The 2020 and 2021 Grammys will take place at their usual location of the Staples Centre in Los Angeles. The 62nd annual Grammy Awards ceremony will air on Sunday, Jan. 26th, 2020and the 63rd edition of the ceremony will occur on January 31st, 2021. This year was the first time the award ceremony took place in New York City since 2003. L.A. Mayor Eric Garcetti explained that the City of Angels is a perfect place for the Grammys to hold their annual ceremony due to the fact that it’s a hub for musical forces.
“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,” he said.
