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.
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.
