2022 Grammys postponed – the ceremony for this year’s Grammy Awards have been postponed indefinitely due to the uncertainties caused by the Omicron variant and the ongoing Covid-19 pandemic.

2022 Grammys postponed

The 64th Grammy Awards for this year have been postponed infinitely due to the pandemic, with the official Grammy Awards website releasing a statement announcing the indefinite delay of the ceremony. This is in response to the growing safety concerns surrounding Covid-19, as the Omicron variant continues to wreak havoc across the globe.

The statement cited the safety of the live audience, the people who “work tirelessly to produce our show” and those in the music community as being their top priority. The announcement was made jointly by the Recording Academy and the broadcasters of the awards show, CBS. At the time of writing, a return date for the ceremony has yet to be confirmed.

“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.” 

Grammy Awards Statement

The delay of this year’s Grammys marks the second year that the awards show has been pushed back due to the pandemic, with last year’s Grammys being pushed back from January to March due to an increase in cases. However, it is certainly nice to see the producers taking the safety of those involved in the show seriously.
