The 20201 edition of the Grammy Awards has been postponed to March 14.
The change in date from January 31 was necessitated by the surge in coronavirus cases and death in Los Angeles, United States where the event was to be held.
The decision was made following “thoughtful conversations with health experts, our host and artists scheduled to appear,” according to a statement from Recording Academy and CBS.

“The deteriorating COVID situation in Los Angeles, with hospital services being overwhelmed, ICUs having reached capacity, and new guidance from state and local governments have all led us to conclude that postponing our show was the right thing to do. Nothing is more important than the health and safety of those in our music community and the hundreds of people who work tirelessly on producing the show,” further reads the statement from Recording Academy interim CEO Harvey Mason Jr., CBS executive Jack Sussman and Grammys executive producer Ben Winston.
“We want to thank all of the talented artists, the staff, our vendors and especially this year’s nominees for their understanding, patience and willingness to work with us as we navigate these unprecedented times.”
