The 63rd Grammy Awards Rescheduled to March 14th
The 63rd Grammy Awards have been rescheduled from January 31st to March 14th. According to Variety, the descision was made due to the continued rise of COVID-19 numbers and was made by Recording Academy’s Harvey Mason Jr. among others including CBS. This year’s Grammy Awards is being hosted by Trevor Noah of “The Daily Show” and was originally supposed to be held at Staples Center in Los Angeles, California.
There is no official statement made on a location change or what the format of the ceremony will actually be. A public letter was released by the Grammy’s stating:
“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. Nothing is more important than the health and safety of those in our music community and the hundreds of people who work tirelessly on producing the show. We want to thank all of the talented artists, the staff, our vendors and especially this year’s nominees for their understanding, patience and willingness to work with us as we navigate these unprecedented times.”
