Grammys Postpone 2021 Ceremony Over Covid-19 Concerns

0
Grammy trophies sit in the press room during the 60th Annual Grammy Awards, held in New York in Jan. 2018.

The 2021 Grammys, originally scheduled for January 31st, have been postponed due to concerns over the spread of Covid-19, multiple sources confirm to Rolling Stone. Organizers have not confirmed a new date, but sources say they are aiming to hold the event sometime in March.

The Grammys had already planned on a limited show for 2021, forgoing an audience completely and only allowing presenters and performers on-site during the show. Nominated artists wouldn’t have been allowed on-site either, likely leading to a situation similar to the 2020 Emmys where nominees appeared and accepted awards remotely.

The 2021 Grammy nominations were led by Beyoncé who picked up nine nominations, while Dua Lipa, Taylor Swift and Roddy Ricch followed behind with six nods each. It’s unclear if original host Trevor Noah is still set to host this year’s show. (Reps for Noah and the Recording Academy did not immediately reply to requests for comment.)

California as a whole has seen a surge in Covid-19 cases following Thanksgiving and the holiday season, setting a new single-day record of 74,000 new cases on January 4th, according to The Los Angeles Times. In Los Angeles County, the hospital system has been stretched so thin that Covid-19 patients are often forced to wait in ambulances for hours until hospital beds open up, while the L.A. County Emergency Medical Services Agency has directed ambulance crews to ration oxygen and not transfer patients who have virtually no chance of surviving.

The Weeknd alleges Grammys corruption after nominations snub

0

Since the nominations for the 2021 Grammy Awards were announced on Tuesday afternoon, the conversation among fans, pop critics, and industry insiders has circled around one notable absence: the Weeknd.

The Canadian pop star’s After Hours, released in March, was one of 2020’s biggest commercial success stories, with 1.8 billion streams to date, according to Alpha Data. Its second single, “Blinding Lights,” became a blockbuster with help from a popular TikTok dance trend, with 882 million streams. Despite those metrics — plus a high level of visibility on other awards shows and events including the upcoming Super Bowl, and a widespread expectation in the industry that he would be a favorite heading into next year’s awards — the Weeknd received zero nominations for the 2021 Grammys.

A source close to the situation alleges that the Weeknd’s shutout followed weeks of discussions about a possible performance at the January ceremony. “There were many conversations between the Grammys and the Weeknd team about his performance slated for the 2021 Grammys,” the source says. “There was an ultimatum given resulting in a struggle over him also playing the Super Bowl that went on for some time and was eventually agreed upon that he would perform at both events… [The Recording Academy] had all these convos with the Weeknd team in the past month, and today on November 24th, the Weeknd had not one nomination and is now completely ignored by the Grammys.”

Adds the same source: “This was the year that they were supposed to rise up. What is the process and where is the transparency?”

“We understand that the Weeknd is disappointed at not being nominated. I was surprised and can empathize with what he’s feeling. His music this year was excellent, and his contributions to the music community and broader world are worthy of everyone’s admiration,” Recording Academy Chair and Interim President/CEO Harvey Mason Jr. tells Rolling Stone in a statement.

“We would have loved to have him also perform on the Grammy stage the weekend before [the Super Bowl],” he adds. “Unfortunately, every year, there are fewer nominations than the number of deserving artists … To be clear, voting in all categories ended well before The Weeknd’s performance at the Super Bowl was announced, so in no way could it have affected the nomination process,” Mason Jr says. “All Grammy nominees are recognized by the voting body for their excellence, and we congratulate them all.”

The Recording Academy has faced persistent criticism in recent years for a lack of transparency in the awards process. After being ousted as leader in early 2020, former CEO Deborah Dugan accused the organization of corruption and a “boys’ club” mentality. (The academy repeatedly denied her allegations, but touted its efforts to grow and diversify the voting body.)

The Recording Academy’s treatment of black artists who make music outside of traditional genre categories has also been a source of tension. Earlier this year, Tyler, the Creator denounced the Best Urban Contemporary Album category — which the Weeknd has won twice in the past — as unfairly reductive, arguing that the word “urban” was “a politically correct way to say the n-word.” The Academy responded by changing the name of that category to Best Progressive R&B Album.

In an interview for the cover story of Rolling Stone‘s special Grammys preview issue in September, the Weeknd voiced a similar complaint about the way the category limits artists, regardless of its name. “It was peculiar,” the singer said. “Putting an album like Starboy and putting an album like Beauty Behind the Madness in the same category as some other artists, it’s not fair…. R&B and black music is such a wide variety. If they put us all into one category, I still think it’s not fair. We’ll see how it goes.”

Other artists were also surprised and displeased by the Weeknd’s snubbing. “Abel was robbed man this shits weak,” tweeted Kid Cudi. Elton John — who is listed as a cowriter on After Hours, since the Weeknd interpolates his 1970 classic “Your Song” on one of its tracks — weighed in on Instagram to say that he felt “Blinding Lights” deserved Record of the Year and Song of the Year consideration. Tinashe responded to a tweet about the Weeknd’s lack of nominations with a series of trash-can emojis.

