 The Recording Academy, the organizers of the prestigious Grammy Awards has announced that it has postponed the 2021 Grammy Awards to March this year.

This year’s Grammys was originally slated for January 31st but in a statement released Tuesday evening, organizers, citing “thoughtful conversations with health experts, our host and artists scheduled to appear,” confirmed that they’ll stage the award show on Sunday, March 14th.

Prior to the postponement, there were plans to have a limited show as only presenters and performers would be allowed on-site during the show while the audience will watch virtually.

Nominated artists wouldn’t have been allowed on-site either, likely leading to a situation similar to the 2020 Emmys where nominees appeared and accepted awards remotely.

Multiple award-winning songstress Beyonce leads the Grammy nominations this year with nine nods while Taylor Swift, Dua Lipa and Roddy Rich snagged six nominations each.
