Organisers, however, announced on Tuesday, January 5 that it has been postponed due to coronavirus concerns.

After thoughtful conversations with health experts, our host and artists scheduled to appear, we are rescheduling the 63rd Annual GRAMMY Awards to be broadcast Sunday, March 14, 2021.

“The deteriorating COVID situation in Los Angeles, with hospital services being overwhelmed, ICUs having reached capacity, and new guidance from state and local governments have all led us to conclude that postponing our show was the right thing to do.

“Nothing is more important than the health and safety of those in our music community and the hundreds of people who work tirelessly on producing the show,” the organisers said in a statement.

The Recording Academy had earlier planned to hold the Grammys, without an audience or nominated artists, with only presenters and performing artists on-site during the show, before it was postponed.

The category was renamed Best Global Music Album in October.
