The Recording Academy and CBS have issued a joint statement earlier this week saying that the 2022 Grammy Awards would be switched to an April show in Las Vegas. However, latest remarks from the Recording Academy and CBS came forth just a couple of weeks after the ceremony had been suspended due to an increase in omicron cases across the United States. On top of that, according to the joint statement, this year’s Grammy Awards will be broadcasted live on April 3 from the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas. The show has been initially scheduled to take place at the newly renamed Crypto.com Arena in LA on January 31, though, organizers later decided against spacing out the show citing there were “too many risks” due to an omicron-surge across the United State.
Adding that the show has been an attempt to get back to a post-pandemic normalcy for the Grammys with a presence of live audiences, the Recording Academy and CBS said in the joint statement, “…decision to postpone the ceremony followed careful consideration and analysis with city and state officials, health and safety experts, the artist community and our many partners”.
