Grammy Awards Moved April 3rd in Las Vegas

Update : 19 Jan 2022, 10:10

The 64th annual Grammy Awards will now take place in Las Vegas, Nevada, USA on April 3. The star-studded event will be held at the MGM Grand Garden Arena.

The award was scheduled to take place on January 31st in downtown Los Angeles, but the organizers abandoned that date as a variant of Omicron created a new wave of COVID-19 infections.

“We are excited to take the GRAMMYs to Las Vegas for the very first time, and to put on a world-class show,” Harvey Mason Jr., CEO of the Recording Academy, said in the statement. “From the moment we announced the postponement of the original show date, we have been inundated with heartfelt messages of support and solidarity from the artist community. We are humbled by their generosity and grateful for their unwavering commitment to the GRAMMY Awards and the Academy’s mission.”

“The Daily Show” host Trevor Noah is scheduled to host the show.

Musician Jon Batiste is nominated for 11 Grammys, more than any other artist. He received nominations for album of the year for "We Are" and record of the year with "Freedom."

Justin Beiber, H.E.R, and Doja Cat are among the top-nominated artists with eight nominations each.

The 2022 Grammy Award nominations were announced in November.
