The 2022 Grammy Awards will be held in Las Vegas
The 2022 Grammy Awards were originally supposed to be held on Jan. 31 at the Crypto.com Arena in Los Angeles. Due to the ongoing coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic, the Recording Academy postponed the award show.
On Jan. 18, the Recording Academy announced a rescheduled date for the 2022 Grammy Awards. Instead of taking place in LA, the award show was relocated to Las Vegas.
“The 64th Annual GRAMMY Awards® have been rescheduled and will now broadcast live from the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas on Sun, April 3 (8-11:30 p.m., live ET/5-8:30 p.m., live PT) on the CBS Television Network and will be available to stream live and on demand on Paramount+,” the Recording Academy wrote in a press release.
The Recording Academy’s statement continues, “Trevor Noah, Comedy Central’s Emmy® Award-winning “The Daily Show” host and comedian, will return as master of ceremonies for Music’s Biggest Night®. The show moved from its original date of Jan. 31 amid growing concerns surrounding the Omicron variant.”
