SANTA MONICA, Calif. (NEXSTAR) – After the postponement of the 64th Annual Grammy Awards due to concerns about the omicron variant, the organizers have announced a new date for the award ceremony. The new day, however, will delay a different award show.

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

Due to the rescheduled Grammys, the CMT Awards – originally scheduled for April 3 – will be moved to a later date this month, CBS announced. The network will air both award shows.

Multi-talented Jon Batiste is the main nominee for this year’s Grammy’s, racking up 11 nods in a variety of genres, including R&B, jazz, American roots music, classical and music video.

Justin Bieber, Doja Cat and HER tied for the second most nominations with eight each.

Another awards show, the Golden Globes, went ahead this year without hosts, presenters, a red carpet event or an audience. The ceremony was also available to stream or watch on TV after a 2021 report that highlighted a lack of diversity among Hollywood Foreign Press Association voters.
