Grammy Awards 2021: Everything you need to know ahead of music’s biggest night

The 63rd Grammy Awards are expected to be as surprising and headline-grabbing as usual, despite taking place in a virtual format for the first time due to COVID-19 restrictions.

Last year’s event, which saw the music world mourn the shock loss of basketball great Kobe Bryant, took place in January 2020 and so preceded the spread of coronavirus in the US and around the world.

Here is everything you need to know about 2021’s ‘virtual Grammys’.

When and where is it taking place?

The Grammys will take place on the night of Sunday March 14 local time at an undisclosed location in Los Angeles instead of its usual venue, the Staples Center.

Originally scheduled for January 31, the date was pushed back due to the coronavirus pandemic.

Proceedings will begin at 5pm Pacific time, which is 12pm on Monday AEDT.
