Grammys 2021 Edition Postponed Till March!
Written by MAX FM on January 6, 2021
The 2021 Grammys has been postponed due to coronavirus concerns, say the organisers. The ceremony, one of the music industry’s biggest awards, was due to take place on 31 January 2021.
The event will now take place on 14 March, due to rising infection numbers in Los Angeles and California. Beyoncé, Taylor Swift, and Dua Lipa led the nominations for this years awards, which were announced in November.
“Nothing is more important than the health and safety of those in our music community and the hundreds of people who work tirelessly on producing the show,” said a statement from the Recording Academy, which runs the Grammys.
It is unclear whether host Trevor Noah will still take part in this year’s award ceremony.
The Grammys’ new date clashes with the previously-announced Screen Actors’ Guild awards.
The actors union said it was “extremely disappointed” by the scheduling conflict.
“We announced the same date for the SAG Awards last July with the intent to give the greatest possible scheduling consideration for other awards shows,” it said in a new statement. “We expect the same consideration from sister organizations throughout the industry.”
It said it was in talks with the Recording Academy in an attempt to resolve the situation at hand.
This year’s Grammys were already due to be a virtual event, in line with other recent award shows, such as the MTV VMAs and the Billboard Awards.
Other major shows, including the Oscars, the Golden Globes, and the Brit Awards have already been postponed.
