2022 Grammy Awards spokesperson denies event cancellation

Since last Monday, January 3, various media specialized in entertainment have announced the news that the next edition of the Grammy awards could cancel your face-to-face event due to the increase in infections due to omicron variant. Nevertheless, the spokesperson for the gala has publicly stated that this would be nothing more than speculation.

The Billboard platform was one of the first to talk about the subject. This same medium pointed out that different sources have affirmed that this year’s awards will be postponed to a later date. In addition, he stressed that a source with “direct knowledge” told the outlet that the delay was likely.

Hours later, the representative of the event came out to testify and affirmed that this would not be true. He also invited the media not to make “speculation caused by an unidentified source.”

This would not be the first time that there had been a change of dates for the gala. The 2021 Grammys were moved from January 31 to March 14 as a result of restrictions imposed by the coronavirus, resulting in a shortened version of the annual event.

Previously, it had been confirmed who would be the presenter of the next edition. For the second time in a row, comedian Trevor Noah will host the event.

“We are very excited to welcome Trevor to the GRAMMY stage and we feel fortunate to have him again host what we believe will be an unforgettable evening,” said Grammy CEO Harvey Mason Jr.

One of the nominations that causes the most expectation is that of Jay-Z. The rapper competes in three categories for the 2022 ceremony and sets a record by beating musician Quincy Jones for the most nominations in awards history with a total of 83 to date.
