Grammy Awards Moving from January 31st Broadcast Thanks to COVID, New, Unspecified Date
I told you on December 24th that the Grammy Awards would be moving from January 31st.
I also told you a few days ago that the New York chapter of the Recording Academy had postponed their annual toast cocktail party set for January 10th.
Now comes the official word that the Grammys are being reset for– no date specified. This is the surprise since I thought they would definitely give a replacement time. But nope, nothing, it’s just in the wilderness. This has a lot to do with availability of the Staples Center, the progress in resolving COVID, and so on.
“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.”
