Initially scheduled for January 31, 2021, the Recording Academy has announced the 63rd annual GRAMMY Awards ceremony will now take place on Sunday, March 14, 2021.
Slated to be held at the STAPLES Center in Los Angeles, the GRAMMYs have called on late-night personality and comedian Trevor Noah to host music’s biggest night. With Coronavirus cases and deaths at a daily all-time high in the US, Los Angeles is especially seeing a rise in cases and hospitalizations.
Due to the ongoing Coronavirus pandemic, the live & touring, entertainment and show business have taken a hit, with artists and their teams heavily depending on revenue from touring and live events.
In some cases, it has been said that, “the show must go on” or that people are relying on entertainment now more than ever. COVID-19 has caused other awards shows to adapt, creating virtual audiences or no audience at all. Ceremonies and “live events” that have taken place during the pandemic include the American Music Awards, Billboard Music Awards, Primetime Emmy Awards, E! People’s Choice Awards, MTV’s Video Music Awards, MTV EMA’s, and most recently Dick Clark’s New Year’s Rockin’ Eve with Ryan Seacrest, among others.
Other awards ceremonies to postpone their 2021 editions thus far are The Academy Awards (Oscars), the Golden Globe Awards, and the Screen Actors Guild Awards. The SAG Awards are tentatively scheduled to also take place on March 14 on TNT/TBS, the same night as the GRAMMY Awards’ new night.
This year, Beyonce leads with nine nominations, the Weeknd has been snubbed for his massive song “Blinding Lights” and album After Hours, and the Best Electronic/Dance Song, Best Electronic/Dance Album, and Best Remixed Recording (non-classical) categories leave little to be desired.
Tune in on Sunday, March 14 to watch the 63rd annual GRAMMY Awards at 8pm EST on CBS.
