The 63rd annual GRAMMYs were supposed to take place on January 31 in Los Angeles but now, COVID-19 is becoming a huge obstacle. According to sources close to Rolling Stone, the awards show has now been postponed due to concerns of the virus.
Sometime in March is when the new date for the GRAMMYs is looking to take place. Before this announcement, the ceremony had already planned to not have an audience and only allow presenters and performers. Surprisingly, nominees wouldn’t have been allowed in the building.
Beyonce led the way with the most categories at nine in total. e Dua Lipa, Taylor Swift and Roddy Ricch came in at second place with six each. There has also been controversy as far as snubs go. The Weeknd shockingly didn’t receive any nominations after the huge 2020 he had. He went on to call the GRAMMYs “corrupt” and how he and fans deserve transparency. Teyana Taylor also called out the show for not having any female artists in the Best R&B Album category.
Los Angeles has been fighting a lot of COVID-19 cases so this postponement appeared to have been coming to many. Many fans believe that the GRAMMYs could have relocated to a different city but it looks like the idea of trying to make a March date work is the game plan right now.
