The 64th annual Grammy Awards will now take place at the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas on Sunday, April 3. The show moved from its original date of Jan. 31 amid growing concerns surrounding the Omicron variant.
Along with the Grammy Awards shifting date, the CMT Music Awards will move from its originally scheduled date of Sunday, April 3 to a later date in April. Information about the date and location of the awards show will be announced in the coming weeks.
“Once we realized the need to move the Grammy Awards to a later date due to current health concerns, we came together quickly with our partners at the Recording Academy and CMT, to strategically reschedule these two incredible music events and utilize the full power of the ViacomCBS ecosystem to promote them,” says Jack Sussman, Executive Vice President, Specials, Music, Live Events & Alternative Programming, CBS. “Coming out of an exciting month of college basketball on CBS, we’re thrilled to continue our programming momentum with these two big live events for television in the spring.”
“We are excited to take the Grammys to Las Vegas for the very first time, and to put on a world-class show,” adds Harvey Mason Jr., CEO of the Recording Academy. “From the moment we announced the postponement of the original show date, we have been inundated with heartfelt messages of support and solidarity from the artist community. We are humbled by their generosity and grateful for their unwavering commitment to the Grammy Awards and the Academy’s mission. We appreciate the leadership CBS has shown during these challenging weeks and the flexibility of the CMTs and others who worked toward this solution.”
“What better way to introduce the CMT Music Awards to CBS than aligning with the Grammys during the network’s biggest month of music this April,” shares Margaret Comeaux, John Hamlin and Leslie Fram, executive producers, CMT Music Awards. “Our fans can expect another unforgettable night of music, and we look forward to announcing our new date and sharing more of what we have in store for this year very soon.”
The Grammy Awards will broadcast live from the MGM Grand Garden Arena on April 3 (8:00-11:30 PM, live ET/5:00-8:30 PM, live PT) on the CBS Television Network, and will be available to stream live and on demand on Paramount+. Trevor Noah will return as master of ceremonies for the evening.
