The Grammy Awards 2021 were originally delayed due to the pandemic, and took place in March as an outdoor, socially-distanced awards presentation with some of the biggest stars in the music industry wearing masks and sitting at small, safely spaced tables.
"We are going to be in person," Winston said. "We have designed a set and a way of doing it that I first thought of a year ago when it was clear we probably wouldn't be able to have that live audience."
It featured a pandemic-altered red carpet with only four photographers, taking stars' pictures from 15 feet away, and five media outlets interviewing artists, who are each only allowed one guest, from within their "media pods" or platforms, separated by partitions.
