Grammy Awards Postponed To March 14 Due To Coronavirus Pandemic

This year’s Grammy Awards ceremony has been postponed to March 14 due to ongoing coronavirus pandemic.

“The deteriorating COVID situation in Los Angeles, with hospital services being overwhelmed, ICUs having reached capacity, and new guidance from state and local governments have all led us to conclude that postponing our show was the right thing to do,” a joint statement from the Recording Academy, CBS and show producers said.

Harvey Mason Jr., Chair & Interim President/CEO of the Recording Academy; Jack Sussman, Executive Vice President, Specials, Music, Live Events and Alternative Programming, CBS; and Ben Winston, Grammy Awards Executive Producer, Fulwell 73 Productions, said in the statement that they made the decision to reschedule the event after “thoughtful conversations with health experts, our host and artists scheduled to appear.”

The 63rd Grammy Awards ceremony was scheduled to take place at the Staples Center in Los Angeles on January 31, with The Daily Show’s Trevor Noah as host.

The event, produced by Fulwell 73 Productions, will air on CBS.

Artists in 83 categories are nominated for music industry’s biggest awards.
