64th Grammy Awards descending into chaos as Las Vegas proves to be BAD CHOICE of venue
The action-packed Grammy weekend is descending into chaos because 'no one wants to go to that gross a** town,' said one publicity agent
The relocation of the Grammy Awards to Las Vegas is causing concern. Several music industry insiders are saying that preparations for the event in Sin City are so chaotic that many would like nothing more than leave Las Vegas. Without the resources that LA provides, the Grammy weekend is shaping up to be a complete disaster.
“People are stressed and frazzled running up and down the strip. There are multiple conferences going on, a big poker event, and getting luxury cars for artists has been a disaster,” one source told Page Six. The 64th Annual Grammy Awards were intended to be telecast live from the Crypto.com Arena in Los Angeles on January 31. Due to the coronavirus, the Recording Academy was compelled to delay the event and transfer it to MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas, which had greater outdoor space.
The move has caused the action-packed weekend to descend into chaos because “no one wants to go to that gross a** town,” according to one publicity agent, who is not attending. “Stylists are having meltdowns because there are no expert tailors like LA, and they have to lug couture gowns and tuxedos through smoky casinos that smell bad,” another source informed Page Six.
Amid music industry troubles, musicians are being forced to reduce the size of their entourages owing to limited credentials this year, and there will be a severe lack of major music company events. Clive Davis even postponed his usual star-studded pre-Grammy gala earlier this year because of the logistical hurdles posed by the ongoing epidemic and “the unavailability of an adequate location."
Where to watch Grammy Awards?
The Grammy Awards will be held in the MGM Garden Arena in Las Vegas and will be televised live on CBS at 5 pm Pacific. The ceremony will also be shown live and on demand on Paramount+.
The event was originally set for January 31 in Los Angeles, but it was postponed and then relocated to Las Vegas due to worries about the Omicron form of COVID-19. This is also why it is being held after the Oscars this year.
Who is hosting?
On Sunday, April 3, Trevor Noah will host the show, which will be attended by Billie Eilish, BTS, Lil Nas X, Leon Bridges, and Lady Gaga. Meanwhile, Steven Tyler will host a Grammy watch party in Los Angeles' Hollywood Palladium, where Miley Cyrus will perform.
