The 2021 GRAMMYs have been rescheduled for March 14.
Originally scheduled for January 31st, 2021, The Grammys have officially been postponed due to concerns over the spread of Covid-19.
In a statement released Tuesday evening, organizers, citing “thoughtful conversations with health experts, our host and artists scheduled to appear,” confirmed that they’ll stage the award show on Sunday, March 14th. The statement was signed by Harvey Mason, Jr., chair and interim president and CEO of the Recording Academy; Jack Sussman, executive vice president of specials, music, live events and alternative programming for CBS and Grammy Awards executive producer Ben Winston.
The Recording Academy’s decision to move the event to later this year came one day after SAG-AFTRA – the union representing actors and other industry professionals – and the Producers’ Guild recommended a “temporary hold on in-person production.”
The event had been set to take place at the Staples Center in Los Angeles on January 31, with “The Daily Show” host Trevor Noah acting as host.
