According to multiple reports, the biggest night in music which was scheduled for January 31, is being pushed back to at least March, in the wake of L.A’s skyrocketing number of serious Caronavirus cases surges.
The broadcast was already slated to have limited interactions between artists, presenters, and performers — included many celebrities accepting their awards from home and performing remotely rather than inside the venue. This year’s event was supported to be hosted at The Staple’s Center, and an exact new date has yet to be determined.

The 2021 Grammy’s show was going to be packed with huge performances and big celebrity appearances, including Beyonce who got nine nominations, and other top nominees like Taylor Swift, Roddy Ricch, and Dua Lipa.
At this point, Trevor Noah was scheduled to host the event, but it’s unclear if he will be able to handle the show on the new date in March.
As we reported, the Grammy’s faced huge backlash this year after snubbing The Weeknd with no nominations despite him having two #1 hits, ‘Heartless’ and ‘Blinding Lights.’ “The Grammys remain corrupt. You owe me, my fans, and the industry transparency…” he wrote following the announcement.
According to multiple reports, The Weeknd was in negotiations to perform at the Super Bowl AND The Grammy’s but the awards allegedly wanted him to perform exclusively on that broadcast. Instead, it was reported his team believes the snub could be connected to his decision to perform at the Super Bowl.
Interestingly, the academy later said it was because it was unsure which genre and category his music fell into. But, Weeknd wasn’t the only celebrity who had issues with the Grammy’s — Justin Bieber complained after ‘Changes’ fell under the R&B category rather than ‘Pop.’
