and analysis with city and state officials, health and safety experts, the artist community and our many partners, the Recording Academy and CBS have postponed the 64th Annual GRAMMY Awards Show. The health and safety of those in our music community, the live audience, and the hundreds of people who work tirelessly to produce our show remains our top priority. Given the uncertainty surrounding the Omicron variant, holding the show on January 31st simply contains too many risks. We look forward to celebrating Music’s Biggest Night on a future date, which will be announced soon,” said the Recording Academy and CBS in a joint statement.
A new date has not yet been given. This marks the second chapter of postponement for the Grammys. Last year the show was moved from late January to March 14, as The Rolling Stone reminds.
LA country where the show would have taken place saw a massive upsurge in COVID-19 confirmed cases- averaging at nearly 12 000 new confirmed cases daily.
