The Grammys have officially been postponed
Music’s biggest night has not set a new date
With the Omicron variant of COVID-19 setting a record of one million new cases in a day in America, the January 31 night for the Grammys has been postponed to a later date. Intended to be held at Crypto.com Arena in Los Angeles, the recent surge in cases has wreaked havoc on big events or concerts all over the country.
Once the nominations came out this year, we gave our predictions on the Best Rap Performance, Best Melodic Rap Performance, Best Rap Song, and Best Rap Album. All signs right now are pointing towards May or June for a scaled-down show.
A joint statement from the Recording Academy and CBS reads, “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 31 simply contains too many risks. We look forward to celebrating Music’s Biggest Night on a future date, which will be announced soon.”
