Grammy Awards moving from Los Angeles to Las Vegas
LOS ANGELES - The 64th annual Grammy Awards, which were originally scheduled for Jan. 31 at Crypto.com Arena in downtown Los Angeles but were postponed due to the COVID-19 surge, will now be held in Las Vegas on April 3, the Recording Academy has just announced.
The award show will now take place at the MGM Grand's Garden Arena.
The postponement was made after "careful consideration and analysis with city and state officials, health and safety experts" due to the "uncertainty surrounding the Omicron variant," Recording Academy said in a statement at the time.
