About the 2021 Grammy Awards Broadcast

63rd annual grammy awards

The 63rd Annual Grammy Awards were scheduled to take place on January 31 from the Staples Center in Los Angeles. Due to the pandemic, they were rescheduled to March 14. The eligibility window for the 2021 Grammy Awards was September 1, 2019 to August 31, 2020.

Given the ongoing health crisis and uncertainty regarding how many people will be allowed inside the venue, it still hasn’t been determined what the show will look like. But it does appear the Grammys are doing an in-person broadcast, as opposed to the Emmys and Golden Globes, which were totally virtual.

Recording Academy Interim President/CEO Harvey Mason Jr. told Variety, “We’re looking at Staples [Center] with a limited audience, although that seems increasingly unlikely; Staples with live performances and no audience; or something a little more virtual, with some elements from different locations. We’re still waiting to hear back from our partners at the network and the venue and our medical experts, because obviously we want this to be safe for everyone. But the date is definitely Jan. 31, and it’s going to be a spectacular show.”

Comedian Trevor Noah of The Daily Show will serve as host. Last year, Noah was nominated for Best Comedy Album for the first time. He said in a statement, “I think as a one-time Grammy nominee, I am the best person to provide a shoulder to all the amazing artists who do not win on the night because I too know the pain of not winning the award! (This is a metaphorical shoulder, I’m not trying to catch Corona). See you at the 63rd Grammys!”

The Recording Academy waited until one week before the broadcast to announce its full performance lineup. Performers include Taylor Swift, Harry Styles, Billie Eilish, Dua Lipa, Megan Thee Stallion, Mickey Guyton, and more. See the full list.
