I think this is really embarrassing and silly on their part. They knew what January would look like and still didn’t plan a virtual show.
I mean the winners won’t be affected but smh, they’ve made mistake after mistake this year.January 5, 2021 at 12:07 pm #1203964283
Just the 63rd Grammys being the 63rd GrammysJanuary 5, 2021 at 12:07 pm #1203964289
This is incredibly sloppy. It would have made more sense to plan a virtual-only ceremony before the nominations were even announced. That way, the show would go on as planned on 1/31. The pandemic won’t end in March, so it’s dumb to move it without some major changes to the standard format. The fact that other music award shows were able to put together a show without any push backs, but the Grammys (“the pinnacle of music,” as some people would like to put it) can’t adapt is really dumbfounding to me.January 5, 2021 at 12:12 pm #1203964320
It’s extremely vain to me. Red carpets and glitz with glamour is needed that fuckin’ bad? Get with everyone else and just do the shit virtually like the Emmys did. They had MONTHS to prepare and the virus isn’t gonna go away in 8 weeks. If they do this, they might as well extend the voting period cause there is NO POINT TO THIS.January 5, 2021 at 12:15 pm #1203964331
They closed the voting and said thank you for your votes. They couldn’t extend the voting period because labels spent money on final round promo and they would be annoyed I think.January 5, 2021 at 12:15 pm #1203964333
The arrogance in not planning a virtual-only show and advertising a business-as-usual “live on the Grammy stage!” roster of performances SMDH. Hire a competent and permanent CEO for starters, and then get to planning for the virtual show stat. Nothing’s going to be better with a global pandemic in March.January 5, 2021 at 12:17 pm #1203964338
I hope the winners leak at this point. It feels so pretentious and self-centered that they just can’t bring themselves to have some less grand virtual show like literally everyone else.

I feel bad for the artists that were planning on using it as part of a promotional campaign. This probably totally changes Adele’s entire album rollout, whatever Beyoncé had planned, I’m sure Dua and Taylor had big plans too.January 5, 2021 at 12:18 pm #1203964343
the Grammys twitter account literally tweeted this yesterday, it must have been a recent decision to postpone it.

Worse Grammy season in history. I can’t even blame COVID. This is all the producers and the Academy’s fault.

Just another reason why the Grammys are such a mess. Do they think it will be better in March?January 5, 2021 at 12:24 pm #1203964360
Surely this was pushed by the filming shutdown in LA. And probably the big ones at the academy decided some time ago but didnt tell the publicity guys not to interfere in voting. So announcing the day is over makes sense.January 5, 2021 at 12:27 pm #1203964374
I knew this was going to happen. Our Covid #s here in LA meant it made no sense for the show to be able to go on this January… even if producers wanted it to, the artists would back out.
Postponing seems dumb at this point. Just announce the winners at the end of the month and plan for an extravagant telecast next year.
