UPDATE Grammy Awards Postponed from January 31st to? MusiCares, Clive Davis Virtual Dinner May Still Go On


The Grammy Awards and MusiCares will not happen weekend of January 31st. The pandemic is to blame. They may return in March. MusiCares will be, as I described, nonetheless when it happens. Person of the Year is every one at the Recording Academy for staying safe.

The pandemic in Los Angeles made it impossible even to have a virtual Grammy Award show. Postponing theGrammys means also MusiCares’ Person of the Year dinner isn’t happening.

But Clive Davis’s pre-Grammy dinner and show may go on virtually anyway on January 30th. I’m told it’s still being decided.

All of this could move to March after the Golden Globes on February 28th. The other big awards show set for March 7th is the Critics Choice Awards. The Oscars are on April 25th. If they ask me, the Grammys should come the week before.

Maybe while we wait the Grammys can figure out how to reward The Weeknd with some love and statues.

What a year! Nothing is written in ink. “Stay tuned” applies to everything!
