The Recording Academy announced that the 64th annual Grammy Awards will be rescheduled for April 3 in Las Vegas after the event was postponed due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
The awards had been initially set for Jan. 31 in Los Angeles, but was canceled after a surge in cases of the Omicron variant of COVID-19.
The event will be aired from from the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas on CBS and will also be available to stream on Paramount+. This will be the first time that the ceremony is held outside Los Angeles or New York since 1973, when it was held in Nashville.
Last year’s Grammy Awards was also postponed due to COVID-19 concerns, from Jan. 31 to Mar. 14.
The 64th annual Grammys features nominees including Justin Bieber, Billie Eilish and Olivia Rodrigo, and will be hosted by comedian Trevor Noah.
The Grammys are among several major entertainment industry events this month that were postponed due to a surge of COVID-19 cases in the U.S., including the Oscars, Critics Choice Awards, CMT Music Awards.
