Grammy Awards Postponed Due To Omicron Surge

For the second consecutive year, COVID concerns have caused the the 64th annual Grammy Awards show to be postponed.

A new date for the show, originally scheduled for Jan. 31, will be announced soon.

A joint statement from The Recording Academy and CBS 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 31 simply contains too many risks. We look forward to celebrating Music’s Biggest Night® on a future date, which will be announced soon.”

Other award shows will move forward including Sunday’s 2022 Golden Globes, but according to Page Six Style, there will be no red carpet.
