However, the coronavirus pandemic has made for a sudden change of plans in this year's upcoming ceremony which was set to be held in late January. With the new Omicron variant of the disease sweeping the United States, the ceremony's organizers have decided to postpone this year's awards to a later date.

"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," reads an official statement from the Grammy's website.

"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." And with that, the Grammys suffers their latest blowback, following a year of criticism from artists like Drake who has withdrawn his personal nominations, claiming that the ceremony is outdated and unfair.

And many fans agree with him after artists like The Weeknd have been famously overlooked for the award in previous years.

For many in the entertainment industry, it's time for televised award ceremonies to end, and this latest postponement to the Grammys certainly doesn't help that narrative. Ratings for the Grammys, Oscars, Golden Globes and Emmys have been in free fall for years, a trend that has accelerated during the pandemic. Perhaps this 2022 is the beginning of the end for the Grammy Awards. Only time will tell, but things don't look good so far.

Although this is Hollywood, and audiences love a comeback, so you never really know...
