63rd Annual GRAMMY Awards Postponed Due To COVID-19

The most popular night to celebrate music looks like it might have to wait a little bit longer. It was just announced that due to the rapid rise of COVID-19 cases that are plaguing the Los Angeles area, the GRAMMY’s, which was scheduled to air on Sunday, Jan. 31 on CBS, is now postponed to March. 

The following statement was released just a short time ago:

“After thoughtful conversations with health experts, our host and artists scheduled to appear, we are rescheduling the 63rd Annual GRAMMY Awards® to be broadcast Sunday, March 14, 2021. The deteriorating COVID situation in Los Angeles, with hospital services being overwhelmed, ICUs having reached capacity, and new guidance from state and local governments have all led us to conclude that postponing our show was the right thing to do. Nothing is more important than the health and safety of those in our music community and the hundreds of people who work tirelessly on producing the show.
 
We want to thank all of the talented artists, the staff, our vendors and especially this year’s nominees for their understanding, patience and willingness to work with us as we navigate these unprecedented times.”
