After a postponement due to the emergence of the omicron COVID-19 variant, the 2022 Grammy Awards have officially been rescheduled and are set to take place on April 3 at the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas. The awards show will air at 8 p.m. ET and be produced by Fulwell 73 Productions for the Recording Academy. A Grammy winner himself, Trevor Noah, who took home the award for Best Comedy Album in 2020, will host the awards for the second consecutive year after assuming the duties at the 63rd annual ceremony last year.
Originally set to take place in Los Angeles and air on Monday, Jan. 31, this year’s Grammy postponement also marks the second year in a row that the awards show has been pushed back as last year’s ceremony took place on March 14 instead of Jan. 31, as initially announced.
