The Grammy’s is one of the most anticipated music events of the year. Covid has changed how we do entertainment in general. Originally the Grammys were going to have a very limited show where there would be no audience and only allowing performers and presenters on site.

The 2021 Grammy nominations were led by Beyoncé who picked up nine nominations, while Dua Lipa, Taylor Swift, and Roddy Ricch followed behind with six nods each. It’s unclear if original host Trevor Noah is still set to host this year’s show.

The Grammys have postponed the show due to Covid-19 concerns. Recently California as a whole has had an increase in COVID cases since the Thanksgiving holiday. The state set a new record of 74,000 new cases on January 4th according to The Los Angeles Times.

The show which was set to premiere on Jan. 31, has now been rescheduled for some time in March.
