2021 Grammy Awards postponed amid growing COVID-19 anxieties
After releasing its nominees in late November, the 63rd Annual Grammy Awards has called off its 2021 ceremony with only three weeks remaining until the annual event. The show was scheduled for January 31 at its usual venue space inside Los Angeles’ STAPLES Center. Sources close to Rolling Stone cited concerns over California’s brutal COVID-19 spread as the main reason behind the postponement. The state initially boasted the lowest numbers in the United States with virtually no spread. However, December 2020 presented a rapid spike for the Orange Coast state. It now leads the country with 2.55 million cases and just over 28,000 deaths at the time of writing, although it’s worth noting that California is the most populous US state.
Sources also said that the Grammys are currently hopeful about a rescheduled night in March, although no other details have yet been released beyond details that the Academy has laid out a ground plan for no live audience. Last year’s awards ceremony went off as scheduled on January 26, 2020, just before the pandemic shut down the US in March last year, although the virus was documented to have been in the States since late 2019.
