According to Ben Winston, they are hoping to go forward with the show on the new date, March 14th.
The show was already expected to be much smaller than previous years with only people deemed absolutely necessary in attendance. Presenters, performers, and the crew were the only ones who would be allowed on-site, while winners would be accepting their awards virtually. This is similar to how other award shows have been run over the past year, including the CMA Awards and the American Music Awards. But with the staggering number of COVID cases continuing to pop-up in Los Angeles, organizers felt the safest course of action was to wait for the spread to slow down before proceeding with the show.
Performers and presenters had not been announced yet, but Trevor Noah was set to host. There is no word if he will still be hosting for the rescheduled date. Leading the pack of nominees is Taylor Swift, Beyonce, Roddy Ricch, and Dua Lipa.
Fans of nominated artists are quite disappointed, but they seem to understand the safety concerns and the academys reason for putting the show on hold. Harry Styles fans are a bit upset he doesn’t have the chance to receive an award for his birthday, but BTS fans are excited that Yoongi might get one just a few days after his!
