Grammy Awards, the first of the big three networks’ major music Awards stands postponed indefinitely due to the surge in omicron cases worldwide. The 64th GRAMMY Awards, which were scheduled for Jan 31, 2022 are now pushed further. However, no new date has been yet announced by the Recording Academy and CBS.
The announcement was made jointly by The Recording Academy and CBS on the Grammy Awards Website which read,
“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 31st simply contains too many risks. We look forward to celebrating Music’s Biggest Night on a future date, which will be announced soon.”
A statement from The Recording Academy said that holding the show on January 31 simply contains ‘Too many risks’ and that it would announce a rescheduled date soon. The 2022 edition was expected to see a return to the usual arena-style celebration at Los Angeles’ Staples Center.
Hollywood Popstars and newbies including Justin Bieber, Billie Eilish and Olivia Rodrigo are among the key nominees for the 64th music awards gala.
