Corona postponement for the Grammy gala: The awarding of the music prizes, which is planned for the end of January, should not take place until mid-March. The Recording Academy announced this on Tuesday (local time) in Los Angeles. After consultations with health experts about the acute corona situation in Los Angeles and discussions with the invited artists, the association made this decision, the statement said.
The Grammys are among the most coveted music awards in the world. The nominations were announced in November. The 63rd award ceremony is now scheduled for March 14th.
The US singer Beyoncé is the favorite in the upcoming Grammy Awards with nine prize chances. Taylor Swift, Dua Lipa, Roddy Ricch, Billie Eilish, Megan Thee Stallion and DaBaby also received several nominations. Around 13,000 members of the Recording Academy decide on the winners. The gala is to be moderated by comedian Trevor Noah.
Hollywood’s film awards are also affected by the corona pandemic. The Oscar ceremony is not due to take place until the end of April, eight weeks later than initially planned. (apa / dpa)
