The 2021 Grammys ceremony, which was slated to be held on January 31, has now been postponed due to COVID-19 concerns.
Music’s big night will now likely be held in March, Rolling Stone reported, citing organizers who have not confirmed a new date.
The CBS telecast was, like most award shows last year, going to be a limited affair, with many celebrities accepting from home or performing remotely rather than the typical venue, the Staples Center.
Beyoncé, who got nine nominations, led the pack of nominees, which also included Dua Lipa, Taylor Swift and Roddy Ricch. Trevor Noah was scheduled to host the January ceremony, but it’s unclear if he will still be the host for the future show.
Nominations proved to be somewhat scandalous this year as The Weeknd lashed out for being snubbed by the Academy despite his album, “After Hours,” having two No. 1 hits: “Heartless” and “Blinding Lights.”
“The Grammys remain corrupt. You owe me, my fans and the industry transparency…” the 2021 Super Bowl halftime performer tweeted.
The Academy later said it was because it was unsure which genre his music fell under.
A similar genre question was also proposed by Justin Bieber, who personally felt that “Changes” fell under the R&B category, rather than Pop for which it was nominated.
