The 64th Annual Grammy Awards, originally scheduled to air Monday, January 31st on CBS, have been postponed indefinitely.
The Recording Academy and CBS announced Wednesday (January 5th), “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.”
Last year, the 63rd Annual Grammy Awards were postponed from January 31st, 2021 to March 14th, 2021 due to a spike in Covid-19 cases.
