64th Grammy Awards Moved To Vegas April 3rd
On Tuesday, The Recording Academy announced to members that the 64th Grammy Awards will take place April 3 at the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas. This is the first time the star studded event will be held there and it is still set to be live on CBS. Leading with the most nominations is John Batiste with 11 and hosting is Trevor Noah. John was excited to hear the news of his amount of nominations and quickly tweeted that he born on 11/11. This is the second year in a row that COVID-19 has forced Music’s biggest night to be postponed. The date changed also pushes back the CMT Music Awards that was set to originally take place on April 3rd.
