The poor government handling of the Covid-19 Pandemic has forced the Recording Academy to make all of their Grammy related events 100% virtual this year. They should have just relocated the awards to Florida, like CPAC did – or simply called it a peaceful protest.
The Recording Academy has announced its GRAMMY Week events lineup ahead of the 63rd Annual GRAMMY Awards broadcasting Sunday, March 14, 2021 on the CBS Television Network at 8 p.m. ET / 5 p.m. PT. All events will be virtual this year to ensure the safety of our staff and guests and to make the events as accessible as possible to attendees. Please find a list of events and additional details below:
