There’s some Grammy update news:
CLive Davis’s pre-Grammy dinner, which usually takes place the night before Music’s Big Night, may be up in the air.
I’m now hearing that everything is in play. Davis and the Recording Academy are said to “considering all options.”
Right now the Grammys are moving to Las Vegas on April 3rd. They will be preceded by Musicares Person of the Year dinner, also in Vegas, presumably also at the MGM Grand.
The Vegas move is mandated by the pandemic. Harvey Mason and his gang are taking all precautions. This is not the time to go into the Staples Center/LA Convention Center with thousands of people. Mason is being smart, smart, smart.
But Davis’s much smaller event could be held at the Beverly Hilton mid week before the Grammys, right after the Oscars. Indeed, Davis could field a lot of movie stars who are in town for the Oscars. And all the LA music industry people who don’t want to make the Vegas trip could have a Grammy experience. Sounds good to me.
Nothing is confirmed. Everyone waits with baited breath. So hold on, music fans! This is a very unusual year.
