    The 63rd Annual GRAMMY Awards has been postponed. Rolling Stone first reported the news.

    The 2021 ceremony was scheduled for January 31 originally in Los Angeles and to be hosted by Trevor Noah. But it looks like musicians and fans have to wait. Just like other major award shows like Golden Globes, Oscars, and SAG Awards, the Grammys will be rescheduled at a later date due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

    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 and Fulwell 73 Productions issued a joint statement stating, “After thoughtful conversations with health experts, our host and artists scheduled to appear, we are rescheduling the 63rd Annual GRAMMY Awards to be broadcast Sunday, March 14, 2021. 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.”

    The 2020 GRAMMY Awards was made possible in person last year because it took place before the pandemic lockdowns started. However, it was undoubtedly one of the saddest because it happened the same day that the world lost NBA legend Kobe Bryant and those with him when they’re helicopter crashed in Calabasas, California.

    As far as the 2020 GRAMMY Awards is concerned, it will be aired live on Sunday, March 14 on CBS and CBS All Access. Some of the award show’s nominees include Beyonce who is the most-nominated artist with nine nominations in total though she hasn’t released a new album. She’s followed by Taylor Swift, Dua Lipa, and Roddy Ricch with six nods each. There are also many surprises and snubs in this year’s award show.
