It was just a rumor a few days ago, with talks that the 2022 Grammy Awards would be postponed- and now it's official: The Recording Academy has confirmed that the 64th Annual Grammy Awards have been postponed, with a new date yet to be announced. The cerremony was set to take place at Crypto.com Arena in LA on January 31st.
The Recording Academy and CBS shared a joint statement on the Grammys website that reads:
“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.”
