After a two-month delay due to coronavirus precautions, the 2021 Grammy Awards finally air this weekend, with what promises to be an unpredictable, Covid-conscious production airing live from Los Angeles.
Beyoncé leads the pack with nine nominations, with Dua Lipa, Taylor Swift, and Roddy Ricch following close behind with six nods each. Other nominees include Megan Thee Stallion, Post Malone, Phoebe Bridgers, Brittany Howard and country star Ingrid Andress.
When Are the Grammy Awards? Date, Time, Location
The 63rd Annual Grammy Awards air live from Los Angeles tonight, Sunday, March 14th at 8pm EST / 5pm PST with host Trevor Noah. Unlike the recent Prince Harry and Meghan Markle interview, which aired at 8pm on both coasts, Sunday’s Grammy Awards will be simulcast live on both the East Coast and West Coast.
While the Grammy Awards have typically been held at the Staples Center in downtown LA, organizers tell Rolling Stone that this year’s event will be held at an undisclosed building in LA that has been cleaned and vetted to be as Covid-safe as possible.
