Grammy Awards 2022 Postponed Due to Omicron

The Grammy Awards were postponed Wednesday weeks before the planned Los Angeles ceremony over what organizers called ‘too many risks’ from the omicron variant, signaling what could be the start of another year of pandemic upheaval for awards season.

Grammy Awards 2022: The attempt at a back-to-normal show had been scheduled for Jan. 31st at the newly renamed Crypto.com Arena with a live audience and performances, but no new date is on the books.

The Recording Academy said it made the decision to postpone the ceremony after careful consideration and analysis with city and state officials, health and safety experts, the artist community, and our many partners.

“Given the uncertainty surrounding the omicron variant, holding the show on January 31st simply contains too many risks,” the academy said in a statement.
