There’s a new date and a new home for the 2022 Grammy Awards.

The Recording Academy announced Tuesday that the 64th annual awards show, originally scheduled for Jan. 31 in Los Angeles, will now be held on April 3 in Las Vegas.

Sin City’s MGM Grand Garden Arena is the new venue for music’s biggest night, which will be broadcast live April 3 on CBS.

Previously announced host Trevor Noah is still set as master of ceremonies.

Amid growing concerns surrounding the highly contagious omicron variant, the ceremony was postponed from its original date of Jan. 31 at Arena (formerly the Staples Center) in Los Angeles.It will be the first time the Grammy will be held in Vegas, Recording Academy CEO Harvey Mason Jr. said in Tuesday’s announcement.

“From the moment we announced the postponement of the original show date, we have been inundated with heartfelt messages of support and solidarity from the artist community,” he said.

Since the Grammy Awards shifted airdates, the CMT Music Awards will move from its originally scheduled date of April 3 to later in the month. Information about the date and location of the fan-voted country music awards show will be announced in the coming weeks.

“We appreciate the leadership CBS has shown during these challenging weeks and the flexibility of the CMTs and others who worked toward this solution,” Mason added.
