Grammy Awards postponed – The 2022 Grammy Awards have been rescheduled to April 3rd at the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas, the president and CEO of the Recording Academy Harvey Mason Jr said in a statement on January 18.

Grammy Awards postponed to April

The Grammys released a statement announcing that the 2022 Grammy Awards have been postponed to April 3 in Las Vegas at the MGM Grand Garden Arena. The awards show was originally set to take place on January 31 in Los Angeles but has since been postponed due to the uncertainty of the Omicron variant, which sparked a new wave of Covid-19 infections.

Comedian Trevor Noah will be hosting the televised ceremony that will be streamed live from the MGM Grand Garden Arena, and the nominations have already been announced back in November.

I’m so pleased to let you know that the 64th Annual GRAMMY Awards have been rescheduled and will now be broadcast live from the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas on Sunday, April 3 (8:00-11:30 PM, live ET/5:00-8:30 PM, live PT) on the CBS Television Network and will be available to stream live and on demand on Paramount+. 

Trevor Noah, the Emmy Award-winning host of “The Daily Show,” will return as master of ceremonies for Music’s Biggest Night. 

Additional details about the dates and locations of other official GRAMMY Week events, including the GRAMMY Awards Premiere Ceremony, MusiCares’ Person of the Year, and the Pre-GRAMMY Gala, will be announced soon. 

We are excited to take the GRAMMYs to Las Vegas for the very first time, and to put on a world-class show. 

From the moment we announced the postponement of the original show date, we have been inundated with heartfelt messages of support and solidarity from the artist community.

We are humbled by their generosity and grateful for their unwavering commitment to the GRAMMY Awards and the Academy’s mission.

We appreciate the leadership CBS and our production partners at Fulwell 73 have shown during these challenging weeks and the flexibility of everyone who worked toward this solution. 

Onward, 

Harvey

The 2021 Grammy Awards were also postponed due to the pandemic, with the subsequent ceremony being staged in March instead of January, in front of a small socially distanced audience.
