The 64th annual GRAMMY Awards has been rescheduled for April 3 in Las Vegas, the Recording Academy and broadcaster CBS said in a statement on Tuesday.
“We are excited to take the GRAMMYs to Las Vegas for the very first time and to put on a world-class show,” said Harvey Mason, Jr., Recording Academy CEO in the statement. “From the moment we announced the postponement of the original show date, we have been inundated with heartfelt messages of support and solidarity from the artist community. We are humbled by their generosity and grateful for their unwavering commitment to the GRAMMY Awards and the Academy’s mission. We appreciate the leadership CBS and our production partners at Fulwell 73 have shown during these challenging weeks and the flexibility of everyone who worked toward this solution.”
The awards had been set to take place on Jan. 31 in Los Angeles, but organizers postponed the event amid growing concerns surrounding the Omicron variant. Comedian Trevor Noah will host the ceremony, which will be televised and streamed live from the MGM Grand Garden Arena.
The CMT Awards, originally scheduled to air on CBS on the same day from the same venue are being moved to a yet to be determined date later in April.
“Once we realized the need to move the GRAMMY Awards to a later date due to current health concerns, we came together quickly with our partners at the Recording Academy and CMT, to strategically reschedule these two incredible music events and utilize the full power of the ViacomCBS ecosystem to promote them,” said Jack Sussman of CBS. “Coming out of an exciting month of college basketball on CBS, we’re thrilled to continue our programming momentum with these two big live events for television in the spring.”
The 64th GRAMMY Awards will broadcast live from the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas on Sunday, April 3 (8:00-11:30 PM, live ET/5:00-8:30 PM, live PT) on the CBS Television Network and will be available to stream live and on demand on Paramount+.
Additional details about the dates and locations of other official GRAMMY Week events, including the GRAMMY Awards Premiere Ceremony, MusiCares Person of the Year and the Pre-GRAMMY Gala will be announced soon.