Post Malone was the big winner at the 2020 Billboard Music Awards, which were presented Wednesday (Oct. 14). He won nine awards, including artist of the year.

Khalid was the year’s second-biggest winner, with five awards, followed by Lil Nas X and Billy Ray Cyrus, who won four awards each on the strength of their record-setting collab “Old Town Road (Remix).”

This year’s show was originally scheduled for April 29 but was delayed because of the COVID-19 pandemic. Kelly Clarkson hosted the show for the third year in a row.

Billie Eilish: The teen phenom’s When We All Fall Asleep, Where Do We Go?  won top Billboard 200 album, nearly nine months after it won the Grammy for album of the year. It’s the fourth album in the past 10 years to receive both of these awards, following Adele’s 21 and 25 and Taylor Swift’s 1989. Eilish also won top female artist, beating last year’s winner, Ariana Grande, and three-time category champ Swift. Eilish also took top new artist. She’s the first female artist to win in this category since Lorde in 2014.

Lady Gaga Reveals Her VMA Prep Techniques in Hilarious Posts

Lady Gaga's Incoming Single Seemingly Samples Nelly Furtado's ...

At the beginning of March, Lady Gaga announced the initial dates of her “Chromatica Ball” tour promoting her new album, which would have seen her playing a half dozen dates in Europe and the U.S., concluding at MetLife Stadium on August 19. Well, we all know what happened next, and while a canceled tour is hardly the end of the world, as a preview of her appearance on the VMAs this Sunday, Gaga vented a little bit in a pair of recent social media posts.

In the first clip, posted Thursday and captioned “When you want to be on stage performing for your fans but there’s a super-virus #VMAs,” we get a couple of glimpses of her vividly decorated home before the camera cuts to Gaga laying face-down in bed, wearing a yellow “Chromatica” t-shirt, underwear that says “Tokyo” and an odd, lobster-ish headdress. The words “Dreaming of reality” pass across the screen before she screams into her pillow, and then there’s a test-pattern sound followed by the words “Stay tuned.” We then see Gaga floating in a pool on a big unicorn-shaped raft, holding a parasol.

In a separate photo posted on Instagram late Tuesday, we see more of her warrior-performer stance as the VMAs draw near: She sits in an ice bath, doing devil horns with both hands: “#vmas,” the caption reads, with a pair of emojis.

Lady Gaga will be performing with Ariana Grande at the VMAs on Sunday night, which is fitting since they both are the show’s top nominees, with nine each — many of them for “Rain on Me,” their duet from “Chromatica.”

Freak Out: Lady Gaga Set Has Been Added as a VMAs Performer

Gaga is coming back to the VMAs on a career high.

Lady Gaga has been added to the lineup of performers for the VMAs on Aug. 30. The superstar announced the news on social media Thursday (Aug. 13).

MTV didn’t reveal what song(s) Gaga will perform, other than to say that she “will bring her chart-topping album, Chromatica, to life” and that it will be “the world premiere televised performance of her latest release.”

It will be Gaga’s fourth VMAs performance; her first since she opened the 2013 telecast with “Applause.» Gaga also performed on the VMAs in 2011 (teaming with Brian May for «Yoü and I») and 2009 (performing “Poker Face” and “Paparazzi”).

Previously-announced performers are BTS, Doja Cat, J Balvin, The Weeknd, Roddy Ricch, Maluma and CNCO. Keke Palmer is set to host the show.

Gaga is tied with Ariana Grande for the most nominations this year — nine each.

Gaga has won 13 VMAs — a total topped by just two artists in VMAs history: Beyoncé with 24 and Madonna with 20. Gaga’s video for “Bad Romance” won seven awards at the 2010 show, including video of the year. Only one other video has won seven or more awards. Peter Gabriel’s “Sledgehammer” won nine awards at the 1987 show.

Gaga is coming back to the VMAs on a career high. She won an Oscar for best original song for “Shallow” from A Star Is Born in early 2019. She was also nominated for best actress. Her current album, Chromatica, entered the Billboard 200 at No. 1, her sixth album to top that chart. “Rain on Me,” her collab with Grande, entered the Hot 100 at No. 1, allowing Gaga to set a new record for the longest span of No. 1-debuting singles. It was nine years, three months and one week since she opened in the top spot with “Born This Way.”

Seven of Gaga’s VMA nods this year are for “Rain on Me.” She is also nominated for artist of the year and in the new best quarantine performance category for her cover of the pop standard “Smile” from One World: Together at Home, which aired in syndication on April 18.

Gaga’s VMAs performance could boost Chromatica’s chances of landing a Grammy nomination for album of the year. Gaga was nominated for the top Grammy for The Fame (2009), The Fame Monster (2010) and Born This Way (2011).

Fans can vote for their favorites across 15 gender-neutral categories, including video of the year and artist of the year through Aug. 23 at vma.mtv.com. Voting for PUSH best new artist presented by Chime Banking will remain open until the show is on the air.
