Emerging News, 2022 Grammy Awards Postponed Due to COVID-19
If you were thinking of plopping yourself down on your couch and cracking open a beer or twelve to watch music's biggest night come late January, you're going to have to make other plans. Each year, I head out to the liquor store and stock up on libations, make my way back home on the snow-covered roads, and get ready to yell at my TV and anger tweet that the idiots in the Acadamy don't know what they are doing. It's very Western New York of me...
For the second year in a row, the COVID-19 Pandemic, and the concerns surrounding it have caused The Recording Academy and CBS to postpone the 64th annual Grammy Awards show.
A joint statement from CBS and The Recording Acadamy said:
After careful consideration and analysis with city and state officials, health and safety experts, the artist community and our many partners, the Recording Academy® and CBS have postponed the 64th Annual GRAMMY Awards® Show. The health and safety of those in our music community, the live audience, and the hundreds of people who work tirelessly to produce our show remains our top priority. Given the uncertainty surrounding the Omicron variant, holding the show on January 31 simply contains too many risks.
The Recording Academy has not announced a new date for its 64th annual show, originally scheduled for Jan. 31 in Los Angeles.
WBUF Favorites AC/DC, and the Foo Fighters both have several nominations this year. Other rockers getting the nod include; Chris Cornell for his cover of "Nothing Compares 2 U" for Best Rock Performance, Weezer's "All My Favorite Songs" for Best Rock Song, AC/DC's "Power Up" and the Foo Fighter's "Medicine at Midnight" for Best Rock Album.
