A new date has been confirmed for the 2022 GRAMMY Awards after it was postponed due to concerns surrounding COVID-19.

The Recording Academy confirmed on Tuesday (Jan 18) that the event is now planned for April 3 – and it's even moved location too!

The GRAMMYs were originally due to take place in January in California, but the music event has now found a new home in Las Vegas.

The now-Spring event will be held at the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Sin City – a 17,000 seat venue located on the Las Vegas strip.

The relocation marks the first time the prestigious event has taken place outside of Los Angeles or New York since the early-1970s.

Historically, the GRAMMY's occur early on in the new year, with an April date for one of the biggest nights in music being relatively late into 2022.

The date change came after growing anxieties concerning the rapidly-spreading omicron variant, pushing The Recording Academy's night back by two months.

April can't come soon enough!
