The 2022 GRAMMY Awards is coming to the Entertainment Capital of the World for the first time ever.

After announcing earlier this month that this year’s GRAMMY Awards would be postponed due to the recent surge of the Omicron COVID-19 variant, officials announced Tuesday that the show will be moved to Las Vegas.

The 64th GRAMMY Awards will broadcast live from the MGM Grand Garden Arena on Sunday, April 13, according to The Recording Academy.

“We are excited to take the GRAMMYs to Las Vegas for the very first time and to put on a world-class show. From the moment we announced the postponement of the original show date, we have been inundated with heartfelt messages of support and solidarity from the artist community,” Recording Academy CEO Harvey Mason Jr. said in a statement.

Trevor Noah, the Emmy Award-winning host of “The Daily Show,” is hosting this year’s award show.

Additional details about the dates and locations of other official events, including the GRAMMY Awards Premiere Ceremony, MusiCares’ Person of the Year, and the Pre-GRAMMY Gala, according to the Recording Academy.
