And The 2021 Grammy Award Goes To? Stay Tuned, Because This Year’s Show Is Postponed.

The Recording Academy told The Associated Press on Tuesday, Jan 5. 2021, that the 63rd annual Grammy Awards will no longer take place on its original Jan. 31, 2021, date in Los Angeles and will broadcast in March due to a recent surge in coronavirus cases and deaths.

The latest entertainment casualty of the pandemic is the 2021 Grammy Awards, as it was announced that the show, originally planned for Jan. 31, is being postponed, possibly to sometime in March.

Simply put, it’s almost impossible to celebrate “Music’s Biggest Night” when crowds in Los Angeles are forbidden. The event has made its home at the Staples Center in downtown L.A., usually with 18,000 screaming fans watching the biggest stars in music performing and being honored.

One of the alternative plans for this year was to have the event staged at multiple music venues around the world, to try to pump some life into an industry that has been hammered in 2020 because of the coronavirus.

The winter and spring months are filled with award shows for music, film and television, and the next couple of big ones to keep your eyes on to see if they happen are the Golden Globe Awards, scheduled for Feb. 28, and the Academy Awards, which hopefully will be able to happen with a live audience on April 25.
