The Grammy Awards have been postponed indefinitely due to coronavirus concerns, as expected. As of now, no new date has been set. While the 2022 show was set to take place on Jan. 31 in front of a full house at its traditional venue, the Crypto.com Arena (formerly known as the Staples Center) in downtown Los Angeles, the recent Covid – 19 surge has caused the postponement or cancellation of multiple events across the country. According to sources, despite the fact that the Crypto.com Arena has a basketball or hockey game or a concert scheduled nearly every night until mid-April, enough artists and executives expressed reservations about appearing to persuade the Academy to postpone the show. “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 Recording Academy and its television partner,CBS, said in a joint statement issued on Wednesday. Our top priority continues to be 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. Given the uncertainty surrounding the Omicron variant, the show on January 31st is simply too risky. We are excited to celebrate Music’s Biggest Night on a future date that will be announced soon.” Grammy Week events, such as the MusiCares Person of the Year concert honoring Joni Mitchell and the Clive Davis Pre – Grammy Gala honoring Sony Music CEO Rob Stringer, are also likely to be moved to the week before the new date. Trevor Noah of “The Daily Show” is still set to host the Grammys this year. Source: Variety.
