The 64th annual Grammy Awards ceremony honoring top performances in music has a new date — and a new location.
The ceremony has been rescheduled and will now broadcast live from the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas on Sunday, April 3, from 8-11:30 p.m. on CBS. The event also will be available to stream live and on demand on Paramount+.
This will be the first time that the awards show to be hosted in Las Vegas as well as to be aired on CBS.
The ceremony was postponed earlier this month amid an omicron surge from its original date of Jan. 31.
Last year’s event also were postponed due to the coronavirus outbreak. The ceremony was staged in March instead of January and included a mix of pre-recorded and live segments in front of a small, socially distanced crowd.
South African award winning comedian Trevor Noah is still set to return as host.
Nominations for the 2022 Grammys were announced in November 2021. Jon Batiste leads the nominees with 11 noms. He earned nods in the top categories of record of the year and album of the year.
The Recording Academy expanded this year those two categories and the other two general field categories — song of the year and best new artist — to feature 10 nominees, up from eight.
The new Grammys date forced CMT Music Awards for country music, which had been scheduled for April 3, to take place later in April.
