The 64th Annual Grammy Awards have been rescheduled and will now broadcast live from the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas on Sun, April 3, organizers announced this week.
Trevor Noah, Comedy Central’s Emmy Award-winning “The Daily Show” host and comedian, will return as master of ceremonies for Music’s Biggest Night.
The show moved from its original date of Jan. 31 amid growing concerns surrounding the Omicron variant. In early January the Recording Academy and CBS released a joint statement announcing the postponement of the show and their reasoning concerning the current state of the pandemic:
“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.”
The star-studded music industry awards ceremony was also postponed last year due to concerns over Covid. In 2021, the show was scheduled for January 31, 2021 and was subsequently pushed to March 14, 2021 because of a huge increase in Covid cases in Los Angeles.
