CBS and the Recording Academy announced Tuesday that the Grammy Awards has been relocated to Las Vegas on Sunday, April 3rd. The ceremony was originally going to occur later this month in Los Angeles, but it was postponed due to the pandemic.
“We are excited to take the Grammys to Las Vegas for the very first time, and to put on a world-class show,” Harvey Mason Jr., CEO of the Recording Academy, said in a statement. “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.”
The CMT Music Awards, a show in which fans vote for their favorite country music artists, was supposed to take place on April 3. That event will move to later date and air on CBS, according to the network. The Grammy Awards will take place at the MGM Grand Garden Arena with “The Daily Show” host Trevor Noah as the night’s master of ceremonies.
