The organizers of the 2021 Grammy Awards have postponed the event originally scheduled for January 31 due to concerns about the distribution of COVID-19.
Several sources told Rolling Stone magazine that organizers intend to hold the awards events somewhere in March, but no new date has been officially set.
The Grammys have already planned to do a limited show for 2021, without hearing and only allowing presenters and artists to be on site during the show.
Nominated artists would also not be allowed on the site, which would likely lead to a similar situation as the Emmies in 2020 where nominees appeared and accepted awards at a distance.
The 2021 Grammy nominations were led by Beyoncé who garnered nine nominations, while Dua Lipa, Taylor Swift and Roddy Ricch followed suit with six nominations each.
It is unclear whether Trevor Noah, the original host, is still hosting this year’s show, as representatives of Noah and the Recording Academy did not immediately respond to requests for comment.
