2022 Grammys Postponed Due to Omicron
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. Find the full statement below.
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.
Last November, the Recording Academy announced its list of 2022 Grammy nominations. Olivia Rodrigo and Billie Eilish both earned seven nods, with Doja Cat, Justin Bieber, and H.E.R. all receiving eight. Jon Batiste nabbed the most nominations, with 11 in total.
