The Recording Academy is likely to postpone the 64th annual Grammy Awards to a later date. The annual awards was originally set for Jan. 31 at Crypto.com Arena in Los Angeles. This is due to the current widespread of the COVID omicron variant.
This would be the second year in a row that the Grammys have been postponed due to COVID-19. Last year's show was originally set for Jan. 31, 2021, but on Jan. 5, 2021, it was delayed to March 14 due to a spike in COVID-19 cases in Los Angeles.
