(CNN) — Organizers of the Grammy Awards, scheduled for later this month, have postponed the event for the second year in a row, citing the current Covid-19 surge.
The show was scheduled to take place at the Crypto.com Arena in Los Angeles with “The Daily Show’s” Trevor Noah as host once again.
Given the uncertainty surrounding the Omicron variant, holding the show on January 31 simply contains too many risks. We look forward to celebrating Music’s Biggest Night® on a future date, which will be announced soon,” the companies added.
Last year’s Grammy Awards were postponed from January to March, also due to the pandemic and a surge in Covid-19 cases. The show ultimately took place, largely outside, at the Los Angeles Convention Center with a smaller in-person audience.
