The 2022 Grammys were originally scheduled for January 31, 2022, at the Staples Centre in Los Angeles. However, on January 5, CBS and the Recording Academy released a statement saying the ceremony has been postponed indefinitely due to the rise in Omicron cases.

The companies said in a statement, via Deadline, that:

“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.”

It was later confirmed that the 2022 Grammys would be held on April 4, 2022, at 10:00 am AEST.

The Grammy Awards night, which is lauded as one of the biggest events in the music industry, is centred on recognising the work of music artists.

Awards nominations are submitted and voted on by members of the Recording Academy. There’s a whole process that goes into selecting nominees and naming award recipients that you can read about here.

Updates to the voting process have been announced in 2021 following criticism from previous years. Most recently, and publicly, by The Weeknd.

Recording Academy CEO Harvey Mason jr. is quoted in a statement from April 2021 saying:

“It’s been a year of unprecedented, transformational change for the Recording Academy, and I’m immensely proud to be able to continue our journey of growth with these latest updates to our Awards process.

“This is a new Academy, one that is driven to action and that has doubled down on the commitment to meeting the needs of the music community. While change and progress are key drivers of our actions, one thing will always remain — the GRAMMY Award is the only peer-driven and peer-voted recognition in music. We are honored (sic) to work alongside the music community year-round to further refine and protect the integrity of the Awards process.”

Who is hosting this year?

It has been confirmed that Trevor Noah is once again hosting the Grammys awards night. The comedian and TV host shared the news on Instagram a few months back now.

Which artists performed?

Taking to the stage during the 64th Grammy Awards in 2022 will be Brothers Osborne, BTS, Brandi Carlile, Billie Eilish, Lil Nas X with Jack Harlow and Olivia Rodrigo, among others.

If you weren’t able to catch all the performances live this year, the Grammys has a few clips available to watch back here.

Additionally, you’ll be able to watch the performances back with encore screenings of the awards night. May we suggest you keep a keen eye for the performances by Jon Batiste, H.E.R along with Lenny Kravitz and Travis Barker, Brandi Carlilie and Billie Eilish.

The in memoriam tribute for artists we lost in 2022, including Taylor Hawkins, was a particularly moving performance given by Leslie Odom Jr, Rachel Zegler, Cynthia Erivo and Ben Platt – it will give you full-body chills.
