Recording Academy, CBS issue joint statement on postponement of GRAMMY Awards Ceremony

With an uptick in infections due to the surging Omicron variant of the Coronavirus, the Recording Academy and CBS have decided to postpone this year’s GRAMMY Awards ceremony. The GRAMMY’s aren’t the only first quarter casualty, the NFL could be looking for a new home for this year’s Super Bowl as numbers in Los Angeles continue to spike. While music and entertainment lovers await the announcement of a future date, re-visit this year’s nominees.

“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.”
