The Grammy Awards, which honor top artists and performances in the music industry, has been moved to April 3, 2022 at Las Vegas’ MGM Grand Darden Arena.
The 64th Grammy Awards, which was supposedly scheduled for January 31, 2022 in Los Angeles, has been postponed to April 3, 2022 due to the COVID-19 Omicron variant which brought a new wave of infections.
The Recording Academy and CBS released a joint statement regarding the postponement:
“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.”
The official list of nominees was released last November 23, 2021. The event will still be streamed LIVE from the MGM Grand Arena.
