The Grammys are headed to Las Vegas.
Initially slated for Jan 31 at the Crypto.com Arena in Los Angeles, the iconic award show will now be hosted on the Strip. Organizers made the switch because of COVID-19 concerns.
"We are thrilled to become part of the Grammy Awards legacy and have the opportunity to host this year's prestigious event at the iconic MGM Grand Garden Arena," MGM Resorts International Vice President of Entertainment Chris Baldizan said in a statement. "We are ready to celebrate the biggest night in music in the Entertainment Capital of the World, and can't wait to show artists, and music fans everywhere why Las Vegas throws the best party."
Unfortunately, this looks like it will be a one-off event. L.A. has hosted the show almost every year for the past two decades, and there's no reason to think that trend won't continue.
Let's enjoy it while it's here.
The 64th annual Grammy Awards will be at the MGM Grand Garden Arena on April 3.
