The 63rd Annual GRAMMY Awards

The 63rd Annual GRAMMY Awards Has Been Rescheduled to March 14, 2021, Due to the Coronavirus

The Recording Academy has announced that this year’s 63rd Annual GRAMMY Awards, which was originally scheduled to air and take place on January 31st, has been pushed back to March. As with many entertainment and sporting events since last year, the awards ceremony was pushed back due to the coronavirus pandemic.

A joint statement was released from Harvey Mason Jr., Chair & Interim President/CEO of the Recording Academy; JACK SUSSMAN, Executive Vice President, Specials, Music, Live Events and Alternative Programming, CBS; and BEN WINSTON, GRAMMY Awards Executive Producer, Fulwell 73 Productions.

“After thoughtful conversations with health experts, our host, and artists scheduled to appear, we are rescheduling the 63rd Annual GRAMMY Awards® to be broadcast Sunday, March 14, 2021. The deteriorating COVID situation in Los Angeles, with hospital services being overwhelmed, ICUs having reached capacity, and new guidance from state and local governments have all led us to conclude that postponing our show was the right thing to do. Nothing is more important than the health and safety of those in our music community and the hundreds of people who work tirelessly on producing the show.

“We want to thank all of the talented artists, the staff, our vendors, and especially this year’s nominees for their understanding, patience, and willingness to work with us as we navigate these unprecedented times.”

The Recording Academy had previously announced music dignitaries who were nominated for GRAMMY Awards. Artists like Beyoncé, Megan Thee Stallion, John Legend, Chloe X Halle, Ledisi, Robert Glasper, H.E.R., Big Sean, Nipsey Hussle, DaBaby, Lil Baby, Pop Smoke, Drake, Anderson .Paak, Travis Scott, Lil Durk, Freddie Gibbs, Jay Electronica, Nas, Royce 5’9″, Rodney “Darkchild” Jerkins, Lecrae, Kirk Franklin, PJ Morton, and Kierra Sheard.
