SANTA MONICA, Calif. (NEXSTAR) – After postponing the 64th Annual Grammy Awards due to concerns about the Omicron variant, organizers have announced a new date for the awards show. However, the new day delayed another award ceremony.

The Grammy Awards, originally scheduled for January 31st, will now take place on April 3rd. The ceremony will be broadcast live from the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas.

Due to the postponed Grammys, the CMT Awards – originally scheduled for April 3 – will be rescheduled to later this month, CBS announced. The network will broadcast both awards shows.

Multi-talented Jon Batiste is the leading nominee for this year’s Grammys, earning 11 nominations across a variety of genres including R&B, jazz, American roots music, classical and music video.

Justin Bieber, Doja Cat and HER occupy the second highest nominations with eight nominations each.

Another awards show, the Golden Globes, took place this year without a host, presenter, red carpet, or audience. The ceremony could also be streamed or watched on TV after a 2021 report that highlighted the lack of diversity on the Hollywood Foreign Press Association’s electoral board.
