The 64th annual Grammy Awards ceremony has been rescheduled and a new venue announced.
The news came Tuesday that the show has been rescheduled and will now broadcast live from the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas on Sunday, April 3, from 8-11:30 p.m. on CBS (it also will be available to stream live and on demand on Paramount+). It’s the first time the show will take place in Las Vegas.
The show was initially billed for January 31st at the Crypto.com Arean (formerly known as the Staples Center) in Los Angeles but was postponed as the Omicorn variant sparked a new wave of COVID-19 infection.
Trevor Noah is still set to return as host. Additional details about the dates and locations of other Grammy events, including the Grammy Awards Premiere Ceremony, MusiCares Person of the Year and the Pre-Grammy Gala, will be announced soon.
The news came via a joint announcement from the Recording Academy, CBS and CMT. As a result of the Grammy date change, the CMT Awards will now move from its initially scheduled date of April 3 to a later date in April.
This year will mark the first time the CMT Awards will air on CBS.
