Grammy Awards 2022 – The 64th Annual Grammy Awards have been rescheduled for April 3 at the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas.
The ceremony — originally set for Jan. 31 at the Crypto.com Arena (formerly known as the Staples Center) in Los Angeles — was postponed due to the spread of the Omicron variant of COVID.
Comedian Trevor Noah is on board to host the Grammys broadcast, a splashy affair from the Recording Academy that typically lasts more than three hours on CBS. The show usually boasts a celebrity-heavy studio audience, big-name presenters and several music performances by major stars.
Grammy nominees in 86 categories were announced in November by the Recording Academy, including artists with Alabama ties such as Walker Hayes, Jason Isbell and the Blind Boys of Alabama.
Although winners in a handful of key categories are announced during the televised ceremony, most trophies are given out earlier in the day at an event known as the Premiere Ceremony. That event was planned for the afternoon of Jan. 31. at the Microsoft Theater in Los Angeles. An update on the Premiere Ceremony hasn’t been released yet, but it’s a safe bet that event has been rescheduled for April 3 in Las Vegas, as well.
