Los Angeles: The 64th edition of the Grammy Awards will be broadcast live from Las Vegas on April 3, the Recording Academy has announced. Harvey Mason Jr, the CEO of the Recording Academy, shared the update in a statement on Grammy’s official website.
The event, earlier scheduled to take place in Los Angeles on January 31, now will be held from the MGM Grand Garden Arena on April 3. It will be aired on the CBS Television Network and will also be available to stream live and on-demand on Paramount Plus.
Trevor Noah, the Emmy Award-winning host of “The Daily Show,” will return as master of ceremonies. In early January, the Recording Academy postponed the ceremony due to the Omicron variant leading to a surge in Covid-19 cases.
Las Vegas will be hosting the Grammys for the very first time, while the Latin Grammy Awards have been held in Sin City six times since 2014. Mason Jr. said the team is excited to put on a world-class show in Las Vegas.
“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 artistic 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 and our production partners at Fulwell 73 have shown during these challenging weeks and the flexibility of everyone who worked toward this solution,” Mason Jr. said in the statement.
