Grammy Awards 2022 postponed so far
As a boatload of new varieties of Coronavirus has begun to sweep through nations around the world, the Grammy Awards have officially decided to postpone their annual awards ceremony for the second year in a row.
As you may or may not remember, the 2021 Grammy Awards, scheduled to be held on 31 January 2021, had to be pushed back 6 weeks to 14 March following a reported increase in coronavirus outbreak.
This year, the 2022 Grammy Awards, which were also to be held on January 31, 2022, have recently been postponed so far. A new date has not yet been announced, however Variations Sources claim that Grammy executives are considering hosting the star-studded show around April or May. The annual awards ceremony was to be held at Los Angeles’ own Crypto.com Arena, formerly known as the Staples Center. But given planning issues, including Grammy’s 10-day-plus venue lockdown before the event, the Grammys could possibly be moved to another location this year.
The postponement comes after many artists canceled their performances or complained about the potential health hazards that the event could cause. The closed area can be a breeding ground for the airborne virus.
The Admissions Academy and CBS made the following joint statement:
“After careful consideration and analysis with city and state officials, health and safety experts, the artist community and our many partners, The Admissions Academy and CBS has 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, it simply carries too many risks to hold the show on January 31st. We look forward to celebrating Music’s biggest night on a future date, which will be announced soon. ”
Unlike last year’s awards show, Grammy’s is not planning to call back to its usually lavish event. Instead, The Admissions Academy and CBS wants to bring back the usual Grammy experience with performances, a live audience and the return of the entire Grammy Week events, which were canceled in 2021.
After looking at the finished Grammy nomination list published in November 2021, it makes sense why Grammy executives want to return to their usual glitter-and-glam atmosphere. Notable artists such as Justin Bieber, Doja Cat, HER, Billie Eilish, Olivia Rodrigo, Lil Nas X, Taylor Swift, Kanye West, BTS, Silk Sonic, Saweetie, Baby Keem, and many more have been nominated for awards this year. Such a list will definitely cause a massive turnout for the company, which already earns millions of dollars at the event annually.
More information about the event will be given soon.
