Grammy Awards Postponed Indefinitely Due to the Pandemic
The rise of COVID cases has shaken the world once more.

The Grammy Awards have been officially postponed due to the prevalent coronavirus variant Omicron and the surge of COVID cases in the United States and throughout the world. According to Variety, a spokesperson for the United States Recording Academy confirmed the news, but no new date for the award presentation has been scheduled.
The Grammy Awards were planned to take place on January 31, 2022, at its regular site in downtown Los Angeles. However, a fresh wave of the epidemic prompted the Academy to postpone the awards event indefinitely due to public safety concerns. Although the event has yet to be rescheduled, everything else remains the same, including Trevor Noah of The Daily Show’s return as host.
The activities, on the other hand, should be moved to the week before the new date, once it is decided by the Academy. The Academy had planned a MusiCares Person of the Year event honoring Joni Mitchell for the 2022 Grammy Awards, as well as the Clive Davis Pre-Grammy Gala starring Sony Music CEO Rob Stringer. Many of last year’s biggest blockbusters in cinemas and on television have been reunited in the “Music For Visual Media” category of the 64th Grammy Awards.
The Grammy Awards isn’t the only event that has had to make last-minute alterations as a result of the new Omicron version. Positive tests of celebrities such as Seth Meyers of Late Night, Lupita Nyong’o, and Whoopi Goldberg have impacted TV and film productions all around Hollywood. While attempting to limit the virus, the Sundance Film Festival has announced that it would take place entirely online in 2022.
