Grammy Awards 2021 will now take place in March, it has been confirmed.
The glitzy ceremony was due to take place on January 31st, but the Recording Academy was put under pressure to re-organise the event.
COVID cases in Los Angeles are surging, with the Academy deciding to move the ceremony to March 14th.
The decision was made following "thoughtful conversations with health experts" due to "the deteriorating COVID situation in Los Angeles."
As many have pointed out, the new date clashes with the Screen Actors Guild Awards - could another announcement be imminent...?
Current date for Grammy Awards 2021 is March 14th.
After thoughtful conversations with health experts, our host and artists scheduled to appear, we are rescheduling the 63rd #GRAMMYs to be broadcast Sunday, March 14, 2021.— Recording Academy / GRAMMYs (@RecordingAcad) January 5, 2021
