For the second consecutive year, a surge in Covid-19 cases has forced CBS and the Recording Academy to postpone the Grammy Awards ceremony.

The 64th Annual Grammy Awards, which had been set to air Jan. 31 on CBS and Paramount+, have been delayed. The ceremony, hosted by The Daily Show’s Trevor Noah, had been set to take place Jan. 31 in Los Angeles’ newly-renamed Arena.

“After careful consideration and analysis with city and state officials, health and safety experts, the artist community and our many partners, the Recording Academy and CBS have postponed the 64th Annual Grammy Awards show,” the Recording Academy and CBS said in a joint statement.
