The Recording Academy and CBS announced today the dates for the GRAMMY Awards in 2020 and 2021. The 62nd Annual GRAMMY Awards will air on Sunday, Jan. 26, 2020, and the 63rd Annual GRAMMY Awards will air on Sunday, Jan. 31, 2021. As the only peer-selected music award, the GRAMMY is voted on by the Recording Academy’s membership body of music makers who represent all genres and creative disciplines, including recording artists, songwriters, producers, mixers, and engineers, and will honor recordings released within the eligibility year.
“Our return to Los Angeles and the debut of the GRAMMY Awards in January for 2020 and 2021 should prove to be exciting for our industry and the music creators we honor,” said Neil Portnow, President/CEO of the Recording Academy. “The Recording Academy is pleased to call Los Angeles, STAPLES Center, and CBS our partners in celebrating musical excellence, and we look forward to furthering the synergistic and successful relationship we’ve cultivated over the years.”
“Los Angeles loves the GRAMMYs — a celebration of the artists who transform how we think about music, and the behind-the-boards talent that makes their excellence possible. The music industry is integral to L.A.’s economy, and reflects the spirit of the city itself: diverse, imaginative, and always ready to break new ground. We are thrilled to welcome the GRAMMYs back to the creative capital of the world, and look forward to hosting the awards for years to come,” added Mayor Eric Garcetti
