Next year's Grammys could possibly be delayed

With Omicron rampant and new COVID cases surging, discussion is said to be ongoing at the Recording Academy about the possibility of postponing the Grammys once again—as well as the option to move to an outdoor venue such as the Hollywood Bowl.

Word has it that co-executive producer Raj Kapoor is running point on this issue from a production standpoint, along with CBS exec Jack Sussman and Academy chief Harvey Mason Jr. There are multiple complex issues to navigate here, but we understand that artists have begun to push back against the idea of doing the show as previously scheduled.

Given the size of the Grammy production—performers, presenters, stage and TV crews, security, food and beverage service and so on—the logistical considerations are, to say the least, daunting. “With this large a crew,” an Academy insider muses, “I’m not sure outdoors would be that much safer.”

Should the Academy decide once again to do the telecast without an audience, of course, the options will vary. “It’s all under discussion,” confirms a highly placed source close to the show.

An Academy spokesperson declined to comment on the matter.

You guys have a point. Let's see what happens when it gets delayed and then cancelled for the foreseeable future
