For the second consecutive year, the Grammy Awards have been postponed due to concerns over COVID-19.
The Recording Academy and CBS released a joint statement on Wednesday (Jan. 5) that said, “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.”
The 64th annual GRAMMY Awards was originally set to take place on Jan. 31 with a full audience at the Crypto.com Arena in downtown Los Angeles. However, the recent surge in the Omicron variant of Covid-19 caused the postponement.
No new date has been announced for the awards show.
