According to multiple reports, Music’s Biggest Night will not air on Sunday, January 31, due to COVID-19 concerns. If you are unaware, the coronavirus cases in Los Angeles have increased. It might happen in March.
The Grammys had already planned on a limited show for 2021, forgoing an audience completely and only allowing presenters and performers on-site during the show. Nominated artists wouldn’t have been allowed on-site either, likely leading to a situation similar to the 2020 Emmys where nominees appeared and accepted awards remotely, Jon Blinstein at Rolling Stone wrote.
The 2021 Grammy nominations were led by Beyoncé who picked up nine nominations, while Dua Lipa, Taylor Swift and Roddy Ricch followed behind with six nods each. It’s unclear if original host Trevor Noah is still set to host this year’s show. (Reps for Noah and the Recording Academy did not immediately reply to requests for comment.)
