The 2021 Golden Globe Awards and Academy Awards have been postponed for COVID-19, but the Grammy Awards, the biggest night in music, were still available on their originally scheduled dates. It has been decided that the 63 annual Grammy Awards will not be delayed as the amount of music released during the pandemic increases. Later, as the number of cases of COVID increased in Los Angeles, where the Grammy Awards were held, the Recording Academy had to rethink its decision. Variety confirmed that the award show was postponed on January 5th.
The decision was based on health and travel concerns, sources told Variety.
Initially, the show continued as planned, partly due to the abundance of music released during the quarantine. Harvey Mason, Jr., President and CEO of the Recording Academy, said he didn’t want to delay the date because so much great music was released as the amount of music released during the pandemic is actually increasing. He told Variety in June. We also have time to hold such shows, know what’s happening every year, and we all sit together and watch great shows when there is a lot of uncertainty and anxiety. I think it’s important and useful to know that art. ..
In September, Mason told Variety that the next ceremony would be a spectacular show. Obviously, this year is a very unique year. We watched all the shows very carefully and talked about some of the people who put them together: the creative and business aspects. I think there were some good examples of how to present music and awards at these shows, but I think there are other ways we can do it in a completely different way.
Before the big show, here’s everything we know about the 2021 Grammy Awards, including new dates and candidates!

Does the 2021 Grammy Awards have a live audience?
Probably not. Mason has previously revealed to variety that the show aims to be 100% live without pre-recorded elements. He is considering staples for a limited audience, but it seems less likely to happen. Staples with live performances and no spectators. Or, he said, with some items from elsewhere, it’s a bit more virtual. Obviously we want this to be safe for everyone, so we are still waiting for contact from our network and venue partners and our medical professionals.
Who is the organizer of the 2021 Grammy Awards?
Trevor Noah will host the Grammy Awards for the first time. I’m very disappointed that the Grammys refused to let me sing or be nominated for the best pop album, but I’m happy to host this auspicious event. The Daily Show organizers said in a statement. Having been nominated for a Grammy Award only once, I know the pain of not winning, so I think it’s the perfect person to compete with all the great artists who won’t win overnight. (This is a metaphorical shoulder. I’m not trying to catch Corona.) See you at the 63rd Grammy Awards!
