Grammys 2021 Reportedly Postponed Due to COVID Concerns

The 2021 Grammy Awards show was set to take place on January 31st. However, according to a new report by Rolling Stone, the ceremony is being postponed due to concerns over the spread of Covid-19.

While organizers have not confirmed a new date just yet, sources tell the news site that they are aiming to hold the event sometime in March. The postponement news comes as California climed to 2.5 million coronavirus cases. According to the Los Angeles Times, there have been more than 27,000 deaths in the state due to the pandemic.

The awards show — set to be hosted by The Daily Show’s Trevor Noah at the Staples Center in Los Angeles — was only going to have presenters and performers set to hit the stage in person. Like most award shows last year, it was going to be a limited affair, with many other celebrities accepting from home or performing remotely rather than the typical venue.

This year’s Grammy nominations were led by Beyoncé, who earned nine nods, as well as Dua Lipa, Taylor Swift, and Roddy Ricch, who each earned six nominations. This story is still developing. We will continue to keep you updated on this news.
