Are you nervous or excited about the upcoming big event-GRAMMYs 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,” the Recording Academy and CBS, the network broadcasting the show, said in a statement. “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. We want to thank all of the talented artists, the staff, our vendors and especially this year’s nominees for their understanding, patience and willingness to work with us as we navigate these unprecedented times.”
Eventually this year, the #Grammy_award show is held on 15 March, 5:30am in India Standard Time. The full performer lineup has been announced. They include Taylor Swift, BTS, Dua Lipa, Billie Eilish, Megan Thee Stallion, Harry Styles and more are confirmed.
#The_Grammy_award is an award presented by the Recording Academy to recognise achievements in the music industry. The trophy depicts a gilded gramophone. This was first awarded on May 4, 1959. The annual presentation ceremony features performances by prominent artists, and the presentation of those awards that have a more popular interest.
The hosting company, the Recording Academy decides the #Grammys with each entry voted on by Academy members. These voting members include professional artists, producers, engineers and songwriters who have credits on a number of commercial tracks. But don’t get upset that it isn’t voted on by the public! Fans can still support their favourite artists by posting about them on social media to put them on the Recording Academy’s radar.
The recording academy has clarified that in the time of a pandemic, since this ceremony can’t be held in the usual way, the show will be held on Sunday in and around the Los Angeles Convention Centre without the usual audience. They said that there will be four stages surrounded by a small gathering of fellow performers, nominees and their guests, with a few segments taking place outdoors.
Hope this year’s Grammy awards will be alright and everybody is safe till the end.
