The Grammy Awards have been officially postponed.
The 64th annual Grammy Awards show, which was scheduled to take place later this month in the United States, has been postponed owing to coronavirus, according to organizers.
According to a statement from the Recording Academy and CBS, the Omicron variant’s uncertainty implies that it “just entails too many hazards.”
The event, which is known as music’s greatest night, was set to take place in Los Angeles on January 31.
The event will take place at a later date to be announced soon, according to the organizers.
Their major goal was the health and safety of the music community, the live audience, and hundreds of personnel, they stressed.
With 11 nominations, jazz pianist Jon Batiste leads the pack, followed by Olivia Rodrigo, Lil Nas X, Billie Eilish, Justin Bieber, and Doja Cat.
It comes after the Sundance Film Festival in Utah canceled all in-person activities because of Omicron’s fast spread.
All of the festival’s independent film premieres and events will be streamed live online, according to the organizers.
After soaring virus counts in Los Angeles and the state of California caused the Grammy Awards to be postponed until March, the 2021 Grammy Awards became a hybrid in-person and online event.
