Both the Grammy Awards and the Sundance Film Festival have changed their 2022 plans due to a rise in COVID-19 cases across the country. The Grammy Awards show has been postponed until further notice, and the Sundance Film Festival will go virtual, rather than risk an in-person event.

The Grammy Awards was postponed last year because of the pandemic and was held in March without a live audience. Viewership for the 2021 Grammys broadcast reportedly hit a record low.
