2021 Grammys postponed due to Covid-19 surge

The 2021 Grammys, originally scheduled for January 31st, have been postponed due to concerns over the spread of Covid-19.

Organizers have not confirmed a new date, but sources say they are aiming to hold the event sometime in March.

The Grammys had already planned on a limited show for 2021, forgoing an audience completely and only allowing presenters and performers on-site during the show. 

Nominated artists wouldn’t have been allowed on-site either, likely leading to a situation similar to the 2020 Emmys where nominees appeared and accepted awards remotely.

The 2021 Grammy nominations were led by Beyoncé who picked up nine nominations, while Dua Lipa, Taylor Swift and Roddy Ricch followed behind with six nods each. It’s unclear if original host Trevor Noah is still set to host this year’s show.
