The 2022 Grammy Awards ceremony, originally scheduled for January 31, has been postponed, the Recording Academy and CBS announced today. The event has been rescheduled due to “the uncertainty surrounding the Omicron variant” of the coronavirus, the Recording Academy and CBS said in a joint statement. A new date has not yet been announced.
Last year’s Grammys were also postponed as a result of the ongoing pandemic. Trevor Noah was recently announced as the host of the 2022 Grammys, which would mark his second consecutive year helming the ceremony. The 2022 show had been scheduled to take place at Crypto.com Arena (formerly the Staples Center) in Los Angeles, with a live broadcast on CBS.
