After much ado, it’s official – the GRAMMY Awards 2022 has been postponed.
Full story below…
The ceremony was originally set to broadcast live from Crypto.com (formerly known as the Staples Center) on January 31.
However, the rapidly rising increase in the Omicron variant of COVID-19 cast those plans into doubt.
Now, reps for Music’s Biggest Night have issued a statement confirming that the show will not go on as planned. it 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 31 simply contains too many risks. We look forward to celebrating Music’s Biggest Night® on a future date, which will be announced soon.”
Some sources are suggesting a possible move to Las Vegas in the Spring could be on the cards. But no definitive plans have been shared.
